Album Review

Relient K, named after guitarist Matt Hoopes' well-worn and battered Reliant K car, released their sophomore album, The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek, in August 2001. The Gotee label artists — with members Matt Hoopes, Matthew Thiessen, Brian Pittman, and Stephen Cushman — combine the styles of ska and punk, resembling the sound of groups such as MXPX and the O.C. Supertones. The highly energetic band, who once intended on leading worship, offers socially relevant topics communicated in understandable language. Geared toward teenagers and young adults, the pop culture references in tracks including "Sadie Hawkins Dance" and "Maybe Its Maybeline" are quickly identifiable and immediately grasp the listener's attention. Definite highlights include the acoustic "For the Moments I Feel Faint" and "The Rest Is up to You."

Love it!!

This was my first Relient K record and it holds a special place in my heart to this day. Its such a fun album, with so many great tracks. The band have changed and matured a lot over the years, but Thiessens' amazing song-writing ability was evident even back in 2001. This is a must-have (and I do mean MUST) for any RK fan. Or anyone else, for that matter. You should most definately buy it.


This album has some amazing songs... 'for the moments i feel faint' has pulled me through many a tough time. Relient k is so inpsirational but they are also fun and silly sometimes too, such as in 'sadie hawkins dance' and 'may the horse be with you'. Such a great album with a song for every emotion you might be feeling...

For the Moments I Feel Faint

Is all I can say, cause this is one of the best albums for those times!!!!
