This review is excerpted from Clayton's July 5, 2004 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

Myriad plays progressive metal very much in the vein of Rush. Guitarist Ed Moehring is the star here, turning out everything from mellow pickings to torrid solos. This is not to take away from the other members, talented players all. Bass player Brian Cohen lacks the melodic touch of Geddy Lee, but pulls together a pounding bottom end that, along with drummer Tom Spagna, solidly anchors the band. (Once in a while, Cohen cuts loose, such as in the prelude to "Natural Elements Suite.") Guitarist Moehring handles the vocals, and while he won't flabbergast you with his prowess, he possesses a pleasant voice that he uses effectively. The CD comes packaged in a beautiful, full-color digipak. Professional all the way.
