iTunes Editors’ Notes

One need not subscribe to subcultural accessories to let this album work its magic — though the energy of a youthful mind and the passion of an adolescent heart are more likely to get singer Tyson Ritter's dire lyrics of vernal longings and lovelorn sagas. In production, the album doesn't stray far from 2005's Move Along. Maroon 5 producer Eric Valentine gives these songs a polished sound, glossing each track for radio saturation and video game placement. But there are also some fresh new goodies that have been brought to the party — like a lush string ensemble and an all-female choir. Also, folk band the Pierces drop in for a guest appearance on "Another Heart Calls," making for a dramatic song with an endearing call-and-response duet. "Gives You Hell" is a powerful standout that pumps funk-based beats, barbed melodies and what sounds like a locker room of football players chanting the chorus. The album's opener "I Wanna" is impossible to walk away from without humming the hook. The Deluxe Edition of When the World Comes Down bestows eight demo takes of album cuts that feel warmer and more organic than the originals.

Customer Reviews

Just...No

I enjoyed the AAR's last two albums. Both were solid pieces of pop-punk and "Swing, Swing" was one of a few songs that really got me into this scene of music. However, AAR simply falters and fails with their third studio release. Many of the songs are blandly composed and the lyrics sound as if they were written by 14-16 year olds...Not twenty-somethings. The whole album lacks a sense of maturity and sounds as if the band were bored while recording this whole album. Instead of progressing musically, AAR fall into the the musical trends of bands such as Metro Station and Boys Like Girls. There are a few decent tracks here, but as an album, AAR does not come through.

Disappointing

Totally loved the first album, enjoyed the second album, hate the third album. What happened to the raw guitars and rockers like "The Last Song"? Instead, suddenly AAR turned into Oasis.

Gorgeous.

The All-American Rejects have done it again! This album is simply amazing and definitely the best out of the three. Everyone says it doesn't sound like the other ones...IT SHOULDN'T! The whole purpose of this is because they wanted it to be different than their previous albums in a good way. I mean, why would you want songs that sound just like each other? Anyway, a great album and an awesome success for The All-American Rejects(:

Biography

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...
