Mythos: Higher Octave Musicby Mythos
Programmed beats, acoustic guitar, and synthesized ooohing and aaahing are all part of the recipe on Mythos' self-titled debut. The sources of these vocals are accomplished jazz and classical performers Jennifer Scott and Christine Duncan with Annette Ducharme, one of Canada's top singer/songwriters. The ever-present tinkling of high-end piano phrases and what sounds like Native American flute gives this CD a Windham Hill, new age feel.

If you like Enigma and Delerium, you will love Mythos. This album is just beautiful and elegant to listen to. One of my favorites.
Keyboardist Bob D¿Eith and guitarist Paul Schmidt paint a rich, ambient sound-picture over gentle percussion, highlighted by the unearthly vocalise of Jennifer Scott, Christine Duncan and Annette Ducharme. All the selections, while differing in melody and instrumentation, maintain a common ambience, flowing together to create a gorgeous, compelling whole. This is music better heard for yourself than described, so go choose a link and listen. This particular CD contains re-releases of some cuts from a previous album, ¿Introspection¿, but it is here in their self-titled release that the group finds optimal voice. Mythos continues in this vein with their subsequent release, ¿The Reality of a Dreamer¿.
