i cant say that i was impressed with this album....the songs are fun, but they have little focus on God. the first album had much more christian lyrics. they are still a good band, and put on an awesome live show. the most hardcore moshing i've ever seen was durin sadie hawkins dance...

I love this CD, Relient K is an awesome band. I love the randomness of some of thier songs such as "May the Horse be With You", "Maybe it's Maybelline", and then i love the song "For the Moments I Feel Faint", such a great song with such amazing lyrics. This is an awesome CD!

Posted on 01-25-2004 by ChozenChick
This is one of their best albums!! I love "For the Moments I feel faint"... Still can't get it on my acoustic tho :rolleyes: . "Pressing On" is great and the Kickoff and Sadie Hawkins Dance are classics :) .

meh...a half dozen good songs.....pressin on, sadie hawkins dance, failure to ex-communicate, and a few more....gets 6

THIS CD IS BY FAR ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!!!!! Sadie Hawkins Dance is one of my favorites, as well as For the Moments I Feel Faint, Pressing On, and Wake Up Call. But my all tiem favorite is *drumroll* SKITTLES AND COMBOS!!! I sing it to my siblings when they annoy me. They hate it when I sing, because I sing it in a different key, and so the high-pitched part is WAY out of my range, and so it's all squeeky and weird sounding. Theys top whatever they were doing just so I'll stop singing. I know, I'm such a cruel sister...

Posted on 02-26-2005 by Timberwolf
I give it a 10 definetly there best CD,besides Mmhmm.

[QUOTE=FronzelNeekburm]spiffyness: i just heard sadie hawkins dance on Smallville (a tv show). it was really cool!!

So did I!! It was totally awesome! I got like really excited and my family was telling me to shut up so they could hear the actors talking. :)

I think Relient K is AWESOME! Its pretty cool that I match up with Matt Hoopes because I think he's HOT! The questions on that are so funny!

Are you sure you didn't mean Matt Theissen? Not Matt Hoopes?

[QUOTE=sarahP10]i think relient k is one of the best christian bands out there! i have all their cd's and i haven't decided which one's my fave yet though anatomy of the tongue in cheek is one of the best! oh and does this cd have a hidden track? if so, could anyone tell me where?[/QUOTE]


It has a hidden track on the end after the last song let the cd player keep running for a few minutes and it will come on. It's called "Skittles and Combos"

Posted on 03-02-2005 by Unregisted

Again, another awsome rk cd. almost every relient k fan i know says sadie hawkins dance is their fave sone and it is mine on this cd, but not my fave rk song. i luve pressing on and i'm lion-o, also

Posted on 03-08-2006 by jonmains89
I have never liked Relient K.. i dont know why, but for some reason it jsu annoys me...meh.. to each his own i guess.

Posted on 03-12-2004 by boredman555
its a tight cd, i have a burnt one with a few extra songs, but it's way cool. my favorites are 2,4,5,7,8,10,12,13,15, and 16, which is practically the whole cd, that's why i like it sooo much! if you don't like this cd, well that's your own problem, but in my opinion it rocks, because I love Christian Alternative!

Posted on 03-14-2004 by BereanatHeart
I'm not really a fan of RK but this is by far their best cd! :yep:

Posted on 03-14-2004 by Mathaytace ><>
haha, this was my first RK cd. Two Lefts was my second.

I have yet to get my hands on RK.....

but, I like it, enjoyable, I am not sure I like it too much better than Two Lefts, but it is good.

I really like the solo on Lion-O

Posted on 03-17-2005 by DavidFrank
Have had this cd for a couple of months now, and I gave it a 9, cause I think it is GREAT!

Started out with "2 Lefts and Deck", then got "MhMM" to celebrate Jesus's birth, then got "Anatomy", then "Rk"...... OKAY, so we went backwards, but I think that "Anatomy" is probably my family and my favorite.....we listen to it everysingleday so, if we don't like it, we know it well.

Learned "For times I feel faint" with chord help from CGR (of course, where else?) and also think "Down in flames" , "Pressing On", "Maybe.... You get the picture, are fantastic songs.

I like my Godrock heavy on the God and heavy on the rock, so these guys and this cd fit that bill.

Take Care

this was the first cd i got by rk,i think it rocks,though i could've done without the fillers,but that's just my opinion,i don't have their 1st cd but this is so far my favorite :)

Posted on 04-04-2005 by 4 The Lord
We don't even have to deliberate about this one. Or any of RK's Cd's. BUY THEM ALL!!!

In Christ,

:cool: [SIZE=4]THAT CD ROCKS[/SIZE] :cool:

Posted on 05-08-2003 by punker15
i think this cd ties with "two lefts don't make a right... but three do".

this is truly punk/pop at its best!

Posted on 06-08-2005 by Unregisted
One of my favourite bands. I love 'Failure to Excommunicate' . Buy this album, it's good. 8.

Posted on 06-10-2002 by Dr. Doom
this cd is great! not everyone may like the style of music but the wrods are fabulous. i think everyone would like For The Moment I Feel Faint.

Posted on 06-10-2002 by spiffyness
ya i love that song!! i like all the songs on the CD. specially Skittles and Combos!!!

