5 stars For those who do not know ECHOLYN's music let me try to entice you by reviewing one of my favourites "Suffocating The Bloom". Blend the complex song structures of GENTLE GIANT with HAPPY THE MAN's syncopation and you are not far off of ECHOLYN. This cd is full of surprises and hidden magical musical passages that will surely please all prog heads. "Suffocating..." delivers classic ECHOLYN with major tempo and mood swings offering a variety of short and long tracks throughout. Songs mostly tie together encapsulating another mind twisting concept album. There is not a moment wasted here as the listener is forced into active listening being challenged by the solid musical workout (better than Jane Fonda!!!). This music will hold your attention and probably require many listens before it is totally internalized and interpreted by your brain. This is an essential prog recording to adorn your collection. This is a highly treasured recording by ECHOLYN heads and is considered by many to be their best release.
