Mother Machine Gun is another heavy track, but it begins with a soft drum line and melodic keyboard riffs, only to lead into some heavy chugging riffs and scathing roars from J Mann.
Not one of the more catchier songs on the album, but a good, strong track overall. Nowhere To Go is one of my favorite tracks on the album, with atmospheric riffs starting off immediately after Almost Gone - Mushroomhead - XIII (CD last tracks ends. There is also a lot of good ambient breakdowns between sweeping riffs and apocalyptic keyboard atmospheres.
The song is very catchy and is one of the stand out tracks on the album. Becoming Cold is one of the heavier songs on the album. The track begins with some heavy, thrashy riffs and vocal duets between Jeffery Nothing and J Mann. The song has some good chorus melody with Jeffery Nothing, and J Mann gives a good performance with the thrashy riffs.
Again, not a major standout track, but a good solid track overall. The next song, One More Dayis the ballad song on the album. Jeffery Nothing dominates the track on vocals along with guest female vocalist Devon Gorman.
The song is basically an industrial piano ballad, containing only some doom inspired riffs that come in throughout, which help build the druggy atmosphere of the song. This song is another one of the best songs on the album, and is by far the best song in vocal performances. Being a very heavy, thrashy, Meshuggah inspired song, mostly scathing guitar riffs and chugging riffs dominate the track. The song is a lot more straight foreword then the last track with Jeffery Nothing, and gets rather boring near the end.
Almost Gone begins with what sounds like a motor cycle being geared up before an aura of upbeat riffs take over. The track has a bigger focus on Jeffery Nothing and his singing along with the grooving riffs and keyboard backdrop.
Eternal is another short, thrashy song, with even occasional blast beats put in the song. Mostly dominated by J Mann and his rap growls, Jeffery Nothing makes some dynamic appearances with lighter guitar and keyboards only to fade out back into more thrashy riffs and heavy bass lines. The chorus to the song is very catchy throughout, and is musically one of the best songs on the album.
J Mann, however, feels a little out of place on the Almost Gone - Mushroomhead - XIII (CD, even with the chugging riffs due to his sharp screaming. Mushroomhead start to show their more progressive side with the epic track Destroy The World Around Me. The track begins with light keyboard riffs and melodies before going into a powerful guitar riff fueled with a strong keyboard chorus, Almost Gone - Mushroomhead - XIII (CD. The song then goes into focus on J Mann and some repetitive industrial noises.
The atmospheric riffs return along with Jeffery Nothing in a powerful chorus performance. Nearing the end the song even contains somewhat of a guitar solo before abruptly ending and fading out into ambiance.
Thirteen is for the most part a beautiful, atmospheric, ambient track, which great keyboard backdrop and static elements and synths. The song keeps this flow until around 5 minutes and 23 seconds into the 9 and a half minute epic. Overall, XIII is a great, almost epical album by this extremely unique band.
