4.5 superbAdam Knott EMERITUS | December 8th 09

Mae's 2005 masterpiece is perfectly named, as over the course of 13 tracks they deliver a pop-rock record so heavy with the weight of emotion and such undeniably euphoria that as the album nears its climax it feels like the musical embodiment of love going on and on and on. There's not a single track without a role to play, but the greatest thing about The Everglow is that it doesn't feel like it's constructed, just like it's conceived. With a plot grounded in reality, it really is one hell of a concept album executed around momentous guitars, tender pianos and the passionate vocals of Dave Elkin. It slows, speeds off and always feels immaculate, and when the title track swings around and the record peaks, it's tough to keep it all together. If you don't invest in the concept presented, this is still an excellent record, but with the weight of the storyline and the stunning presentation of the album as a whole, The Everglow becomes so close to perfect that its name almost begins to apply to the music itself. Amazing.

5.0 classicBrushedRed | July 11th 12

One of the most, if not the most, uplifting album around. This is a concept album describing a man's life and his search for "The Everglow". This album is one experience that cannot be described, but instead must be experienced for oneself. Each song flows into the next, making this album most powerful when listened to as a whole. The songs are beautiful, musically and lyrically. It's smooth, accessible, and catchy. This is the epitome of a perfect album. Recommended for everyone, even casual listeners can find something great in this album.

5.0 classicAlexander | January 30th 12

The Everglow is so choked up in emotions that there shouldn't be something in you that moves in your from the sheer heart it's body pours out. Cleverly played in a story format, the record carries you through a 15 track powerhouse that tell of different tales of love, loss, rejuvenation, and connection. And if you doubt, from the opening piano ballad of 'We're So Far Away' to the explosiveness of 'Painless' and the intense climatic buildup of 'Breakdown', yes Mae has the musical chops to back up the very intricate and compelling album. Highly recommended.

While Mae writes some very meaningful and moving lyrics on the album, the music is not to that point. The vocals became monotonous to listen to and instrumentally, the album was interesting up to a point.

5.0 classicMercilessBat | May 22nd 13

I grew up with this album. Over the years I've gotten to appreciate the album a lot more. About 95% of the music on here is amazing. Simply breathtaking.

5.0 classicMicah-Nahum Ferguson is reading again. | November 5th 12

Jimmy Eat World can bite the dust. Mae creates what may be the quintessential pop-rock album. The continuity throughout the songs is clear despite no two of them sounding the same. Dave Elkin's vocals are nowhere near perfect but have a certain boyish tone to them that is to the album's benefit. His guitar is so complex for the genre it cannot go unnoticed. All the catchy melodies work together and form a timeless album.

Driving to work and need something soothing? Stressing over some bitch who thought you weren't worth her time? Kick back, crank up the volume on your speakers/headphones, and let Mae take care of everything. You will feel better because this is The Everglow, and that's just the effect it has.

0.0 Richard Dunn | February 1st 11

This entire album is what love would sound like in musical form. It is when everything fits into place and life is beautiful. It is when you go outside and the trees look beautiful, and there is a god and he loves you. This album is about that feeling. A specific feeling that cannot be brought on by any other album. The feeling is called the Everglow. Just let go and fall into it.

Mae's best album is a conglomoration of what is good about Mae and it slightly separates them from the drones of pop-rock bands. The title track is very impressive.

4.0 excellentKyle Hallman | May 29th 08

Beautiful peaceful yet retains a very great energy. The wondrous lyrics of spiritual imagery and love help make it the album is it.
Best tracks: We're so far away, suspension, Ready and waiting to fall, The sun and the moon, and mistakes we knew we were making. But the entire album holds itself together quite well.
