A pathetic EP? As if!

Considering the exploding popularity of Relient K as Christian rock’s new “it” band, ravenous fans want everything they can get their hands on. To keep them at bay, the growing gap between 2004’s MMHMM and the next record is straddled with the eight-song Apathetic EP, a brief but arty collection mixing startling remakes with brand-new gems.

Apathetic EP is anchored by two examples of the band’s trademark punk-charged guitar pop, “The Truth” and “Apathetic Way to Be” (which originally appeared on the limited-edition vinyl of MMHMM). Although some of the quirky wordplay and musical bounce is present, the rest of the disc shows Relient K moving away from its roots as heir apparent of Five Iron Frenzy and into newer territory.

The middle of the disc sports three haunting acoustic remakes. “Be My Escape (acoustic)” and “Which to Bury, Us or the Hatchet (acoustic)” from MMHMM, and “Over Thinking (acoustic)” from 2003’s Two Lefts Don’t Make A Right…But Three Do, have been disassembled and rebuilt from the ground up as thoughtful, mature acoustic rockers.

A new track, the bittersweet “In Like a Lion (Always Winter),” inspired by the C.S. Lewis classic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, clings to hope in the midst of darkness. The final two tracks, the dark piano ballad “The Thief” and an acoustic redux of the band’s MTV hit, “Who I Am Hates Who I’ve Been,” actually end the EP on a kind of downer.

But with the disc clocking in at under 30 minutes, it’s easy enough to hit “play” again and return to the vibrant opening rocker. Going full circle like that, Apathetic EP becomes a snapshot of this band in transition. As the guys continue to move away from their early “goofball” image and become young men of artistic substance, Apathetic EP documents their continued growth.

    I really, really enjoyed this cd. Just the whole idea of it made me excited, so I was thrilled to add it to my cd collection. I have always enjoyed acoustic versions, so I wasnt disappointed at all with this cd. I also enjoy hearing b-side songs to an album (just to see what we miss and why they went the direction they did with the original release). "The Truth" and "Apathetic Way To Be" are actually two of my favorite rK songs. I think it really showcases T-sons clever songwriting. This cd is defiantly worth buying if you're an older Relient K fan. Youll especially appreciate cd if you own The Creepy EP by rK.

    RK is definitely my favorite band, but I was really disappointed with this CD. It only came out with a few new songs. I hope the next CD will introduce me to more of RKs new stuff.
