Love the CD! I give it a 9. Not as good as "Two Lefts..." but They're getting into a bit of a different style and the guitar parts are way better (especially on "Devistation and Reform"). Yeah. Great album. Love RK.

This is a good CD from Relient K. I gave it an 8 because I gave MMHMM a 9, and I think this one is just below MMHMM both musically and in some cases better lyrically. I don't understand why most people don't like "The Best Thing." I think that's one of the better songs on the album. My two favorite tracks however, are Devastation and Reform and Bite My Tongue.

This is a great CD, it would have to be my favourite cd overall so far. (this could be because I'v just heard all their other songs to much and are starting to get boring) but i also like the new style.
I really like deathbed and bite my tongue

Yeah, originally I was one of 'The Best Thing' haters, but for some reason, I think its one of the best songs on the album now...despite the yawn-inducing music video.

Bleh, the Best Thing doesn't do anything for me.

I think that Five Score is WAY too much pop for me to handle. Sure it's catchy, but RK displayed crunchiness and catchiness on mmhmm to great results. But as always, it's still a good album from the RK boys with 2 too many tracks about bubbly love.

Forgiven is an amazing song, as is Deathbed. I always chuckle when I listen to Faking My Own Suicide, but it gets old, and Must Have Done Something Right is as catchy as heck, but the music video is better. The Best Thing and Taking You With Me as well as Up and Up are songs that disturb the overall quality of the album with their fluffy choruses and poppy anthems.

Odd - apparently I voted but I haven't posted in here. Hopefully I gave it a 7 or 8.

In some ways it's not as good as MmmHmm, but there's more musical diversity for one thing. The only song I don't like and always skip is "Must Have Done Something". The lyrics are cliche (although at least they sort of admit so) and the music is pretty bland.

Other than that I love it. My favorite songs are "I Need You", "Devastation and Reform", "Faking My Own Suicide" and "Deathbed". The last one pretty amazing in how it's 11 minutes long and doesn't really drag on.

I also love how it says in the insert that Matt T. plays like 10 instruments on this CD.

When you call anything with harsh vocals "screamo", it makes as much sense as calling anything with distorted guitar "heavy metal".

Whatever number you voted should be italicized.

This is probably my favorite RK album thusfar, and I have all of them.
Thanks, for the advice...

I gave it a 9. Very very good album except I didn't like up and up that much, but other than that it was perfect!!!
