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...
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.Read more ›
