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."

The Best Relient K

This is how God intended them to be, fun, sometimes serious, and worship. Every song is awesome. Pressing On is my favoite song of all time.

great stuff

It is very refreshing to hear a Christian band that is so original. Relient K's music is great, a small bit unorthodox perhaps, but that only makes it better. Their lyrics are unlike anything I have ever heard. I can't think of a word to perfectly describe them; just listen closely and you will see what I mean. Definitely go for the whole album. I beg of you not to just get Sadie Hawkins Dance. It is a great song, but the others are just as good, if not better.

Canton, Ohio's Relient K formed in 1998 and joined the parade of Christian punk-pop artists (MxPx, Ghoti Hook, Slick Shoes) with their self-titled 2000 debut, mixing catchy melodies and snotty attitude with spiritual concerns. The record was produced by dc Talk guitarist Mark Townsend, and the band was comprised of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Matt Thiessen, guitarist Matthew Hoopes, bassist Brian Pittman, and drummer Stephen Cushman. David Douglas joined up in place of Cushman by the year's end, and...
