1. mei (49.33)
of jack kerouac's "on the road"
and dante alighieri's "inferno"
In typical Echolyn fashion, the musical complexity, vocal arrangements are all here, with keyboardist Chris Buzby writing the orchestral score that is interspersed throughout. The band also thunders on sections such as "Fade Away", "Wishing You Away" among others. There is plenty of delightful hammond organ, and Kull's tasty licks float effortlessly through the piece. The dynamic range hits both ends, with some very soft, subtle moments countered by some of the most aggressive music the band has recorded. I think this is a record that you have to judge for yourself, no review can really do it justice.
