Biography

Sometimes the best way to deal with a break-up is to write a batch of great songs about it, turn up the amplifiers and just rock out.

Think of enduring classics – from Liz Phair’s Exile In Guyville to Nine Inch Nails’ Pretty Hate Machine to Beck’s Sea Change – and how they achieved musical catharsis from the crumbling walls and crossbeams of a relationship ... Read more in Amazon's Relient K Store

Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Christian Alt-Rockers. The stats speak for themselves: five full-length albums (three have been certified Gold), five EPs, a Christmas album, extensive touring, a string of radio hits, a Grammy nomination, two Dove awards, and TV appearances on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, just to name a few. Forget and Not Slow Down will add to the already impressive stat sheet. Blending though-provoking lyrics with the signature Relient K sound, this 2009 album will appeal to all the fans the band has gained over their 10 year career.

5.0 out of 5 stars F&NSD. Relient K doing what they do best. October 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The easiest way to say this is that Forget and Not Slow Down is essentially a break up album. For those of you who heard their less than perfect previous outing, Five Score and Seven Years Ago, the band took a complete one-eighty after recording a record that was essentially about being in love (i.e. "I always knew I'd find someone. I never dreamt it'd be like this, cause you've surpassed all that I'd hoped for and ever wished"). And it's common knowledge amongst the group's core fans that frontman Matt Thiessen went through a break-up with his ex-fiance before writing began; thus, it had a lot of impact on the new record. It's a sad record, it will make you think, it may even make you cry, but relient K shows that there is still hope and that moving on is possible. Relient K has always been known for their fun pop punk sound mixed with Thiessen's witty lyrics. But instead of a pop punk album, Relient K crafted a solid rock album chock full of their pop-minded hooks. Keep in mind this is also their first full-length without longtime drummer/vocalist, Dave Douglas; though last summer's The Nashville Tennis - EP is their first release without Douglas and first with new drummer Ethan Luck (Check out his old bands The O.C. Supertones and Demon Hunter for those not in tune...Heck, check out John Warne's Ace Troubleshooter while you're at it). Adding to the list of firsts, it is the band's first release on Gotee imprint, Mono vs. Stereo with distribution being handled by the folks at Jive (Relient K and Backstreet Boys are on the same label. Amazing.) The album is the band's most mature effort, sonically and lyrically. Gone is the straight pop punk sound found on albums like Mmhmm and Two Lefts Don't Make a Right... But Three Do, yet you may still find a couple pop culture references (i.e. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars great break up songs October 5, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Relient K has always been musically and lyrically witty and intelligent, and this new album is no exception. The album consists entirely of breakup songs, which I personally appreciate very much, as I recently went through a breakup. The music is fun and diverse while maintaining continuity and sticking to Relient K's signature style, and the lyrics are very insightful and thoughtful.

By JoeAZ92
Format:Audio CD
If you know anything at all about Relient K, you would certainly know about their witty and occasionally outlandish lyrics and punk rock-like sound. They've been about as innocent as can be all throughout their career, but never afraid to admit to personal faults and painful mistakes. The band's sixth and latest album, Forget and Not Slow Down, finds Matt Thiessen and the group in a very different place than they've ever been before, both musically and lyrically, for a record that's all about perspective... and making a sound as catchy as humanly possible.

I think it's only fair to get this fact out of the way before going any further: Forget and Not Slow Down is a breakup album. Apparently, Matt Thiessen (the band's lead singer) broke up with his fiancé sometime between when he wrote the band's previous record and this one. Many of the songs on Forget represent what he went through, so the context is certainly helpful in interpreting his lyrics. But what makes this album unique is that it's not about wallowing in self-pity for the pains of the breakup: it's all about perspective, and realizing that "Without you I'm still whole, you and life remain beautiful," and "If a nightmare ever does unfold, perspective is a lovely hand to hold."

What's also so fantastic about the album's lyrics is how they can easily apply to just about any rough situation in life. There are songs about moving on despite a shameful past ("Forget and Not Slow Down"), putting difficult issues in perspective ("Part Of It"), and realizing that pride is most likely the cause the fall ("Sahara").

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new single from a band that's been at it for years September 29, 2009
By Harpoon
Format:MP3 Music
This song is stuck in my head. I never write reviews, but I figure a song that's this catchy deserves one.

Also, you can stream the full "Forget and Not Slow Down" album from Absolute Punk right now. Warning: you may need a helmet because it's about to BLOW YOUR MIND.

Relient K has yet to disappoint me. I've purchased all of their albums over the years, and I'm in love with every single song. Forget And Not Slow Down is no different. Trust me, it's worth it. It always has been.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...perspective is a lovely hand to hold... February 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
20 years ago I experienced a great death of something wonderful. I had in my crumbling heart the soul of this disc. It's so strange and yet cathartic to sing what died so long ago. I don't need no stinkin hooks and silly loops. This is the best C-rock can be ...real life and how to carry on. This is my favorite RK disc for this reason alone. The Boss watching over us as we fail so mightily and devastatingly. The challenge is getting up again and ultimately loving again. This is the first CD in years that I could really hammer into my head for weeks and still find meaning and emotion. I like the previous RK offerings but compared to this they are somewhat detached. This is the first RK that I put on the level of Switchfoot and Jars. I've been blessed and ministered to with hard riffs and bashing drum kit and keyboards to die for...yeah thanks guys, I've been in the wars too and I learned to love deeper and better. Amen and Rock on.
