definately their best cd yet. they have matured a lot since their previous two cds and i was not disappointed by this album. i bought it the day it came out and did not regret it.

the songs are catchy and clever. they can also be sarcastic and ironic. but hey, it's relient k. what would you expect?

my fav songs:
forward motion (a clever takeoff on bouncing off the walls by sugarcult yucky group)
trademark (great guitar lines)
end to end (just a good feeling to it)
jefferson aero plane (catchy tune, easy to sing to)

First, let me just say Relient K. is my favorite band, I've been to a couple of their concerts, and both were a blast. I really like their new CD, but I must say that spiritually, Anatomy beats this one. Musically, this is the best yet, but spiritually, for right now, Anatomy would have to be my favorite. Not saying I don't like the CD or anything, I have most of the songs memorized, but yeah, that's what I have to say.

Yeah, this is my favorite band. Relient k rocks. I am a super RK fan. Yup.
This album is great. They did some new stuff that they haven't done before, more minor keys, a little slower/mellower. Maybe they were running out of ideas and were looking for something new. i don't know...

I was rather disappointed. This wasn't nearly as good as Tongue and Cheek. Chapped Lips Chap Stick and Things Like Chemistry, Mood Rings, In Love With the 80s, and a couple others were excellent songs, but as a whole, the CD was just not up to par with their last one. Nothing on here was as fun to sing along with as Sadie Hawkins Dance, and none of them reached out and grabbed me like For the Moments I Feel Faint.

Well, I have to disagree with that. I love i am understood? for that exact reason. I think we all can relate to that song. Or maybe it's just me...

This is probably Relient K's most creative album to date. Some people have complained that they don't talk about God enough (they only metion his name twice on the whole disc), but there are Christian values mentioned throughout most of the lyrics( "In Love with the 80's" and "Gibberish" being some of the obvious exceptions) and simply show the cleverness of Thiessen's writing. The band, musically, continues to arrange clever melodies and the instruments feel very tight and flow well together. My only complaint is that the vocal harmonies aren't as...well...vocal as in their last record and the bassist doesn't have the "kick" he use to either. In conclusion, if you're an avid RK fan or are just looking for some good pop/punk rock, you should definately check out this CD.

relient k's new cd

i found that this new cd is a great cd to have for your collection of relient k cds. this is probibly my favorite of all the christian artists. i do have to say though that they have been a little unclear about god as in their other cds, but even though i do believe that they have gotten their message across. i love the songs falling out, forward motion (except the fact that the verses sound like stupid shugercult) , i am understood?, and getting into you. the lirics are amazing and you can deff. see the love they have for God. and of course they are able to put those songs that are fun to listen to; mood rings, in love with the 80s, and collage kids. you can deff. see their talent excell in their last few cds. so i deff. recomend this cd to any christian who loves the sound of punk music.

p.s. could someone please tell me what the whole "chapstick chaplips and things like chemisty is all about?

THUMBS UP BABE!

I LOVE this CD. I think they have matured a lot since their last album. I love both of them. (the anatomy a little bit more, but I think it's just because I almost killed Two Lefts by listening to it so much, and I just purchased The Anatomy...). I Am Understood has REALLY touched me. I most definitely give Two Lefts Don't Make a Right...But Three Do a NUMBA TEN!!
