What I've heard of it, It sounds better than MMHHMM (My least favorite RK LP).

All of my friends own it. What do you think?

I like it; though "I'm Taking You With Me" and "Bite My Tongue" aren't too outstanding.

As far as I know, you have to buy it on iTunes to get the bonus track. You also have to buy the whole album on iTunes to get it, so if you already have the disc, don't bother. Its not a very good bonus track, anyway. EDIT: I just found out that the bonus track is a cover of a Beach Boys song. I still don't like it that much.

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

I give the album a 8/10. I think it's about at the same level of MmHmm. These are all my personal ratings of the songs.

Quote:
1. Pleading the Fifth (A Cappella)
This short track is pretty amazing. 10/10

Quote:
2. Come Right Out and Say It
A decent song, nothing too spectacular yet decently enjoyable. 7/10

Quote:
3. I Need You
Quite a good song. Perhaps a little too harsh for me, but a well written song non-the-less. 9/10

Quote:
4. The Best Thing
Personally, I think this song is the weakest song on the album. 6/10

Quote:
5. Forgiven
Quite a good song. The piano gets a little repeatitious (at least to me), but still enjoyable. 8/10

Quote:
6. Must Have Done Something Right
A pretty good song. I personally don't like the lyrics, being as all good things come from God, and nothing that one does is good enough to make them deserving of something good, but the song is not too bad. 7/10

Quote:
7. Give Until There's Nothing Left
I personally really like this song. The transition from the bridge back to the chorus is well written. 8/10

Quote:
8. Devastation and Reform
My favorite song on the album. 10/10

Quote:
9. I'm Taking You With Me
Not a bad song at all. 8/10

Quote:
10. Faking My Own Suicide
A decent song, but it gets a old after listening to it a lot. 7/10

Quote:
11. Crayons Can Melt On Us for All I Care
A perfect track for a Relient K cd. 10/10

Quote:
12. Bite My Tongue
A lot of people seem to dislike this song. I personally find it quite enjoyable. 9/10

Quote:
13. Up and Up
A pretty good song. There's not really anything that makes this song stand out, but it's enjoyable non-the-less. 8/10

Quote:
14. Deathbed
This is my second favorite song on the album. 10/10

I think this new album is leaps about bounds better than MMHMM, Anatomy, etc. I'm officially a new RK fan now because of "Five Score".

"Come Right Out And Say It" and "The Best Thing" are probably my 2 least favorites of the album, but both are decent nonetheless. "Up and Up" isn't really special, it's OK.

The rest of the album I love, especially the catchy intro riff on "Devastation and Reform".

I think the CD is amazing but what effect do they use on the intro of "Bite My Toungue?"

Great CD - finally something that mixes Relient K's excellent songwriting (and rhyming) skills along wither their excellent musicianship, and yet holds back on the pointless junk and delves into more serious fare. "I Need You" has a great pounding verse and very, very, cool background vocals in the chorus, 'Give' is beautifully done, and 'Come Right Out and Say It' is just cool. My favorite song though is 'Bite My Tongue’; sure the verses kind of stink, but the chorus and intro make up for it.
