3 stars More complex synchopation, rhythmic gymnastics and infectious energy abound in "As the World", in fact, "As the World" is so similar to its excellent predecessor that it is sometimes hard to distinguish the two.

The title tracks fantastic fretwork starts things off with a bang, and the energy doesn't let up. However, I maintain that Echolyn's music starts to collapse under its own dexterity and inspiring lyrics before this album's 70 minute (!) length concludes. A great listen in small doses, but it would have been nice to hear a little more experimentation from a band that clearly has the chops to wow us. Still, a worthy purchase for fans and newcomers.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 2
