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

Review by Tyler Wagnon:
Alongside their Christian brethren Copeland, The Myriad does their best to write dramatic songs in the vein of Coldplay and Radiohead. Read more

This is an undeniably great work by this new artist. I always love artists that seem to remind you of others that have gone before, but are defined by none of them. Read morePublished on July 22, 2005 by S. A. Brisendine
