I am very pleased with this album. Mason Jennings is one of the few truly gifted singer songwriters that exist today. I have seen Mason in concert and up to this point I had not been able to find a few of the songs he sang live. Well two of them are on here this album, and one of them is the live version. If you have not heard his earlier stuff then you are missing out. I am not sure I would recommend this be your first Mason Jennings album. I would maybe recommend "Use Your Voice" / "Mason Jennings" / "Boneclouds" before you indulge into his other works. "Use Your Voice" is one of the best albums I have ever heard. If you are already a Mason Jennings fan then you will not be disappointed by this album. Also for those Mason newbies, Mason Jennings now has 7 full albums, the first one recorded in 1997. He just recently signed with Brushfire records, so if you are a reviewer who is going to claim that Mason is ripping off Jack Johnson, then do not bother, check the dates.

This is a great album and I am already looking forward to his next. Mason makes music the way he wants to and is not a product of the industry. All of his albums are worth owning.

Last but not least just remember "that there aint no rust on the happiness bus!!!"

Wow. Another great addition to the Mason Jennings catalog. It's hard to compare 'In The Ever' to Mason's previous albums, just that it has its own brand of super-dooperness. Like his other albums, however, it takes a few listens to truly appreciate the subtleties, most notably Jennings' fantastic songwriting. He continues to write clever, thoughtful and succinct lyrics, and is not afraid to take risks and experiment with new styles. Mason Jennings is a rare gift to today's music.

How does Mason Jennings do it? More specifically how does he deliver album after album of catchy, introspective, emotionally lived in folk songs that make you want to sing along even as they evoke strong emotions without ever resorting to cheap sentimentality? The answer is that he is a superbly gifted singer/songwriter who has been flying under the radar ever since his self titled debut album over a decade ago.

On his latest release, Mason once again delivers the goods. The songs are melodic and simple and can get stuck in your head for days. Lyrically, Jennings touches on themes he has visited before, love, faith, spiritual yearning and the need for human connection. He even tosses in some humor this time around with "Your New Man", a song in which he ponders how to win his ex back from her new love interest.

While this album is not as strong as his last two efforts, "Use Your Voice" and "Boneclouds", it is nevertheless an essential addition to his catalog. Jack Johnson may be surfing the wave of mainstream popularity these days, but it's Mason Jennings who, despite living in his shadow, is building a lasting and meaningful collection of popular music that will stand the test of time.

Hemingway once said, "...a writer needs to go out, beyond where anyone can reach him..." (Nobel prize acceptance speech) Meaning, take some chances to make art that is important and original. Mason has done that here.

If a casual fan of MJ, this one is safe to buy. If new to him, buy it, then go back to Use Your Voice and his self-titled debut. Diehards will be delighted with, In the Ever. It has the staple sing-alongs, but then ventures off into new territory; not as clean as Boneclouds which is a good thing. It's Use your Voice with more life under its belt.

I bought this album for my boyfriend for Christmas. Upon receiving it in the mail and taking it out of the cardboard package I noticed a pretty large dent in the cover..which irked me (to say the least..). I decided I would still give it to my boyfriend and he could then decide if he wants to take it back. Although the packaging made him a little upset, he decided to keep it fearing that the return would be a hassle. The record is brilliant though.