Posted on 06-10-2002 by SoccerAaron
Ya it's awesome!
I liked "sadie hawkins dance"
"pressing on" and "maybe it's maybeline"
the most.( I think :D )

Posted on 06-12-2003 by themouse
i love relient k and all their cd's. they are an awesome band. :thumbsup:

Posted on 06-15-2002 by Mugga Please
not alot of bands will give u 17 songs....event tho like 3 of em are 'cheap'...but so what. this is a awesome cd...a bit better then their first one...but their both kinda different in their own way. this cd has a lot of variety between their songs...you got softer ones 'moments i feel faint' and 'the rest is up to you' ...then you got the high kickin 'pressing on' and 'what have you been doin lately'. so overall.....thumbs up to an awesome cd

Posted on 06-15-2003 by flyboy86
Alright, until recently I only listened to secular music because I didn't really know of any good Christian bands until my friend told me about relient K and how good of a band they were. I went out to buy the CD (Anatomy) and on the first time listening to it I liked the band more than any band I have ever heard. Since then I went out and bought all the rest of their CD's and they are all awesome. I think this is the best one though. The lyrics are awesome and uplifting and they are really talented. They have a good mix of praise and crazy songs. I can't stop listening to the CD. I'm telling you, Relient K is the best band ever!!! So whoever you are, Christian or not you should but this CD because it is some quality music.

Posted on 06-20-2002 by SpaztikAshley
This is the best CD that I own. I bought it without every having heard them before but STILL ended up falling in love with it. Songs that speak the most to be, thereby deeming them favorite, are as follows:

My Way or the Highway
Failure to Excommunicate
What Have You Been Doing Lately (this is a completely awesome song, exquisitely written and I can totally identify with it)
Down in Flames

The whole album is really fun to listen to.

Posted on 06-21-2002 by StephanieDianne
This is a really fun CD. I liked it the first time I listened to it, which is a rare thing for me. My favorite song on there is Failure to Excommunicate.

Posted on 06-22-2003 by lizwrenne
much better than their first. this is when the clever writing really comes out (may the horse be with you...) great guitars, great drums, great voice. just not as good as two lefts

but still, buy it

reading over flyboy86's quote, i have the same story. relient k saved my life!

Posted on 06-25-2002 by archieK4JC
This is really a great CD. It's not like some pop/punk albums where every song sounds the same, there's a nice variety, from punk (Down in Flames) to rock (Failure to Excommunicate) & from silly (I'm Lion-O) to serious (For the Moments...). Anyway, it's a great CD, I definitely recommend you get it ASAP.:D :D :D

Ya this has a hidden track at the end. two lefts has one at the end of "jefferson aero plane." Mmhmm has a little hidden track thingy at the beginning. You have to rewind it a little. I'm not sure about the first CD they made "Relient k" but i don't think it has a hidden track....

yeh, actually, it does. it's wierd, lol. it starts out w/ like this hard rock jam, and then it switches to polka, it's pretty cool.

Im only a new christian and in accepting Christ, i have made really good friends and attained a whole new side to my CD collection. Im suprised that Christian music could be so good! Relient K is one of me favouritest bands now, and this album rocks real hard! I love every single song. Maybe it's maybelline gave me a real good laugh.
:spin:

Posted on 07-10-2002 by Dormin75
Yeah I agree. The style i excellently varied. They did a great job on this CD. I absolutely loved the first album too but this one is great as well. I too am a fan of Sadie Hawkins Dance and Down in Flames. Great band and they have alot of potential!
-God Bless

i just heard sadie hawkins dance on Smallville (a tv show). it was really cool!!

Posted on 07-17-2004 by twins_fan
I have Relient K's 3 studio albums and this is the best one.

Posted on 07-19-2002 by stellar9832
this cd is a very good cd. with good chord pergressions. the only thing i dont like about it, is that the band uses the "T". which is where 4 chords are played in the T shape on the fret board. they use it on Pressin On. and every punk band uses that. but overall, its a very good cd. personally i like "Those Words Are Not Enough" i can worship to that song. and i like Lion O. good cd.

Posted on 07-21-2004 by Brian-Alexander
i think its a good cd. Relient k rocks!

Posted on 07-22-2002 by Mr.Zachcore
i gave this cd an 8 mainly because of the vocals...i can listen to it for awhile but after a long time they get annoying great cd though relient k is great but i wouldnt clal em punk ,sorry guys. 8 8 8 8 8 8 8

Posted on 07-24-2004 by Unregisted
this cd, along with the newest are awesome. Someone said that it really didn't focus it's messages on God, and i really think that that person hasn't really listened to it. The albom is awesome, with awesome messages, and an example is "For The Moment I Feel Faint"... now that is a great song.

Jesus Saves

Posted on 07-27-2005 by fallinguprawks
rk's one of my favorite bands and i like all their cds, but this may be my favorite of theirs. if you like punk-rock, this is a must have. excellent music and lyrics.

[QUOTE=Dr. Doom]this cd is great! not everyone may like the style of music but the wrods are fabulous. i think everyone would like For The Moment I Feel Faint.[/QUOTE]
Dr. Doom is right.

