This is definitely Relient K's best work so far. The album as a whole has more substance and maturity than the previous albums, the music is tight and Matt's voice is better than ever. No complaints here, this is my favourite cd at the moment, and is going to be hard to beat!

Ack really? I didn't really care for it because he does the growlish sort of aggravated voice thing... its really strange... I like his voice on the other cds... but I love Let It All Out.

hey, just to clarify, that's the lead vocalist from The Showdown, not Matt. I thought that was a new way that RK was trying to give thier sound a little more edge to it, but your right, at first listen i thought that Matt had taken some hardcore lessons.

Awesome cd. Like most cd's of excellence, this one hit me at first listen and kept growing on me. Better that "Two Lefts..." maybe lyrically, and i'm still trying to decide if i like it better than "anatomy" (always one of my favorites) but still a very strong cd, both musically and lyrically. I really like the addition of the piano in the mix and "Let it all out" is just amazing.

And have you ever actually SEEN them live? I saw them at a concert that was being run by Newsong, and they were only allowed to play three songs. That short set was by FAR the highlight of the evening, even beating out Audio A. Really, I fail to see any of your points whatsoever.

Dude, i am totally agreeing with you. I dunno who this Epaphrus weirdo is but i'd have to say that if i ever saw him face to face and knew him to be "epaphrus" i would have to use some unhappy words. relient k is totally my favorite band and i'd have to agree with that jonathon dude who wrote in one of the earlier reviews above, too. he had my thoughts down pat.

I was amzed by this cd in more than one way. The guitars are excellent, but for the first time, there is true emotion in the lyrics. Matt is truy singing from his soul now, and it shows, personal experiences, anger, sadness, it all shines on this record, I give it a 9.

Anyhow, I give this Cd an 8. It has been in my CD player for days. I have not heard a Christian CD this solid since The Beautiful Letdown.

Hmm... I spoke a bit soon. I have decided that the CD is not as solid as my initial impression, mostly because a few of the songs have become severely annoying to me. Like... the beginning of "I So Hate Consequences". Ugh. I'd give it a 7, because there are a few songs I absolutely love.

THis is the most desgusting cd I have heard in my life.
Just kidding. This is the awesomest CD EVER. Relient K has had some awesome CD's, but I think what makes this CD so much better is the fact that they seem to be more serious than before, and they seem more sincere.
