The Everglow

Release Date: March 29, 2005

In 2004, Mae followed up their 2003 debut with a B-sides collection that functioned as a striking improvement over its predecessor, denouncing critiques that releasing a B-sides album so early in a career should be perfunctory or self-indulgent. The idea that Mae would then release yet another album in 2005 pointed either to a band squeezing themselves dry far too quickly or to a band growing up so fast that they overflowed with creativity. Proving the latter to be true, The Everglow arrived as a piano-laden emo rock album that was wiser, more mature, and more beautiful than the output of nearly all of Mae's contemporaries; The Everglow could make you rock out, sing along, cry, or contemplate, all within the stretch of one hour of perfectly composed midtempo alternative music that both Warped Tour kids and their parents could enjoy. This depth and range, buttressed by ageless production and beautiful album artwork, has made The Everglow a timeless record, standing tall as the best Christian release of 2005 amidst very strong competition.
        - Chase Tremaine

This is easily one of the best albums released in the Christian market. It's one of the best albums ever made period. (Yeah, I said it.) I didn't like Mae prior to The Everglow, but decided to get the album at release after gaining an appreciation for them at a live show. This was a decision I'll never regret. Beautiful, emotional, and flat out rocking at times. There was really no other option for 2005.
