Album Review

The All-American Rejects' effervescent 2003 hit "Swing Swing" sounded like a pop-punk adaptation of Better Than Ezra, and their sophomore effort makes this mix even more apparent. The earnest racket of an outfit like the Get Up Kids is also a component in Move Along's sound. But the Rejects blend and sculpt those influences with keyboards, choirs, pianos — there's even a classical guitar on "Top of the World" — and the result is superficial midrange pop with appeal for a general audience of casual listeners. (Fans of Wakefield, Something Corporate, Switchfoot, and American Hi-Fi should take note.) The Rejects rock out a little on "Night Drive," "Dirty Little Secret," and "I'm Waiting" — the guitars crackle anxiously, and Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler's breathy harmonies soar like they mean it. There's also distortion somewhere in "Stab My Back," but it's buried under acoustic guitars, vocal overdubs, and mournful keyboards. Move Along has some memorable hooks, such as those on the title track or "Change Your Mind" — and, living up to its title, it moves along efficiently, usually keeping the pace at a snappy midtempo. The songs are also impeccably arranged, even if they're relentlessly processed and some of the instrumentation seems like overkill. (A children's choir? Come on....) In other words, it's easy to like the All-American Rejects if you're looking for 21st century mainstream rock that takes very, very few chances but does offer solid melodies and easy to swallow take/break and night/flight rhyme schemes.

Customer Reviews

the are so good

they are good that all then o can say so i only love the songs Move Along and Dirty Little Secret that all so these 2 songs are so good WOW

The. Best. Ever.

This is a great album that really shows their talent. AAR is an amazing band, but sadly, the don't get very much credit for their meaningful and just overall great songs. My personal favorites are Top of the World, It Ends Tonight and Stab My Back. I highly recomend this album.

AAR are Awesome!

I really enjoyed this album. AAR are a very talented band and it really shows. Tyson has a really unique voice which makes this album a bit different. I did give this 4 stars though because some of the songs tend to sound the same but it's still great! AAR are amazing live (i saw them on the Black Clouds and Underdogs Tour with Fall Out Boy). My favourite songs on this album as of now are It Ends Tonight, Top Of The World, Dance Inside, and Can't Take It.


Formed: 2000 in Stillwater, OK

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Vocalist/bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler both hail from Stillwater, OK, where the pair first embraced music as an appealing diversion from the ho-hum life of small-town America. Citing such influences as AC/DC, Def Leppard, and Bon Jovi, they formed the emo-pop group All-American Rejects in 2000, while both members were still in high school. Maintaining a full lineup proved to be difficult, however, so Ritter and Wheeler employed drum loops and pre-programmed rhythm tracks during...
