Sound — 9
This CD is one of the best I've heard before. Each song on this CD are great. From melodic (High Of '75) to basically metal (Life After Death And Taxes). Each song has its own unique sound and it's great. There could have been less piano in thier songs it was a bit overused. But the rest was great pop-punk.

Everything on this CD is well written. You can tell that Thesien has a real talent for writing songs and that he has a new girlfriend. Songs like (My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend, Which To Bury, Us Or The Hatchet). You can tell ther're songs about his love life. Matt's singing is great he has a real talent for singing. Some of the songs have a little sense of humor like (The Only Thing Worse Then Beating On A Dead Horse Is Betting On It). But if you actually litsen to the song you can tell it goes deeper than the title suggests. And they write about romance and life struggles that everyone can relate to.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is the best Relient K CD yet. It totally blew the other ones away. They really have grown up and become way better musicians and song writers. No other band I've heard sounds this good and does so much different stuff. The best songs on this cd are probably Be My Escape, Who I Am Hates Who I've Been and The One I'm Waiting For. But the rest can also be one of your favorites. If you like the Starting Line or other bands like that you have to get this album.
