Album Review

The label says the Myriad are recommended if you like Ours, Interpol, and Kent. True enough, but they're dancing around the more obvious point: these guys are really recommended if you like Coldplay, which is another way of saying that they're recommended if you like U2. The comparison is impossible to avoid, especially on such anthemic fare as "When Fire Falls," and even more especially every time singer Jeremy Edwardson really starts feeling the spirit and opens his throat up wide. None of this is a criticism, really; sounding like U2 is quite an accomplishment, given that U2 have done one or two stints as the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band. But it's also not a completely unreserved recommendation, since there's already a perfectly good U2 out there with a nice, deep catalog. If you're looking for reasons to give these guys your attention, then do it for the multi-layered and really brilliantly arranged guitar parts and the unabashed religious devotion of the lyrics, which are custom-made for an audience that always found U2 just a bit too coy in their proselytizing. Recommended.

Customer Reviews


I saw these guys last night on the Up In Arms Tour with Switchfoot and athlete, and let me tell you, they are just as good live. They were outside signing things at the merchandise table, and they were so so nice. They actually took the time to talk to us and sign things. Buy everything. I already preordered With Arrows, With Poise.


These guys are going to be huge. They are one of the best bands around and this is their first album, so it's not too late to jump on the train. The Myriad is the best new addition to your playlist.


iTunes gets this cd after 2 years. If you like Christian music get this. Stretched Over and We Will Be Dissapointed Together are awesome.


Formed: Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Taking cues from Muse, Coldplay, and even the Bravery, Seattle alt-rock outfit the Myriad began with university students Jeremy Edwardson and John Roger Schofield. Determined to start a band in which all members had equal artistic input, the duo recruited Randy Miller, Jonathan Young, and Steven Tracy to join them in the endeavor. 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....
