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

Love this album

One of the only problems with You Can't Trust a Ladder was that most of the tracks sounded similar. I am very pleased to say that this album provides a much more diverse sound while still maintaining everything that makes The Myriad's sound so great. People call this band unorigional, but I am going to have to disagree. Yes, The Myriad, along with an exceptionally huge number of modern bands, have been heavilly influenced by Coldplay and U2, but this music is a far cry from Coldplay. The beauty of this band's sound (in my oppinon) is the fact that there is often a whole bunch of stuff going on at once, but it never sounds busy. In other words, there is a lot of depth to the music, but at the same time you can still just sit back and listen to nothing in particular. This band is a breath of fresh air in Christian music, and I am excited to see how they continue to develop.

Great Album, Great Price

Every song is great, and you get all of them plus the music video for $8! Buy it!

Fantastic

Why so few reviews? This CD is awesome, and you get so much for 8 bucks! 14 songs AND the video, very nice deal. Get it before the price goes up because it's totally worth it!
