Mae started out as just a studio band and has now blossomed into a full-time project with a decent fan-base. After a positive response following their first release Mae felt that the things left off Destination: Beautiful should be heard. With that in mind, Mae guides you through the side roads of Destination: Beautiful and gives you Destination: B-sides.
The new songs on this album provide for many of the highlights. This disc features the song Tisbury Lane that was available for download sometime ago. There is also a live version of the song Futuro, which is a non-vocal track. This track captures the essence of Mae’s electronic ability. Awakening the 5th track is a tune with sweet piano compositions that works its way through your senses as it moves. While Awakening shows the soft and subtle side of Mae, the 2nd track, Suspension is filled with the pop sensibilities that Mae is also known for.
The remixed tracks on this disc are all well crafted and they each have a great sound that is all their own. The acoustic version of Sun, sounds like it is straight from an MTV Unplugged Album. Although these tracks are each decent, they are unfortunately just being recycled. The songs Sun and This is the Last Time both have two different versions each. Then you add new versions of Giving It Away and Goodbye, Goodnight and you are left with the four new tracks. This leaves the listener hopeful for the new Mae stuff, and yet having to be content with the remixes of the old tracks.
This CD is a good release but over half of it has been heard before on Destination: Beautiful. However, I will use lyrics from the song Suspension on this disc to sum up my thoughts. “It’s enough for me to get excited.”
