CD Reviews

Nice relaxing backround music
Gwen Kramer | 02/29/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Someone actually gave me a copy of this cd that didn't have the "similar to Enigma/Delerium/Deep Forest" sticker on it that I later saw attributed to it. I'd say it's the closest in sound to Delerium as both bands are Canadian, except I like Mythos *much* more than Delerium (although I still prefer Enigma to any of them, ranking Mythos to the same liking as Deep Forest). It has a more classical and gypsy feel to it with beautifully blended exotic vocals - nice atmospheric but not very intense music. Mythos however, is perfect backround music for reading, taking a bubble bath, a romantic dinner, or meditating as a opposed to more energizing activities like Deep Forest is more appropriate for. Highley reccommended!"
Smooth New Age/Electronica
Gwen Kramer | Sunny and not-so-sunny California | 01/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am not a particularly big fan of Deep Forest though I do enjoy a bit of Enigma. I found Mythos to be smooth and relaxing with a very slight touch of darkness. What is really most impressive is the sheer technical skill of the group. The guitar is flawless and the electronic soundscapes are imaginative. My only complaint is that occassionally the vocals interfere with the mood.My favorite tracks on this album are the darkly spectral ones like "Sirens" and "the Odessy" and the simple yet haunting ones like "Introspection"It took a few sessions in my CD player to absorb the delicious layers of music but it is now one of my favorite albums and I highly recommend it."
Entrancing Canadian New Age
Veggiechiliqueen | 10/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was first introduced to Mythos through the short-lived Canadian television series "Due South" which featured not one but two spinoff soundtrack CDs of Canadian talent. Mythos' "November" was on the second Due South CD and several of the songs from "Mythos" were used in various fourth-season episodes of "Due South." Mythos reminds me of Enigma, Sarah Brightman's "Dive" album, Gregorian, Deep Forest, Yanni, Vangelis, and Delerium. Mysterious choirs, floating guitar solos, prominent synth drumbeats, and multiple echo effects make you feel like you've just discovered another sonic universe full of mystery. There is an undercurrent of mystery and melancholy on some of the songs such as "November" and "Angels Weep." The female vocals are gorgeous and angelic. To me this album seems a natural extension of the synth work done on Sarah Brightman's "Dive" album, which included tracks such as "Siren", which very closely paralleled the "Sirens" track on "Mythos." Both albums are ocean-themed, featuring soothing, wavelike melodies and ethereal sopranos. This is Canadian New Age at its best. It never feels like forced "ethnic" music or beats, as do Deep Forest albums. The tracks flow smoothly into the next. I agree that it IS sometimes difficult to distinguish between the songs or to even recall a specific melody, but I use this CD for relaxation, not for choosing Juno Awards. And taken on that basis this is a wonderful CD and introduction to Mythos."
