mei is the sixth full-length studio album by the American rock band Echolyn, released in 2002.

Unlike its precursor Cowboy Poems Free (2000), mei is a typical progressive (symphonic) rock album in that it consists of few, longer, songs with many instrumental sections and complex structures instead of the normal song structure, including verse, chorus etc.

Jersey Tomato[edit]

In 2003 Echolyn released an official bootleg recording titled Jersey Tomato vol. 2 (live at the Metlar Bodine Museum) where mei is included as the ninth and last track. It takes up the whole second disc and the length of the track is just over 50 minutes. The song, and the rest of the album, is available for download on the band's website.