This cd rocks fav songs are Pressing On, Sadie Hawkens Dance, Down in Flames, and For the Moments I feel Faint.

If you are a punk rock fan you have to check this one out.

Posted on 08-01-2002 by OneWithTheMud
When I first listened to it, I didn't like it much but it grew on me after a while. My favorite songs are Pressing On, Those Words Are Not Enough, For The Moments I Feel Faint, and probably some others that I can't think of right now.

Posted on 08-01-2003 by SallySue
I love this Cd! Relient K is awesome. It's so peppy and easy to listen to!

Posted on 08-07-2002 by shinemdm
Awesome cd! I've listened to that cd over and over and i never get bored with it. I absolutely cannot wait until their new cd comes out. Great music........pressing on, sadie hawkins dance, down in flames, for the moments, Lion O, May the Horse Be With You, and Less is More are my favorites. Relient K is the best christian band on the face of the earth.

Peace out,

Max

I love Pressing On!!

Posted on 08-18-2002 by SupaNova
Relient K really knows how to make good music. "Anatomy" is one of those albums you can listen to and not be bored by the last track. The music is varied from song to song, the guys even included an acoustic track (For the Moments I feel Faint) and a piano ballad (Less is More). "Anatomy" doesn't have the same raw feeling as their self-titled, but if you like good rock music then I highly recommend picking up this album.

Posted on 08-18-2002 by jarhead
Awesome album, I gave it an 8. There a few songs that I usually skip but overall a great cd. Shows a lot of growth from their first album, i mean c'mon, a piano ballad!!!!

Posted on 08-19-2002 by bethany0216..
I LOVE Relient K!! The best band ever! This band writes their own songs, plays their own instruments, sings the songs they write, they're hilarious, and really down-to-earth guys that never have a problem turning what they're doing (even if it's serious) it to something fun. That is a true band!! All of these songs are great! new album comes out spring 2003. if you like punk-rock, go get this!!!

Posted on 08-27-2004 by Islandrocker
RK is the one of the best Bands ever! i don't think ne one will argue with that. The Lyrics are hysterical and the music is awesome. Matty T and the guys r my fave! i would have 2 say Sadie Hawkins dance is one of my fave songs. Its the 1st on i learned to play on bass! so yeah. If u don't have ne RK cd's i suggest u go and get them. You'll love em!

Posted on 10-03-2007 by Relientk101

Posted on 10-17-2002 by Rachewe
I looooove RELIENT K! they are the BOMB. I can't think of another band i have liked better since I got their CD. I just wish they would come to NC more often...they like, NEVER do!!! i'm waitin' for the new Cd and for a concert in my area! hahaha!WOO!

the best song on the newest CD is "Pressin' On"

and the best on their first CD is probably "Hello McFly" -i think :)

Posted on 10-23-2004 by melz_rkfan

"Check out matt theissan on solo guitar, he's da bomb", ok sorry had to say that. Anywho, I live in NC and i have seen them once here, the horrible thing is that the back to the few tour isn't coming here. :nope: It really is quite sad

Posted on 11-04-2002 by jarhead
Yeah, that'd be good stuff

Posted on 11-04-2002 by shineN
uh, the songs name is "my girlfriend" and I saw them about two weeks ago, and they didn't play it either...
my guess is they're sick of it, and in my opinion they have written WAY better songs that that one, so just let them play those!

Posted on 11-04-2002 by shineN
Sorry, I forgot to give my review of "TAOTIC"
I love this cd, though it did take me a few listens before I really started enjoying this cd (for some reason, the christian bookstore puts new cds out the day before they're released...) so I got it the day before I should've... but I put it in and was like "whaaa?" but I stuck with it, and continued listening to it, and I think it's almost their best (I still like the first cd a little better, and I think the Creepy EP is so far the best!)
my favorite songs would be:
For the Moments
Less Is More
Sadie Hawkins (this seems to be the most favorite rk song)
Lion-O

oh, and M@ Theisson is a genius!

Posted on 12-02-2006 by heisouronlyhope
They just put out a new verstion of this Cd its "Anatomy in check and tongue GOLD CD" it got put out in stores in nov, but yeah its remixed and remaster'd.

Posted on 12-12-2002 by archieK4JC
This doesn't really deal with their CD, just some cool stuff for any Relient K fans out there...

If you haven't heard of the Gotee records street team, here's some basic info. Gotee Records is the record label for Relient K (of course) as well as some cool artists like Grits, John Reuben, Jeff Deyo, The Katinas, and others. The street team is responsible for spreading news about the artists, recruiting new members, etc. They send out a weekly newsletter updating you on things, it's pretty sweet. I definitely suggest that anyone who is interested in getting Relient K info, join the team. It's free, no commitments or anything, all you do is fill out some basic info & you're in, it's that easy. Every self-respecting Relient K fan shoud join. The link is:

[url]http://groups.msn.com/GoteeReps[/url]

So please check that out. One small request...if you join, where it says "how did you hear about the street team?" put Noah Guthrie ;) Thanks everyone!
