John and Ben discuss the show's 50th(!!!!) record, Solace's 2003 doom/stoner/hardcore freight train of righteous heaviness, 13. Originally released on Meteor City, 13 breaks away from the monolithic nature of the band's debut album, Further, and presents a more eclectic and arguably more effective showcase for Solace's unique and powerful brand of heavy. Throughout, the group uses distortion and seething aggression to create a level of emotional resonance and catharsis seldom found in any of the genres to which one might say the album belongs.
The Greatest Thing You've Never Heard is a like a book club for your next favorite record. Each episode is an in-depth examination of a single album that's worthy of greater recognition. Our co-hosts, Ben and John, spend a full episode discussing an album and then often use a follow-up episode to interview the band that recorded it.
