Darryl Way – Myths, Legends and Tales
Darryl Way’s music is not for the faint of heart, as his latest CD “Myths, Legends and Tales” is a culmination of progressive rock meets symphonic rock, which is a torturous listening affair.
The auditory torture begins with the first song “Apollo (Racing Against The Sun)”, with Way’s monotonous vocal performance coming across as a major pain in the ass, His singing just bloody drags on and on and on, whoa, what a freaking trip it is. Musically, it is okay, nothing out of the ordinary, as the rock-sounding violins backed by a progressive rock rhythm guitar adds some variation to his epic sound.
There are ten songs on this album, but personally, I had to stop at track number seven, “The Ice Man”, which was pure agony listening to Way’s one dimensional, coma induced vocals, as they just sounded like shit.
Personally, I cannot even go writing about this release without bashing it any further, as “Myths, Legends and Tales” is a very, very disappointing release, as it offers nothing new, and the vocals sound like a talent show entrant. Pass this one up – do not waste your time or money here. Check out the new Toto and Intelligent Music Project, as these releases simply smoke.
