Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I listened to this for at least two months and loved about 80 percent of the songs. Great songs great lyrics great band. Then something clicked. As I noticed that all the songs run together I went back and read all the lyrics. It was then that I understood why there was a prologue that told the listener to open the booklet and read along. Sorry for those that are Christian theme wary, but don't worry this one is one that appeals to anyone and every human. The story is simple, it's a journey of one man that is tired of doing the right thing and wants to "be with" this girl. If it's for love then why is it wrong? He just "Wants to wake up in someone else's arms" Which is the first track after the flashback prefaced in the first real song "We're So Far Away"

3) Someone Else's Arms - "I've got a feeling It's not the safest place to start. This heavy breathing, it seems we're better off breaking hearts." He knows they are lusting after each other and want more. Should they really break each others hearts rather than give in? "I just want to wake up, wake up in someone else's arms "

4) "Suspension" is the fourth song (counting the prolog) where he says he's not scared and he's ready to do it, but knowing what this means he makes it obvious he wants the girl also to realize what they're about to do: "Say anything, but say what you mean. When you whisper you want this." - Separation from him and God.

5) "This is the Countdown": There in they' did it. I picture this the day after. The whole conversation is him and the girl thinking about what they did their previous dilemma with doing it and the rationalization: "Did you think that the night would posses us, Take us over like the rain that's falling down?

This was an impulse buy, I saw it on sale at Best Buy and decided to buy it. I can't say enough about how well crafted the CD is. Mae (Which stands for Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience) lives up to their name, providing 13 tracks of pure, rich, audio, and an accompanying booklet full of beautiful artwork ala Maurice Sendak's "Where the wild things are."

The Album starts and ends with a friendly voice explaining how the book and CD interact, creating a storytelling mood - and the music fits the mood perfectly. Pop piano reminiscent of Ben Folds combines with smoothly distorted guitars, powerful percussion, and beautiful harmonized vocals. About the only drawback to the disc is that it's difficult to pick out any given song; not that every song sounds the same, rather Mae created a CD with 13 songs that form one giant story. And, like any good concept album, the songs are abstract, and somewhat hard to understand unless you have the accompanying booklet and illustrations.

Really, The Everglow is a story about a journey, and to appreciate it, a full listen to the CD's one hour plus runtime is needed. But, a dedicated listener will be richly rewarded by this multisensory experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mae- The Everglow September 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"The Everglow" unites the band Mae in a single front like none other album. As soon as you open the CD, you realize that this is indeed a work of true art to be experienced. The front insert is illustrated as if it were a children's book with a different illustration on each page that represents each track. The album, going along with the theme of the insert, opens with the faux crackling of an old record player and consists of Rob Sweitzers moving keyboard work as a calm female's voice welcomes you to the "Everglow" in a tone reminiscent of children's book recordings, reminding the listener to "turn the page" and "please read along in the booklet". The dramatic title track follows this original introduction with gorgeous piano work by Sweitzer and honey-like vocals from Dave Elkins. The listener, throughout the first few tracks, is still unsure of exactly which genre this band prefers. The piano's soothing accompaniment smoothly flows into a well blended Forte of the entire instrumental section, including drummer Jacob Marshall, guitarist Zach Gehring, bassist Mark Padgett, and Elkins on vocals and backup guitar, along with Sweitzers playing electric keys. The word "Mae" stands for "Multisensory Aesthetic Experience". According to drummer Marshall, the founder of the band Mae, the title represents the question, "What would music look like is you could see it? What would it feel like and how would it taste?" The musicians question the listeners with each track, challenging us to dig deeper into the musical experience, as they have done so well in "The Everglow". Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Storywriting and Sophomoric Genius All-in-one April 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Mae's first album, Destination: Beautiful was a solid soundtrack with some true gems. But nothing to get excited about...however, feast your eyes on The Everglow- Mae's second album that is an amazing journey into true love. I've never seen such a great piece of art. The fact that this is only the second album by this band makes you think, "They conceived this??"

The album jacket contains pictures for basically each song that try and help give you an image of what's going on and the entire cd is supposed to be a story- and it's an extremely good story, at that!

1)Prologue- this track is just telling you that the cd is a story and that you should follow along with the cd booklet.

2) We're So Far Way- 8/10- an astounding piano track that really sets the scene for the album. As a song it deserves an 8/10- but as an intro track to the cd? 10/10- it puts you in the perfect mood to enjoy the rest of the album.

3) Someone Else's Arms- 9/10- everything about this song rocks, especially the outro with the vocals just overtaking your mind.

4) Suspension- 10/10- I don'thave to say a word about this album. It is pure genius and absolutely stunning. The drums are very cool, and if you ask me, they drive the song.

5) This is the Countdown- 8/10- Great vocals, but nothing else that's too exciting. Still an awesome song!

6) Painless- 9/10- Fun guitar during the chorus, an infectious piano part and deep lyrics make this a musical-triumph.

7) The Ocean- 10/10- Here's one of those perfect ballad. The lyrics portraying love in a way that's supremely satisfying and spot-on vocals, the Ocean is a wonderful track.
