The plain reality is that not many bands make it to their 13th album. For those that do, it's a testament to their endurance, but the question is, "Just how good can a band possibly be that deep into their career?" In the spirit of Friday the 13th, we rounded up 13 artists to talk about the best 13th rock and metal albums.
Let's make this clear right from the start — a number of these releases are fairly divisive and were even considered to be somewhat of a head-scratcher when they were released. Yes, we're looking at you, Rush's Presto, but that's okay because Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy had a sharp perspective that may help paint that record in a new light if you haven't been able to get into much before now.
