Small CD, big songs

By Nathan,

In between Mmhmm, and Five Score and Seven Years Ago, comes Apathetic Ep from Relient K. The Ep is Relient K all the way, from the punk/rock tunes to the acoustic versions of some of their songs.

The first two tracks, the single, "the Truth" and "apathetic way to be" is traditional Relient K pop/punk, which are very good, and set up nicely for the newest album. Fallowing those, are three acoustic versions of older songs, two of off their CD Mmhmm (the hit "be my escape" and "which to bury, us or the hatchet") and "overthinking" from their two lets don't make a right, but three do, album.

"which to bury, us or the hatchet" sounds better non-acoustic, but "overthinking" seems to be born to be acoustic. The two final tracks is started of by "always winter", a song inspired by the lion the witch and the wardrobe movie. It is beautifully written, and is an awesome song all around. The final song, is "the thief" a strait piano song that adds to the wonder of the small disc.

When fans wanted something from Relient K, they got it in the form of Apathetic Ep, a CD that will entertain fans while they wait.
