ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is a band that needs to be seen live. This band is echolyn. Yes, the studio albums are wonderful and to them we listen. But echolyn was and is more than their albums. Stars and Gardens is echolyn. For many, the footage here on these DVD\'s may be their first look at one of the most remarkable American bands of our time. Enjoy the performance. Enjoy the artistry. Enjoy the embrace. For other\'s, like myself, watching Stars and Gardens helps us feel as we did when we sat in the theaters and clubs that housed the intensity that is echolyn. Stars and Gardens forever captures not only the music but it also showcases, astonishingly well, the people who are the music.

Stars and Gardens is over 3 and ½ hours in length, 150 minutes on stage and 70 minutes of echolyn history. The concert footage was filmed May 25, 2003, at Sellersville Theater using 6 cameras, HD, 16 mm, BETA SP. The audio was recorded digitally live with 32 channels and mixed by Brett Kull.

Echolyn has been creating music for 15 years. They have composed and produced over 80 songs. They have gained an international audience and always working on new and pertinent material.

ECHO OF THE PAST AND REALITY OF THE PRESENT
This is a great document to discover the band or to add to your collection of the bands'stuff. We get a full concert with great set list where the best is at the end where they play the 50 minutes mei song. The only downside is there's no light show at all, but who cares, the music come first with this band. The archives in the second disk are good and funny at times but mostly touching when you see them live in the small clubs just like i saw them 10 years ago for the price of 5$ in my home town.

a Prog fan must have
Echolyn's Stars and Gardens is an incredible event. Living on the left coast keeps me from having an opportunity to witness this great American prog band, however, Stars and Gardens is the next best thing. Incredibly tight production, nice camera work and awesome sound.

Jeremy Weissenburger

Insightful look into little-known prog band. The music? Wow!!
The concert itself is almost worth the price of the DVD. Great performances by all the musicians. But the real treat is the interview disc, which gives insight to most of the bands' albums. It's good to see that musicians are out there playing music they WANT to play! Some of the effects seem a little odd on the DVD, but I wasn't expecting a Floyd-like laser-light show, either. If you are a fan of independent and daring music, I suggest you get this DVD!

Eric Grenier

Un excellent DVD
J'ai vu ce concert l'an dernier à Québec et j'attendais avec impatience la sortie de ce DVD. La musique d'Echolyn est extraordinaire et pouvoir regarder ces musiciens performer live à profusion est extraordinaire, le son est excellent, la performance est majestueuse, la vidéo est bien monté et nous présente des flash back très intéressants. Amateurs de prog avertis... Vous serez ici fort bien servi.

Si vous aimez la musique d'Echolyn, procurez vous immédiatement ce DVD sans aucune hésitation.

Test For Echo!

Ed Payne

An outstanding look into Echolyn performance and history.
Quick summary: if you like Echolyn, then you MUST get this DVD set. I haven't had the chance to watch/listen on my high-end reference system, but on a normal system the performance is top-notch, as is the audio quality. I'm not fond of "special effects" on live shows and I felt some were a little too much. But, that is only a minor annoyance to a superb performance. The one special effect (if it can be called that) I found quite nice was the early studio footage at the beginning of "Wormwood" in sync with the live performance. That was used a couple of times in a fine manner, this one being the best. I loved the interviews and historical look into the band and all their albums. I wish there would have been more detail about the breakup years, but this is about Echolyn not Finneus Gauge or Still. I am very pleased to add this to my DVD collection and I'll be leaving it in the DVD changer for quite a while.

Warren Foster

Best thing I've watched in years
Beautifully Done! I loved the entire work. Audio and Visual. Great intensity. The effects add plenty of dimension and expression. The band rocks. The sound is awesome.

Chris Davis

It will do until Echolyn play Wales!
Does what it says on the packet (well it would if the packet said 'here's a live concert from Echolyn on DVD, so you can see what they are like, even though you're unlikely ever to see them in the flesh!'). The first CD is the concert, including a version of MEI that sounds prety faithful to the studio version, and it's nice to see the extra musicians getting into it. There's also an epic version of Shades to finish off. The second disc is good for those of us who enjoy background details. If you like Echolyn, get it. If you've never heard of them, then give it a go!

Eric Giguère

Excellent !
Vous savez tous qu'Echolyn est un excellent groupe. Le DVD du spectacle est très bon, autant pour la qualité des images, du son que pour le groupe qui performe très bien. La seule chose qui m'agace est l'utilisation «abusive» d'effet vidéo. Cela ne doit cependant pas être un obstacle pour vous procurer le DVD. Les interviews et les vidéos du deuxième DVD sont très intéressants. N'hésitez pas !

Charles R. Husson

Every Echolyn fan should have this DVD
Once this DVD became available again, I ordered it immediately, and was not disappointed when it finally came. The concert is great and the archival disc is entertaining and informative. The comments by the band during the 'Making of ATW' are priceless. I wasn't distracted by the visual effects, but I could have done without them. The audio is excellent (although not 5.1 as one reviewer said). If you are interested enough in the group to even be on this page,you need to order this before it becomes unavailable (again).

John Gardner

Wonderful!
A must have DVD for any Echolyn fan! After listening to this band for years, its nice to finally see these guys perform! And what a show they put on :)

The audio production is excellent and the video quality is good.
