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

Amazon.com

Following the lead of their secular counterparts like Blink 182 and Good Charlotte, Christian pop-punk group Relient K changes tact for its fourth studio album. Cue pianos and strings and lyrics that largely leave behind adolescent concerns in search of greater meaning on epic songs like "Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been." But the heavy themes and dark clouds on the album cover don't spell the death of the band's goofy side--for a quick dose of devolution check "The Only Worst Thing Than Beating A Dead Horse Is Betting On One" and "My Girlfriend's Ex-Boyfriend," songs that would make even a sadsack like Morrissey crack a smile. --Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

Relient K has become a massive phenomenon among Christian music fans. With studio albums on the brink of Gold status, the release of the 4th studio album, mmhmm, will be released at the peak of momentum for this band. The fans are more fanatic than ever, the band is the happiest they have ever been about the songs being written for this record. The Relient K boys just keep it coming.

Relient K has gained attention and new fans recently while opening the "Noise To The World" tour for Simple Plan and Good Charlotte. This CD contains about half of the songs they played on the tour, but not older ones like "Sadie Hawkins Dance" and "Chapstick, Chapped Lips, and Things Like Chemistry."

Relient K puts together a CD full of upbeat, light pop-punk. To the casual listener, little more seems meant than songs about relationships (like "High of 75"), or lack of fulfillment ("Be My Escape", "I So Hate Consequences")

The Christian point of view quickly becomes clear. The "you" songs such as "Be My Escape" are addressed to could, if you want it to, be some girl the singer is trying to get to take him from an unfulfilling life, but it could be Jesus as well "You've told me the way, and now I'm trying to get there" "But I can't ask you to give what you already gave". "High of 75" plays on the pun between "sun" and "son", and the clouds battling for control of the sky could be good and evil.

Still, Relient K has cleverly done songs that set forth their point of view, but in a manner that all can appreciate, whatever their religious beliefs. They've joined the mainstream, but without selling out their religious beliefs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrically brilliant, musically great too! July 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, it took me awhile to actually enjoy Relient K. I used to think their music was very generic and their lyrics were cheesy. But this album changed everything for me. Matt Thiessen is such a clever lyricist, using enough word plays to delight the wordsmith in me, but also making me think more deeply about my relationship with God and others.

The band sticks to their standard pop-punk riffs on this album, though I believe they use smoother speed and instrumental transitions on this album. Example: Be My Escape starts with screaming guitars and a fast beat, softens down to keyboards, vocals and light drumming during the verses, back up to rocking during the bridge and chorus, and slows right down for a touching finish. There are several other songs that vary in a like manner.

Lyrically, I really enjoyed Be My Escape (but the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair), Which to Bury, Us or the Hatchet (I move you, but you just wouldn't budge, I tried to hold your hand but you'd rather hold your grudge), When I Go Down (When I go down, I'll lift my eyes to You, but I won't look too far, 'Cause You'll be there with open arms, to lift me up again...). What a beautiful way to end the album!

Musically, many songs stand out - High of 75 is probably the most original song, starting with acoustic guitar, and including a drum loop in the chorus. Other highlights include Who I am Hates Who I've Been, and Life After Death & Taxes, which combines great vocals with some cool screaming!

Relient K has made a fan out of me, and if you buy this album, it will do the same for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars World Enough In Time November 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Relient K's fourth album, mmhmm, is simply excellent. On their first two albums, they were catchy, skillful, humorous, and religious. Their third album was less religiously emphasized, but still very catchy and rather entertaining. This album shows the maturity that one professional reviewer said theit third album still lacked, and it also shows that Relient K still intends to encourage belief with their music, but (still) is not doing so at the expense of their music or to the exclusion of all else. The songs on mmhmm are generally more serious and thoughtful, but their sincerity has not changed on their newest album. There is also evidence of their trademark sense of humor in songs like "My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend" and "The Only Thing Worse Than Beating A Dead Horse Is Getting On One" as well as a few others. As for the music itself, it remains energetic and catchy, and is even more skillful than ever. My personal favorites on this CD (so far, in no particular order) are "High Of 75", "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been", "The One I'm Waiting For" and "Be My Escape" but there is no song on this album which I dislike. This is an excellent investment for anyone who likes Relient K, pop-punk, or just rock music in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Week The Trend is Relient K! August 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
So, I was a bit skeptic about buying this album. I had read reviews on amazon and everyone was saying "Oh, Relient K grew up!" or "Relient K got rid of their silliness!" I mean, c'mon. What's Relient K without silliness, right? So I was skeptic to buy it, but me being the devoted fan, I did. I am so glad. Even though they've gotten rid of their silliness, this CD is my absolute favorite out of all of them. The lyrics are amazing, the songs are amazing, and the overall feel is, yep you guess it--amazing. I'll break down the songs one by one for all you skeptics. Pff. Just buy it.

1. The One I'm Waiting For: (5/5) Great starter song. Lyrics are very catchy, beware.

2. Be My Escape: (5/5) Great song. It'll start to get really annoying though, if you overplay it.

3. High of 75: (5/5) I just love how Relient K syncopates their drum beats and still makes it sound good. This is a good example of it. Good cheer up song.

4. I So Hate Consequences: (5/5) Bit of screaming in the beginning. If you're not used to Relient K screaming, you better get used to it. My second favorite song on the album! I love how it gets slow at the end.

5. The Only Thing Worse Than Beating a Dead Horse is Betting On One: (4/5) ...Kind of a random song. It's not even 1:30 long, but I guess it's good.

6. My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend: (4/5) Funny song. Kind of has the "Stacy's Mom" feel with the guitars. Could be a single.

7. More Than Useless: (5/5) They combine rock and techno in this one. Lyrics are amazing, my third favorite song.

8. Which To Bury, Us or the Hatchet: (5/5) My favorite song! Matt Theissen screams the chorus in this one; but it's not creepy screaming. It's just enough to give you goosebumps, though. That and the lyrics!
