I didn't go a bundle on the first Relient K album, it didn't gel well for me and it lacked the anger that a punk album needs. I thought they were just a wannabe MxPx. This new album is a major improvement, the band have honed their sound into a tighter and meaner package and the production has a more punk rock edge. But they're still a fun band though from the 10 second intro track to the excellent Thundercats tribute "I'm Lion-O" and the pun-laden "May The Horse Be With You". "Those Words Are Not Enough" is certainly one of the album's musical high points. Relient K will appeal to fans of the recently demised Dum Dums and, if for that reason alone, should find themselves a market in the UK.
