Cowboy Poems Free is my fav from the band although the debut is also right there for me as a close second.

I think "Mei" is one of the most brilliant, coherent long songs that's not a mere pastiche of a bunch of smaller songs.

Their first, with Mei a close second. Just about everything is brilliant, though.

Close call between The End Is Beautiful and Suffocating The Bloom.
 
I'll vote the latter.

Voted "Mei," but give me just about any one of them and I'd be happy- my third favorite band behind Kansas and Yes.

Wow, Echolyn is one of the best bands I've ever heard! I love everything they've done, but I'm going to have to say that Suffocating the Bloom is my favorite, followed by Mei and As the World.

Excellent band, I only have As The World and it is very good. But I did had a hard time getting into Mei, I have to check it again since it's so favorable.

Voted Mei - great slab of prog.
 
Yet I think I might just prefer the new self-titled album released this year.
 
It's currently having a big punch-up with Big Big Train's new one for my album of the year. Though I suspect Marillion's new one might have a say in the matter...

As The World impressed me a lot, but more than Suffocationg... did.

Mei is amazing. Their other stuff ranges from ok to good, IMO.
You love the music, the music loves you!
