5 stars This is the one! True masterpiece of progressive music! When I first listened to it (about a month ago) I immediately realised where Echolyn are coming from. I like Echolyn very much (on the basis of "Suffocating the bloom" and "As the world")- their style is quite unique and not derivative from anything I knew before (maybe very remotely reminding Gentle Giant, and that's about all). But now to me it looks like Echolyn are following steps of Mirthrandir. Mirthrandir are great - complex songs structure, charming melodies, strong vocal and extremely skillful musicianship - everything there. Their only album is only 38 mins long, but the intensity of music and density of musical ideas is so high that the likes of Flower Kings could do two double albums out of it. The only pity is that such great musicians as Mirthrandir put out just one studio album, to my knowledge this is the only one(if anyone knows about anything else by them - could you pls let me know?) Mirthrandir are the band of the highest class and cannot recommend this album enough. If you are into this kind of music - it will definitely grow upon you everytime you spin it again.
