Relient K 

The Bird and the Bee Sides (Gotee)

Canton's Christian-pop-punks Relient K have been making records for 10 years. For their sixth album, they gather a bunch of their leftovers, B-sides, and rarities, and add some new tunes to the mix. Most of the new songs take the band beyond its usual crunchy guitar pop. "The Last, the Lost, the Least" is an exception, and it's a keeper. Cuts like the somber "There Was No Thief" and the southern-fried "You'll Always Be My Friend" reveal a whole new palette of sounds. The Bird and the Bee Sides not only celebrates a decade of Relient K; it points to a bright new future for the group as well. — Fleisher
