Have not seen a appreciation topic on Echolyn. Great American prog band. Any fans out there? The End is Beautiful and Mei are my favorites. However, all other releases are great and the DVD Stars and Gardens is incredible.

Yep, I live in the Philly area so I have seen them live on a few occasions. I even interviewed them once. They are overdue for a new album but the last one was pretty good. Great US prog band that helped "save" prog in the 90's.

Yep. A fine bunch of guys too. I even hung out with them backstage and drank beer with them once when I volunteered at a prog music festival they played at. No, I'm not bragging. The important thing is the music.

Fourth favorite band of all time.

I've interviewed Kull once:


And I spoke to him again over the phone a few summers ago.  Nothing formal.  Just an hour or so of friendly conversation and he answered some things I'd been curious about regarding their work.  Truly, he sounded more excited to hear from me than I was to be on the phone with him.

I've been around a little bit here and there.  My priorities are different than they were ten years ago (three kids, mortgage, etc. etc.), but I still love the music.

Been listening to a lot of RUSH lately.  Sad news.

A band I only discovered very late and now I dream that they may release an extensive box set. All I have is a 2 CD 'Best of' in my collection. I would love to get their albums on CD but they are either out of print or just too expensive sadly.

^ Actually I might have been a little wrong as the first 2 albums are available for a reasonable price so I've placed an order. Happy days!

I prefer their earlier work, before they streamlined their sound a bit. But overall a great band. Suffocating The Bloom is a true classic. Love As The World, Mei, and The End Is Beautiful as well.

Out of curiosity...where is this? I'd love to get a copy of their debut.

Chris Buzby's Facebook page has mentioned a number of writing sessions they've had for a new album. I think they've been working on it going back to 2018. Chris is a really great guy. He posts a lot of puns that make you cringe and laugh at the same time.

Amazon.co.uk has The End is Beautiful, As the World, Mei and I Heard You Listening at decent prices.

One of the few second/third generation symphonic bands I really like.

Very reasonable prices on the synphonic website also(synphonicmusic.com). Just go to the USA section then Echolyn.

weirdly there are 2 albums called Echolyn . It appears I have ordered the second one but Amazon incorrectly lists it on the summary page as 1991 but it's actually the 2012 version I have ordered. Confused.com!!

Indeed you are correct but as I have Suffocating the Bloom and Echolyn (2012) on order I will stick with that for the moment

Again I hope you guys order from prog vendors(like the one I mentioned above) when possible and not major corporations like amazon who already get billions from everyone else.
