A Strange Encounter is the fourth studio album by Conish indie rock band Thirteen Senses. It was released on 5 May 2014.
Norman Fleischer gave a mixed review of the album, noting the Thirteen Sense's failure to live up to the initial success of The Invitation. Fleischer writes:
"On the other side A Strange Encounter somehow also sees the band liberating itself from any expectations. But somehow it also feels a bit more like a tender final wave from a talented band like the desperately needed new start. This gives the new Thirteen Sense record a somehow bittersweet aftertaste. And ironically that's the most fitting environment for their music." .
