Sounding like All Star United on speed, Relient K are at it from the start of this CD with the driving "Chapstick, Chapped Lips And Things Like Chemistry" opening up an album that never sits back from a blend of edgy rock and the thinking man's lyric. Tracks like "College Kids" or the laidback "Getting Into You" show that the Ks can produce almost any style of rock without losing their musical or spiritual edge. You could play this album mixed up with Wheatus or They Might Be Giants and non-Christians wouldn't spot any stylistic difference. Musically tongue in cheek openings and lyrics like the ones for "In Love With The '80s" show that the boys aren't just a bunch of Jesus Freaks with guitars, but rather are sophisticated masters of their tuneful trade. Special K? The Relients are serial thrillers and should be your breakfast listening this morning without fail.
