2 stars Australian project Myriad was an idea of singer/multi-instrumentalist Matthew Heindorff, who started it in 1995, based in Brisbane.In his first work he collaborated with drummer Justyn Roebig.The album carried the title ''Sea of the Sinking Sun'' and was privately released in June 1996.

The album follows the Space Rock vein, based on the use of floating synthesizers, atmospheric guitars and hypnotic singing lines, creating a spacey and sometimes somber mood, no matter the track is long or short.There is some sporadic use of piano and organ here and there and the musicianship is quite laid-back, almost based on chill-out tunes.Heindorff often uses also some sound effects in order to come up with even more atmospheric soundscapes.The lack of some energy, the similarity between all cuts along with the very short length of the album (just over 30 minutes) are the biggest problems of ''Sea of the Sinking Sun''.I could name also the absence of some haunting melodies as well, but this part is overcome through the carefully structured pieces, which are not spectacular by any means, but overall complete a decent listening.

This is not a bad album.The music is above average, the vocals are also nice, but it misses some nerve and twists to be fully recommended.Nevertheless this could be a decent listening for fans of the style...2.5 stars.
