^ Judgements on first listens are always dangerous, but, what the hell. This is sumptuous, and I can feel an extension to Echolyn albums in the collection coming on.

I'm glad you took the plunge!  In my opinion, their top five albums are (in order):

1. Mei
2. Cowboy Poems Free
3. The End is Beautiful
4. Suffocating the Bloom
5. As the World

I would have the same top five but I would switch 1 and 2 and also 3 and 4.

No doubt about it! Even as derivative (I dislike that word) as the debut is, I like it too. It's all great! But understand that every album is different. Unlike some bands that have multiple albums that seem to have interchangeable songs, they don't. Each is unique in style and approach.
