Album Review

Less punk than infectious power pop, Chicago's Plain White T's put a modern, airwave-affable stamp on that beloved strain of the rock & roll virus with All That We Needed. The jumpy title track launches the set with a nod to Tom Petty's "American Girl," but the hooks don't stop there. The band draws on Jimmy Eat World for the hit contender "Take Me Away," while tunes like the lovelorn "My Only One" and the punchy "Revenge" rock harder and feel more original. If the cowbell-heavy "What More Do You Want?" is as cheesy as it is alluring, the guilty pleasures continue with the "young horny guy on tour" missive "Sing My Best," which is just one of several songs that recall great lost bands like the Producers, the Ravyns, and the Romantics. The obligatory acoustic parting shot is also solid, evoking the spirit of Big Star's classic "Thirteen." ~ John D. Luerssen, Rovi

"hey there delilah"

plain white t's definitely made a good album this time. but my ALL TIME favorite is hey there delilah!!! its really a good song and u should buy it. every time i listen to it it makes me want to cry thats how good this song is so buy it. its AMAzing.


This is one of the best albums I have heard!! Every track is different so it's not like it is a repeat of the same thing. There is a song for every mood. Some songs are slow like "Hey There Delilah" and some songs are fast like "Revenge". This is a album you have to buy!!

All That We Needed is one of the best CD's of 2005 leading into 2006. All of the songs have amazing lyrics, beats, and instruments. Listen to "All That We Needed", "My Only One", "Breakdown", and "Hey There Delilah". Those are just a few of the great songs on this CD. All That We Needed is a must-have! :)

Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago, the punk-pop outfit Plain White T's began taking shape in 1997, a full ten years before the acoustic ballad "Hey There Delilah" made them Grammy-nominated stars. Lead singer Tom Higgenson was originally fascinated with the drums, having served as the percussionist for various rock bands during high school. One such band was Harvey's Daughter, whose lineup also featured bass player Ken Fletcher. Although the group disbanded, the two remained friends and quickly...
