Each vinyl record will be painstakingly cut by hand on a very high end custom lathe. This process takes time as each record is literally being cut direct from the original master audio onto the vinyl second by second. There will be no drop off of fidelity from one record to the next like in a mass pressing situation where the master "plate" that was created from the master audio gets worn down (degraded) towards the end of the run. Each vinyl record cut by hand will have it's own characteristics as far as what elements of the dynamics are accentuated. This makes each album unique unto itself. Each album will have the same quality standards and the music will be the music but when you hand craft each of them individually, one may have a little more love in the mid frequencies and the next one may have a little more love captured in the low end etc...Most folks wouldn't notice the nuances but those with higher end audiophile systems could.
All of them will sound fantastic but this element makes your record, your record, unlike any other that will be crafted.

Formed from the first letter from each member's last name, M.A.P. also puts forth the musical concept of finding one's way to God and the path that Jesus created to travel it. The album cover (designed by Rick's daughter Taylor Mals) illustrates that no matter where you are, the Lord Jesus can be sought after and you can be found.
Knowing where you are in relation to a Holy God needs to be dealt with by both believers and non-believers alike. For the believer scripture paints the perfect path for God centered biblical understanding and the wisdom that comes from it. For the non-believer it's usually left up to thinking that just being a good person will make your soul worthy of what a Holy and righteous God desires.
