Mae

Singularity

Capitol 58112

Released on August 14, 2007

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


The Virginia Beach-based five-piece have developed a unique and affecting sound that, with albums like 2003’s ‘Destination: Beautiful’ and 2005’s ‘The Everglow’, has scored them a rather sizeable following around the world. ‘Singularity’ is a far more rocking affair, as evidenced by its first single, “Sometimes I Can’t Make It Alone,” a brawny blast that recalls some of the seminal alternative groups that the members of Mae grew up listening to. “We’ve always loved bands like Pearl Jam, U2 and the Smashing Pumpkins and on this record we wanted to tap into that,” Marshall says. “We weren’t trying to recreate a ’90s record, per se, but we definitely wanted it to have that same energy.” Yet, where ‘Singularity’ contains some of the most energetic and aggressive music that Mae have recorded, it’s also an incredibly thought-provoking album, filled with the kind of questions that many ask when trying to seek out their place in the world. Indeed, throughout ‘Singularity’, the members of Mae may get into some rather heady material, but more than anything, this is an album that aims to connect with its listeners and maybe even encourage them to crank up the volume just a bit. “That’s all we were looking to do with this band,” Elkins says in closing. “We’re not worried about being considered an ‘emo band’ or an ‘indie band.’ We’re just a rock band, and we’re happy to be given the chance to get our music out there to all of these different people.”

Mae's third album "Singularity" and first debut on a major record label had a lot to follow after their absolutely amazing album "The Everglow." Unfortunately, their major record debut didn't live up "The Everglow." "Singularity" did show the band progressing and growing up. Songs to listen to are "Brink of Distaster," "Sometimes I Can't Make It Alone" and "Sic Semper Tyrannis" also known as SST. Overall a great album, just didn't have as much pomp and circumstance as their previous album.

In my opinion, mae's best to date. I have been a fan for quite some time, and I keep reading comments of old fans saying that they miss the "old sound." Mae does indeed sound different on Singularity, but in no way is it for the worse. I hate it when a new album is deemed more "mature" for a band, but that's one of the only ways to describe it. There are better vocals and more thought in the lyrics. The hardness of Destination: Beautiful is gone. As always with mae, there is a blatant theme to the CD, but I find it more subtle than what they did with The Everglow. So I say to the old fans, they've grown, maybe you should, too! Listen to the album as a whole, and then make your decision. To non-fans, I say listen and you'll be amazed, even if you haven't heard anything by them before.
