ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mesculine (2001) State Of Enchantment's 'new millenium' album points to the future of this durable group, while also celebrating its long musical journey through past work.

An enduring force at the forefront of Progressive Music, S*O*E (driven by the expansive songwriting and inimitable guitar style of Spensser Haynes) continues to surprise and delight, beginning with ... country?

Where did that first song, "Going Away", come from? "Mesculine" includes a booklet with notes on each song.

Long-time fans will remember the intimate conversations that preceeded each song on the "With Love" album, and how that listening experience was like a warm visit with a good friend.

"Mesculine" brings you back to the happy family gathering at 'Uncle Spen's' house.

It Rocks, of course ~ S*O*E always Rocks! It Rocks you Cozmik and Bluzy like you want 'em! Oh, Baaay-bee! But like family, there's more to it than just another bunch of people partying.

It's personal.

You Know these people, they've been with you for years, lifting you up in the early days, keeping you alfoat when times were hard.

"Mesculine" revisits the 'salad days', those times when we were all young and free, not yet having found ourselves and built up our lives and lifestyles.

Back then, salad was a couple of leaves of iceberg lettuce and a slice of tomato on a cheeseburger, when we could afford one (they called it a 'California burger'!).

We drove old cars we could fix ourselves (mostly because we had to - couldn't afford mechanics).

Things are different now: we've grown and experienced, and our lives have gone in a few unforeseen directions, but our lives have become our own. We've grown more comfortable in our skins.

These days, salad is more likely to be some favorite admixture of tender raddichio and romaine, chicory and spinach and watercress leaves, and it's a separate dish now.

Check it out: Here is more than 80 minutes of music, waiting for you to push back the furniture and kick off your shoes.

You'll hear 'Places In Between' and 'Change', two intelligent pop tunes that can still say something while delighting you with melody and sound.

You'll have the best album for dancing, or just moving to the beat, in years!Including 'The Bog Song' (a favorite from the early days in California), and 'I Wanna Go Dancing' (yes, their big club hit song is finally released here!), and the incredible new track 'Un-de-de' which will make your body feel so warm and sweet.

Turn it Up! Play it Loud! You Can stay young forever! "Mesculine" follows the 1998 release of "New Vision Café".

The group have also released "Sweet Daddy's Back" in 1995, "Diogenes" in 1993, "With Love" and "Hard Blue Night" in 1991, and "Live Studio" in 1990. "With Love" and "Live Studio" were reissued in 1998 following "New Vision Café".

"New Vision Café" is still available.

All other titles have sold out, and are not currently available. "Sweet Daddy's Back" is planned for reissue in 2001. Visit the website for more information and special items!

Joe

a really good album
I listened to the freesamples, it's like Steely Dan, but with a very listenable sound like nothing else. It has extra tracks you can get online. Very well thought out and worth buying. Keep it coming.

A Very Good CD
This has good songs, like Daan-cin! and Places In Between and You Can Win. Mr. Blue and the Scene tell great stories. I\'m glad I have this one.

Nemo (Chris Nemow)

former roadie/guitar tech
Everyone should have some S.O.E in their collections. Many people don’t know this group have always been outsiders. They never fit into the music business, and met a lot of resistance. They became independents because they had no choice! Now, everybody is independent, and the big corporations are trying to look like independents, and there’s S.O.E, still doing it. None of this is on their website. I’ve seen them 10 or 12 times and they put on an amazing show. Spencer is a funny and nice guy, and while it’s easy to see
they have strong views about things, their shows are always lighthearted. The band members change, but they are always excellent musicians and great on stage. There’s a fantastic song called Sailing Shoes which has not been recorded which they almost always play near the end. This is a band that could have been one of the all-time greats
but will only be a footnote in musical history.

messin wit my head
rave, demonic angels. not dark like before but so intense. more reality in your kingdom now but musically so out there still -- the vocals are so much, the words are real, the music MUST BE PLAYED LOUD to open the portal into the state. must let it drive me to work now..
