13/4 puts the accent on the next note every bar, so that's pretty weird

But if the whole song is that rhythm (OK, it may also sound cool) or you have many songs that all use the same idea, it starts to sound like a cliche and a bit forced. So be careful with it. Many times things sound the best when the listener can't expect them.
Yeah, it can. I tend to write minimal repetitive stuff and it generally caters well to that but yeah you hear it in proggy stuff a lot. A lot of math rock bands do it before each chorus or something and that can word a bit better. I'll check that song out though. How are his last few albums?

Pretty old, yeah. I still think it's worth a few more good laughs. How about this:

My favorite time signature is


That's some artistic, boundary-pushing music right there.

Holy shit, dat necro.


My favorite odd time sigs are still 5/8 and 7/8. I prefer to stay away from overly complex time sigs, and rather, write polymetric/polyrhythmic stuff. And throw in some weird tuplet groupings for good measure.

EDIT: Well, that's sort of a lie, I recently wrote something that alternates between 15/16, 4/4 and 7/8 in a pretty short amount of time.

I do like 5/4 and 7/8 time but I generally play in 2/4, 3/4 or 4/4.
