As a long time of fan of Relient K, I do enjoy the album. Sure, it's not what I expected at all, but it's still some good music. The lyrics aren't the greatest, yes. But to be fair, most of them weren't even written by Thiessen alone as usual. There's a lot of electronic instrumentation which is unusual for Relient K, but it works. It's just a pop album, and if you look at it as that, and not as a follow up of Forget and Not Slow Down, it's not that bad. It's a complete 180 from FANSD and really shouldn't even be compared to it. I will say however, a lot of this album sounds better live. I was really looking forward to hearing the studio version of Boomerang because I loved the live version, but I was highly disappointed when I heard it. Same with Collapsible Lung. Sure, a lot of the general fans of RK and the fans who really loved FANSD won't like the album, but they can't please everyone. Was it worth the 4 year wait though? Probably not.

I wish I could like this album because I love this band. Man, it's just not good at all. I even knew it was supposed to be "a goofy pop album" and I was totally fine with that... but man, this isn't the way to do it. I really like 3-4 songs, but the rest do absolutely nothing for me.

Love this song so much! I don't mind RK releasing Collapsible Lungs just because of this. So good.

Easily the weakest relient k record, but I love playing it regardless.

I love myself some good Relient K but oh man this last album is disappointing. I get what they were trying to do but it is just not working for me. This song is great though.

Dude turbo power over to the nearest FANSD playing station right away.

This song is great... too bad it's one of two on the album. This record was a huge disappointment.

Forgot that album even existed.

That album could've reached higher than a 6 for me...had he spent more time working on the vocals, the lyrics, mixing the album, and still cutting a few songs.

There are some who enjoy it, but you are in a minority.
Well, it's certainly not a horrible album like the majority make it out to be.

I guess it's time to be cliche and agree to disagree then, good sir.

Depends on what basis the vote would be taken on, if it were for this site then the outcome is quite clear.

On basis of it having quality content. Which it has extremely little.
