iTunes Review

The Myriad’s approach to Christian alt-rock favors atmosphere over evangelism. With Arrows, With Poise, the Seattle band’s second album, uses indirection to drive home its points about spiritual blindness and the imminent presence of the divine. Front man Jeremy Edwardson sings with an insinuating croon that mocks the material world while hinting at his own nagging fears. Vague threats and unsettled emotions hang over “Grandfather Clock,” “Throwing Punches,” “Stuck in a Glass Elevator,” and similar tracks. Though the mood never quite gets sunny, songs like “A Thousand Winters Melting,” “The Holiest of Thieves,” and “Better than the Rest” offer hopeful glimpses of a higher world. Love — both mortal and otherwise — makes its presence known in the sleekly-contoured “A Clean Shot.” Spiky lead guitar and shimmering keyboards define the album’s sound, suggesting a blend of Radiohead, Mutemath, and the more angular aspects of Coldplay. Funky yet furtive grooves lend a disquieting twitch to “Polar Bears and Shark Fins” and “Forget What You Came For.” With Arrows, With Poise is a work of uneasy exaltation and fog-shrouded faith.

Customer Reviews

poor reviews!???

I have personally gotten to know these guys over the past couple of years and watch them progress. With arrows with poise is an amazing album and a huge step up, a far cry from what some might call "emo". True emo fans know that the myriad is under a classification unto themselves. I didn't think that they could beat You can't trust a ladder, but they did and then some, amazing album with no poor songs, definitely get your money's worth with this purchase. Great live shows as well! say hi, get to know them...

up 2 par

I can say I liked it more than I thought I would. I call this driving music something to chill and listen to by yourself. In other words something to buy for the drive.

A message for all

I love this album!! It speaks to all christains about Gods love for them. This album also speaks about a pure love. It has a message for everyone :)

Their debut album, You Can't Trust a Ladder, was released in 2005. The Myriad's biggest boost came in December 2007, when the band won MTV2's Dew Circuit Breakout competition....
