Blah. I miss old school Relient K. Good acoustic work on this album, but Matt T.'s voice is just so...blah. I don't like the vocals on this album at all. They sound more whiney than normal.

This is a great ep...I only listen to the acoustic version of Overthinking now. It sounds so much better with the piano and Matt's tweaking of the vocals. I give it a nine, only because The Thief isn't really that great.

I actually think The Theif is one of the better tracks. Along with In Like A Lion.

I found most of the cd... unninspired. Over Thinking and Apathetic Way To Be the exceptions. 6

I like this album pretty well. I gave it an 8. It was a refreshing change of pace from Mmhmm, included a nod to the band's earlier album "Two Lefts...", and showed a forward progression for the band.

1. The Truth -- I really like this song. It acts as a good opener for the cd.

2. Apathetic Way to Be -- This, surprisingly, is actually my least favorite track from the album. The intro sounds to the previous track (although to be fair, this one was likely written first.) It sounds like a b-side from Mmhmm, which it should...because it is.

3. Be My Escape (acoustic) -- While "Be My Escape" has never been a personal favorite of mine, the mandolin and toned down feeling was an excellent variation.

4. Which to Bury, Us or the Hatchet? (acoustic) -- I greatly prefer this version to the original. If only it had the extended ending as on Mmhmm!

5. Over Thinking (acoustic) -- A more mature sound than the original, this is one of the highlights, if not the very best, in my opinion.

6. In Like a Lion (Always Winter) -- Inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, a rather calm song. I like it, although to me it seems seasonal. I can't really enjoy it as much during summer.

7. The Thief -- Originally this was listed as being by Matthew Thiessen and the Earthquakes, the side project of Relient K's frontman Matt Thiessen. A short song which tells of love lost, this one will probably only be remembered by the most dedicated listeners.

i've gotten so many different stories.

but, the truth is by far my favorite one on this ep.

EP stands for Extended play(I think) And my favorite song on Apathetic EP would also have to be the truth

The Truth and Apathetic Way to Be are both worthy of being on a regular cd.
The acoustic versions were nice, but I didn't really care for the last two.
8.
