4 stars Mei from 2002 is another worthy affait by Echolyn, is like a musical jorney never wanted to end, The album consisted only by one piece clocking around 50 min is a totaly blast, at least for my ears. Again the musicianship is top notch, the alternating moements between slow and mellow parts with more up tempo is awesome here. Quite complicated symphonic prog with many twists and turns where the ideas are concentraded to give one pleasent unit in the end. Echolyn manage again to release more then a great album, each musician involved here is in their best form and is clear that the reputetion they've made across the years is not by chamnce. I really like this one , maybe better then As the world because here I find the band to be very mature, the previous works were very good aswell, but this time they really done it. This is the kind of symphonic prog I like to here every day, inventive, complex with outstandic instrumental passages. I have to check their best album many considered to be their second one Suffocating the bloom to make some compartaion, as untill then this one is better or I like better then As the world who already was a big album in their career. Echolyn remains one of the top bands of the genre that every fan must check at least 3-4 of their albums. 4 stars for sure.
