It's certainly debatable among fans of the band, but I would venture a guess with a wide enough sample size that MMHMM
would be voted Ohio-based punk band Relient K's best overall album. Forget and Not Slow Down
and Air for Free
should also be in that conversation in my opinion, but I digress. The band's two most streamed songs are present here (both over nineteen MILLION and BME with sixty-two million) in "I So Hate Consequences" and "Be My Escape," respectively. This is the album that took the goofy fellas in a more serious direction lyrically (though there is still tomfoolery to be found), and added in more piano for greater musical diversity than typical fast and furious punk fare. For my money, the transition between "Which to Bury, Us or the Hatchet?" and "Let It all Out" is some of their finest work. Best song on the five-star album, and my pick for the best overall song in their catalogue period, is the aforementioned "I So Hate Consequences." It's their best album for that matter---fight me!
