The guy can write. Like... really, really, really well. He's the Matthew West of Christian Rock.
He'll take a sentence that doesn't seem to have any logical follow up line and put the perfect verse... and make it so fun!
It's simple, catchy and just sappy enough to not be cheesy. Love it!
He's also good at serious stuff. Deathbed is a 10 minute masterpiece of song writing!
In recent years, Relient K have been... less than awesome in my books. The songs are still well written, but seemed to be lacking a bit of that youthful cheekiness. The joy wasn't there.
Enter their new song Bummin'. To be honest, I don't know what I think of the song... nor do I know if the joy is back.
What I do know, is I've listened to it about 12 times today and am [finally] enjoying a new upbeat pop-rock song from Relient K!
