Album of the Day

echolyn: mei. Yesterday I talked about echolyn reforming in 2000 and plowing new ground. Well, this 2002 release is just what I was talking about. One track, clocking in at almost 50 minutes, that has an "On the Road" feel to it (it's great for a long drive). The modern echolyn is less extroverted than they were in the Suffocating the Bloom . . . days, but the music is still very complex, tightly layered stuff. Over the course of things mei rises and falls before slowly fading away. It's a brilliant album.
