Editorial Reviews

The Myriad proves why they have been such a buzz band on the West Coast-intelligent lyrics, solid hooks and music more reminiscent of bands from Europe than from the U.S.

I fell in love with it right away.
The Teej
The album then continues with great song after great song, all containing wonderfully intelligent lyrics and catchy melodies.

The next, they show a definitive pop flair for perfect driving down the road music with "perfect obligation".

This, the first full length, record-label sanctioned album by the lovely boys in the Myriad is indeed like the first taste of honey mead after a long, hard fought battle with broad swords, maces, and battle axes: It is a cool, sweet, refreshing draught of sound amid all the cookie-cutter bands/albums that are such the rage at present.

This is truly a fantastic, unique album. "You Can't Trust a Ladder" is a perfect blend of arty, edgy rock cool and deliciously melodic, poppy song writing. The album sucks you in immediately with a great rocker (and my personal favorite on the record)..."Stretched Over". The vocal melodie is absolutely infectious. The album then continues with great song after great song, all containing wonderfully intelligent lyrics and catchy melodies. There are swanky, dancy pop-rock songs like "Perfect Obligation," beautiful vibey songs with haunting bakcground vocals like "A New Language," energy-filled rockers like "Godray," and epic-like builders like the closing track "We Will Be Disappointed Together."

The album is filled with great instrumental colors, and the musicianship is of the highest quality. Plus, they use a cello bow on the guitar, which earns them massive cool points. And one song is intro'd by a 30 second vibraphone track....more cool points. The album is produced by the great Aaron Marsh of Copeland fame, who also provides some beautiful background vocals on a number of tracks (just listen to the bgv's on "A New Language" and try not to swoon with delight....). In conclusion, this album is a must have. Purchase it now, or risk the wrath of a slighted scimitar-weilding warrior.

The Myriad have done their homework and figured out the perfect formula for how to create an awesome CD. The first track wastes no time in grabbing your attention and letting you rock out completely, and you're hooked for the next 38 minutes. With a sound that is a hybrid of Radiohead, Muse, Lostprophets, and even Deftones on one track, The Myriad have very effectively fused together raw rock with great production. While this debut may have just been released, one can only hope that sophomore followup album isn't far behind. If the band is coming to a town near you, I highly recommend checking them out, as well as adding them to your MySpace if you have one. They treat their fans great and while the chances of them making it big are high, they haven't lost touch with reality one bit (Heck, the thank you section of the liners probably takes up the most space of anything in there!).

Bottom line: If you're looking for a new favorite band and are into Radiohead, Muse, Lostprophets, Snow Patrol, or any band with that style, buy this CD and give The Myriad a shot; chances are the only regret you'll have afterward is that there aren't anymore songs to listen to.

The Myriad show the ability to tackle a broad array of sounds and musical styles. At one moment, they deliver music to kick back to on a cold winter day with such tunes as "The Last Time". The next, they show a definitive pop flair for perfect driving down the road music with "perfect obligation". Finally, they drive home quality rock with "stretched over" and "we will be disappointed". Many compare them to such as muse, snow patrol, interpol, and jimmy eat world - all of which I enjoy. But I beg to differ that the Myriad intertwines the best of all worlds to chart their own unique sound - a sound that will be worth following as it develops from this solid, don't miss debut.

The Myriad has tuned into the world of raw music. Critics and those critical alike have taken to the debut album "You Can't Trust a Ladder" with the liking of 7 year old with his new 'erector set.' Fans have packed clubs, bars, and concert halls to get a glimpse of the newest band that has inspired and rocked a new generation of those that are most appreciative of the art of music. This album is solid from the first to the 11th track. Each of the songs speaks to a world in peril and offers both an artistic and spiritual revival to those in need. If you have enjoyed the music of Radiohead, U2, The Muse, Copeland, etc, The Myriad will bring a fresh and soul fulfilling edge to the even the finickiest of listeners, and truly please those who enjoy the above mentioned genre. The band is most assuredly a fan-based band. I watched a show in Costa Mesa, CA days ago, and was pleasantly surprised to see the fan interaction and the time and genuine attention paid to each of those who appreciate their work.

From the fans to the Myriad..........Keep on Rockin'

I first discovered this band when they opened for A Beautiful Mistake and was very impressed with their sound (they played so tightly, and the mix was so good it was as if I was listening to a CD rather than a live band). The music was good, with solid beats and enchanting rhythm and melody (my first observation was the Radiohead influence - but that's not to say they're a knock-off). This CD has a good mix of more upbeat, energetic tracks and gentler more harmonic ones. The Myriad apparently claim to be a religious band (or is it just some joke of theirs?), but with songs about relationships and life's uncertainties, their religious leanings are not obvious - that is they don't sing "rock and roll hymns," like most modern religious groups - which in my mind makes them more accessable to a wider audience. Though I suppose one could read into the lyrics as much as one wants. In short, this is a very well produced, well written and well arranged debut album, even if a little bubble-gummy. Though I actually liked them more live, This CD is worth a shot.
