Another group along the lines of Era, Delerium and Enigma, Mythos (or Paul Schmidt and Bob D'Eith) here have included tracks from their previous album (the harder to find Introspection) and "seven new tracks". Comparing the track listings, I actually count eight new tracks, unless they renamed one...

Mythos' main focuses are Schmidt's guitarwork (shown off impressively on "La Cathedral") and D'Eith's piano. These combined with often ethereal vocals and a flowing backdrop of sound comprise the majority of the pieces on their self-titled album. As is common with this type of music, there are no distinguishable lyrics, with the vocals being used as another instrument to set mood and provide melody.

I'm quite fond of "The Odyssey" with its gothic sound and the rare use of male vocals. It has a nice, dramatic quality. "Evolution" reminds me a lot of the music from Mike Oldfield's Tr3s Lunas ("Evolution" came first).
