I challenged myself to go through Relient K’s mainline discography and give each record a fresh set of ears.
I continue to trek through Relient K's discography with their sophomore release, The Anatomy of Tongue in Cheek (2001).
"Anatomy" still suffers from some of the same faults as RK's self-titled record. The lyrics are full of cheese in a way that gets in the way of taking the songs seriously. The music is much more developed than Self-Titled, but it starts to drag halfway through because there are so many dang songs. Like seriously guys. Cut out like 6 of these songs.
-Very clear progress in musical ability and song structure from their previous work.
-Catchier and memorable songs.
-Songs that helped define their early career (Like "Sadie Hawkin's Dance").
-Lyrics are still cheesy.
-Runtime is far too long.
-Album artwork is boyband-esque.
-"Sadie Hawkin's Dance"
-"For the Moments I Feel Faint"
