Andy Waltzer Every new Max Eider recording is a rare treat- the wit, the sweet melodies, and the layers that lurk beneath the surface. Often the sweetness has a bitter truth underneath, and the combination is irresistible. It's like drinking a cocktail so sweet you don't realize the alcohol....until you do.

James Duval Mr. Maximilian Theodore Eider III is an absolute essential for any music lover. My favorite guitarist in the world is back and still making music!! With his exceptionally unique, smooth, clean and jazzy style, this track is certainly no exception! Tell me, please, because Max and I would like to know....when will the meek truly inherit the earth?!

Mercy to the merciful, joy to the forlorn
Love the one that hates you, and comfort those who mourn
You say the poor own heaven – for what that's worth
Just tell me when will the meek inherit?

I try not to be angry but now and then I fail
And over adultery we'd better draw a discreet veil
I've been searching for the righteous but there seems to be a dearth
So tell me when will the meek inherit?

For they're still waiting
The meek and the poor
Will they be waiting
Two thousand years more?

Wealth is a motive but power is the prize
What else might have a bearing on who'll sink and who will rise?
Pride and arrogance, ambition, connections and birth
You know I don't think the meek will inherit this earth
