Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

Relient K drove Christian rock into the fast lane with their pop-punk hooks and teasing teenage attitude. Leader Matt Theissen’s songs mix youthful, stand-up-and-be-counted defiance, with a knowing, lyrical maturity that puts the accent on faith. Smart-guy vocals snarl over a surge of guitar power, propelled by a rhythm section that knows when to hit the gas, and when to coast with the melody. Hot-wired to the heart and soul, Relient K is a free-spirited foursome of true believers.

this is a pretty good tribute utilizing a violin for the melody and emphasized by the viola, bass, and cello. the songs are compiled from relient k's first album, self titled "relient k", to their latest, "mmhmm". the selection of music is fair, and range from their deeply thought out spiritual songs to their witty but understandingly true songs.

I have never been a huge fan of "classical" music that includes violins and such, but my brother bought this CD and I was very interested. I am a big fan of Relient K but would I like this string quartet? I did! They make the music of Relient K so relaxing and soothing. Anyone who has a taste for Relient K will like this.

The String Quartet did a wonderful job on playing their songs on other instruments and it sounds perfect and identical to the song. They even add a little extra "oomph" into the music that makes you more attracted to it. So I will say again, If you like Relient K, you will like this.

After the release of mmhmm in 2004, Relient K got major mainstream attention; MTV, The Tonight Show, and other venues now featured the band for the first time. The band also captured the attention of one Todd Mark Rubenstein, one of the leaders of "The String Quartet Tribute," a group that puts the classical spin on everyone from "The Beatles" to "U2," "Good Charlotte" to "American Idol," over 200 albums in all, with Rubenstein doing over 40 of those himself. That's right; your favorite Relient K songs have been turned into classical music.

Now, before you click away, at least find a sample of album first. If you don't like what you hear, or if you're not a fan of classical music in general, you'll most likely not like this project. This review, however, is for the rest of us.

The way that the group works is they go note for note on the songs, replacing the band's instruments with violins, cellos, and the occasional drum. But, the obvious first question is, does it work? Well, one advantage is that it puts more emphasis on the emotions of the music itself, with songs like "Getting into You" and "Jefferson, Aero Plane," this works well. However, there is an exception with "Let It All Out," which was primariy vocally and lyrically driven, not quite as musically reliant. The quartet's version, being all music, doesn't work as well.

Surprisingly, taking on guitar driven songs such as "Softer to Me," "Failure to Excommunicate," and "Pressing On" gives new angles to the songs, and more of an appreciation for the melodies that Matt Thiessen is able to craft with each one. And although not a string instrument, the drum plays an important role on the album as well, especially with "Be My Escape.

This CD has very well done string quartet recreations of Relient K's big hit songs.I would highly recommend it as a good addition to a Relient K fan's collection or for someone who enjoys variety as well. It is also a good way to bring the amazing music of Relient K to someone who likes strings.
