The Gems Are Real Gems | Posted July 12, 2007
When Relient K debuted their self-titled album in 2000, there wasn't much to look at. Yes, the band had potential, but there were not many tracks to write home about. Following up, the band released their second EP, The Creepy EP.

The first two tracks are preview tracks for The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek, so looking back, these tracks really offer nothing if you already own the CD. "Operation" is the only studio exclusive; this song's style reflects their debut in the verses, but Anatomy in the chorus. The song's message is a plea for God to give us an operation to extract our pride and remove the hate. Overall, the song is just okay, but it starts to grow on you after listening a few times.

The last three tracks are the real highlights. Up first is an acoustic version of "Softer to Me," which greatly improves on the original. The real key is the raw emotion of the song, just Matt Thiessen and an acoustic guitar conveying the plea""Life could you be a little softer to me." This was my favorite track from the debut, and my love for it only deepens with this version.

The most interesting find is the demo for "Jefferson Airplane," which is distinctly different from the final version, in that the second part of the chorus is totally changed, and the last couple of minutes don't exist. The final version is probably better, but this is fine in its own right. The final track is a unique version of "Pressing On" which is not only acoustic, but back porch acoustic, complete with lawnmower sounds and all. Overall, the EP is really a nugget in the second half, and must-have for a Relient K fan, especially since it is incredibly rare and almost impossible to get.

Kind of like Home videos... | Posted August 09, 2007
I really like this cd. It has only like 6 songs-2 of which are different versions of "Pressing On". the music's good but the lyrics are kinda dumb. But that's kind of why I like it. I love Relient K's recent 2 albums a bunch and listening to this one is like, well kind of when you watch home videos of when you were young,foolish,innocent and unaware of how childish your acting. But thats what makes the videos fun! Because of course you know how much you've grown and matured since then. Same with this album. (except for I was cute when I was little and Matt T. wasn't)
If you listen to the last song "Pressing On" you'll find it a bit strange, it sounds like they recorded the song outside and then when the song finishes you can hear a lawn mower go on for what seems like another 20 minutes. But they're wierd like that. (which is a good thing). and the song Operation is so pathetic you just have to laugh.
But anyway, the album is good if your a true Relient K band...otherwise you'll probably think it's stupid (kind of like if you show a friend your homevideos and they don't ever seem to see what's so funny about your lisping)
