Editorial Reviews

CD/DVD edition. After six years together, three full length albums, national and international tours with the likes of The Fray, Weezer, and Foo Fighters, and worldwide sales of over 400,000 units, Mae is moving forward in 2009 with a bolder sense of purpose - to use their music to make a difference in the world. (M)orning is the first of three in a trilogy of releases - (m)orning, (a)fternoon, and (e)vening. Now more than ever, with no restrictions, a fierce sense of independence, and the ability to redefine their own success, the band is writing and recording the most prolific songs of their career and influencing a generation of fans to make a positive difference in the world. (m)orning includes a bonus DVD featuring never before seen tour and behind-the-scenes footage, music videos, a documentary about the band's year long charity effort, and more. With the power of music and community, Mae continue to influence and inspire people around the world to become the change they want to see in the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly an Older Mae, for Both Better and Worse October 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Mae has gone through a lot of changes off the stage since their last release Singularity, and the sound of (m)orning certainly reflects that. What's presented here is a stripped-down sound, much more intimate but also at times tentative and awkward.

The EP is sandwiched between two instrumental tracks, "Good M(o)rning" and "(M)orning Drive." (I haven't bothered to figure out what the deal is with the () in the titles). Neither song for me is very memorable, they're both prog-inspired jaunts with some light guitar, synth work, and liberal use of fade effects. I think the album is no better or worse off due to their inclusion.

The Fisherman Song opens up the disc with a lengthy 8:39 run time, and I think encapsulates the idea of the compositions to follow rather nicely. It starts off soft and slowly builds up into a full-on rock breakdown for the last couple of minutes. Telling a very personal story of where the band has been since Singularity, it's a wonderful tune that takes the listener for a ride.

The next song "The House that Fire Built" is more perplexing. Another long tune at over seven minutes, the song is full of familiar Mae rock themes, but it meanders long past what I would deem enjoyable to listen to and gets close to prog rock territory, somewhere I don't see Mae meant to journey to. The outro alone is ninety seconds of nearly dead air leading into the next song.

"Boomerang" is full of classic Mae vibes. It's light, a little funky, and enjoyable to listen to. The problem is that Boomerang is merely an ok song, like something that was left over from the Singularity sessions.

"Two Birds" is the surprising track on the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mae continues to amaze September 28, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
I've been a Mae fan for about a year, and I've been eagerly anticipating this EP. I wasn't sure how it would be since most people consider their best work already completed, but this album is amazing. The songs flow together seamlessly. This album still has that experimental sound to it that might keep the mass crowds away, but Mae stayed true to their style while still branching away from their previous work. I love this EP!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breadth and Depth February 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mae continues to demonstrate the breadth and depth of their musical repertoire. On their own without a major label and the restrictions that brings, they have unleashed their creativity and produced some longer compositions that explore their music more fully. Two notables, both musically and in their message, are "The House That Fire Built" which lays out the band's vision for doing something more with their lives and challenging the listeners to do the same, and "Night/Day" in which the music and lyrics match incredibly from a slow, fuzzy waking up through a build-up leading to a powerful exclamation to take control of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fisherman Song sets the tone imo September 22, 2009
By Lee
Format:MP3 Music
Saw Mae in concert in SLC for the (M)orning tour - had no idea what to expect. I saw Mae in concert for the Everglow tour, LOVED Everglow, then bought both Destinations and was continually amazed. Like Singularity a lot, but it wasn't the amazing cd that Everglow was. And then the keyboardist left - woah! The guy that played that 2nd cut on Everglow...not sure I was going to like (M)orning.

Yeah, I love Mae! (M)orning is amazing. I'm still discovering it. The concert was powerful. The words are powerful and full. I'm in my 40's, took my 17 year old son with one of his friends and we all were blown away, listening to the all Mae, including (M)orning cd, all the way home to Boise (6 hours).

Mae never left, things change, Mae evolves...grows...matures...breathes...I think I'll go listen to Fisherman Song again and remember...

5.0 out of 5 stars Musicians,Artists,Entertainers May 15, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I am no genius but I assume that since the first album in this series (M)orning was followed by (A)fternoon that the next album willbe called (E)vening.And the letters in the parentheses will spell MAE. HOW special.I do love this band.
