Review

This new 7 track EP from punkpop charmers Relient K is a collection of b-sides and acoustic tracks,we get acoustic versions of 2 tracks from their latest album MmHmm - "Be my escape" and "Which to bury,us or the hatchet" and a stripped unplugged version of "Over thinking" from the 2003 record "Two lefts don?t make a right,but three do".
2 are full band songs of the more typical happy punkpop style we?re used to hear from this Christian quartet,the opening track "The truth" is an ok catchy punkpop song but no knockout.
The following "Apathetic way to be" is the highlight of the EP with a real singalong chorus,I would?ve wanted to hear more like this sunny song.
The remaining 2 are ballads - "In like a lion" (always winter" is a fine slow powerpop song in the Something Corporate vein which feels like it has it?s place at the end of the EP.
The EP ends with the piano piece "The thief" which is nice but not as good the one before,it?s short and misses a real chorus.
These 37 minutes don?t do me anything good more than 2 tracks coz the acoustic versions of the older tracks don?t fill that hole that I feel this EP contains.

Tracklisting 1. The Truth
2. Apathetic Way To Be
3. Be My Escape (Acoustic)
4. Which To Bury, Us Or The Hatchet (Acoustic)
5. Over Thinking (Acoustic)
6. In Like A Lion (Always Winter)
