My instant reaction when I saw this post was "ugh." RK's my all time favorite band. Actually pleasantly surprised. Super catchy and some cool instrumentation, I love that acoustic guitar line and the synth.

I can let this slide cause at least this is just something generic he shit out for a fake tv band. Whatever pays the bills. I'll reserve hope for Relient K's next album cycle, hope he gets this mindless pop phase out of his system.

mindless pop is what he's always been great at. wrote "fireflies", katy perry, kelly clarkson songs, etc. doubt he'll stop. but I wouldn't worry about RK's future. even though the new album is way pop, he could have easily turned songs like this one and "good time" into RK tracks so he definitely knows how to separate it.

well yeah, I don't really care if he writes songs for other people, there's nothing in this one where I go "oh, I wish he kept this line for himself" or anything like that. Like you say, long as he knows how to separate it. I'm not into the new stuff, but he's the best at writing clever stuff that can still carry substance so like I say I still look forward to the next album.

I love Relient K, but I don't think I'll ever listen to anything Matt writes for anyone else.

Besides Owl City's Ocean Eyes.

Only thing to say is that Matt knows how to write a song.
If I heard this song on the radio I wouldn't change the station...I'd probably turn it up a bit.

So true! I head clips of the new album today and it's very poppy but it still sounds good. A lot of it is definitely lacking that substance. Sounds like the album is going to be good for what it is, though.
