14 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

MMHMM could be the purest distillation of Relient K—that is, a perfect blend of thrashing pop-punk, earworm melodies, irreverent humor, and authentic faith. Many of these songs rank among their best, including the rousing prodigal’s anthem “I So Hate Consequences,” the crunching rock ‘n’ roll of “High of 75,” and the sweet and funny relationship song “My Girl’s Ex-Boyfriend.” The epic closer, “When I Go Down,” runs through the band’s biggest influences—from folk to punk to The Beach Boys—over the course of nearly seven minutes.

MMHMM is fantastic

Relient K's songwriting and musical ability continue to grow here as Thiessen combats depression with a classic weather metaphor in the speedy "High of 75," finds his self-worth in "More Than Useless," and mourns lost love in the stunning, emotionally charged suite of "Which to Bury; Us or the Hatchet" and "Let it All Out." From the blazing album opener ("The One I'm Waiting For") to the two outstanding singles ("Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been") the songwriting represents the high point of the band's career at release date and will remain a favorite of all Relient K fans.
