4. Review of first Still CD, from Harmonie magazine #32 (September 1997). (coming soon...)  "...Still's grunge approach has class. These fellows are musicians above all.

TRANSLATION: Echolyn is certainly reminiscent of Gentle Giant. But the influence works beautifully indeed, and I have to say that the songs certainly sound nice. The performance is super all around; pleasant vocals; cool melodies that stick in your head; fluid sounds. A few convoluted time signatures creep through, and I could do without the "classical" intro -- just to point out some possible blemishes -- however, for me this is one of the best prog albums I've heard in a long time.

(High Wheel are a german progressive rock band who come from Munich. The group is made up of four members who between them play: guitars,keyboards, bass, drums, flute and all members add vocals. Excellent sophisticated compositions that the band use to full effect in their long compositions. Power chords are used sparingly and within the right settings of each composition. Good keyboard work and vocals are sung in English.)
