Though it looks somewhat better on paper than it sounds as a completed album, 13 & God is a compelling experiment of indie collaboration. Like so many projects of its nature, this self-titled album began with tapes and discs traded in the mail between artists. Eventually the two parties, Germany's glitchy electronic rockers the Notwist and U.S. left-field hip-hoppers Themselves, assembled together in Germany to recorded the finishing touches that would glue the fragments and puzzle pieces together.

Their review was highly critical

13 & God is a collaboration between the German pop group the Notwist and the American experimental hip-hop group Themselves (Doseone, Jel and now Dax Pierson). The album was recorded before all three members of Themselves were involved in an accident in which Pierson was seriously injured. Unfortunately for fans of the brilliant Themselves, this is an awkward pairing – there are a number of nice moments, but many haven’t been fully developed, and seams divide them.
