Couldn't agree more. There are some really good tracks on this record that should not be scoffed at simply because of the band's pedigree of making other really good albums. Relient K have a knack for writing songs that don't always sound like them, but that doesn't mean they are bad. Everyone likes "Dont Blink" (track1) because is sounds like like classic Relient K. But track 2 is a really good 3OH3! type song, track 3 is a really good Foster The People song, track 4 is a good Lady Gaga song, Track 5 is great Jason Miraz song, track 6 sounds like the Bravery, and track 6 is a Maroon 5 song that sounds better than Maroon 5. Cant we appreciate this band for mastering so many sounds on one record? So much backlash for this album is from people who wanted another "Forget and Not Slow Down", but that has been done! And I think it is a little unfair to pigeonhole a band as diverse as RK to rehash the same record over and over. Although the content of these songs do fair more on the side of "Sadie Hawkins Dance" and less "Death Bead", I think it would behoove the listener to understand how truly difficult it is to write the kinds of songs that are on this record. Good job guys!
