Customer Reviews

Great Music, But Really?

Okay first off, I've been excited for this album for a while now, and it's not a let down. Great music, just the kind that I like. That being said, they could have made it a bit cleaner. I miss the old AAR where I could blast it with the rest of my family in the other room, but this album has quite a things that would stop me from doing that. Including "F" words and other cuss words. Other than that, I'm very happy with it.

Kinda Dissapointing

Wow So I Have Been Literally Waiting For This Album For Like 3 Years. I Had HUGE Expectaions For This Album And, Well I'm Slightly Dissapointed. Don't Get Me Wrong It's Still Great, Just Not The Best. Their Sound Has Really Changed And I Miss The Old AAR! They Used To Have Alot More Drums And Upbeat Songs Which Is Pretty Much Obsolite In this Album.

Kids In the Street

Take nostalgia, the love, the hate, and the rest of Tyson's feelings and you get The All-American Rejects newest album Kids In the Street. Kids In the Street is overall a very well put together album with a new sound different than The Rejects usual sound, and by that I mean trumpets (Beekeeper's Daughter) and synths (Kids In the Street) but it works for them in an unexpected way. It sounds like they might be selling out by using things like that in their music but this album has been in the works for about 3 years and each song is constructed in such an awe-striking way that you will fall in love with a few songs on the album on your first listen through, if not every song and, and the rest in the next couple listens. Every song has it's on uniqueness while still fitting into the rest of the album as a whole masterpiece. This is by no way the "Swing, Swing" AAR, or the "Move Along" AAR, or not even the AAR that brought us all "Gives You Hell", it is all of them mixed together with maturity thrown in and experience and realism at the end. It is their most mature album to date and signifies who they are and what they can really do, this is the album that shows their true sound.
Track-By-Track:

Someday's Gone: A great kick start to the album and is full of emotion and some odd lyrics, "draw me a story, tell me a picture", that just captivate you. It has a slight sound of their old days with new influences. 4/5

Beekeeper's Daughter: The first official single for the album and a fun song. The song talks about a more personal issue Tyson went through and how he considered himself to be a horrible guy and he let's it out on this song and the rest of the band gives you beats and riffs you'll be humming and singing along with. 4/5

Fast and Slow: Another fun song that speaks a little to a few different emotions but is catchy and fun and addicting none the less. 4/5

Heartbeat Slowing Down: After hearing the single Kids In the Street I thought that would be the dominant track on this album until I heard this and one other song. This song is straight from the deepest of Tyson's emotions an has a pulse pounding drum beat and guitar and bass behind him. This song is one of the defining tracks of this album if not the defining track of the album. 5/5

Walk Over Me: This song talks about a guy who is just having a bad time in life; horrible ex gf, wanting more pills, and wanting love. It's a fun song and there is really no other way to describe it other than fun. A stand out track on the album that will make you need help to stop listening to it if you can bare to be torn away from it. 5/5

Out the Door: This track is one I have yet to figure out exactly how it makes me feel. It is a straight forward song about leaving in a sense. The lyrics seem simple but they will drag you in along with the building musical back drop that builds and unleashes at the end. 4/5

Kids In the Street: The title track of the album speaks to those moments when we really could be "kids in the street". Lyrically and musically everyone can relate to one part or another or may e the whole song. Innocence and the fun moments of childhood. It is a great song and one that this album will be remembered for. 5/5

Bleed Into Your Mind: Along with Heartbeat Slowing Down, this song tore me away from the stand out title track. This song talks of lasting in someone's mind or "bleeding" into their mind to show them you are the one. It is lyrically a great and beautiful song with very unique percussion (seems a better word than drums for this song) with a nice appropriate guitar layered in. 5/5

Gonzo: Along with Out the Door I don't know how or why I feel like I feel about this song but I love it along with all the others. It seems to be an ode to the future from a past point of future, a song about taking control of your life and moving into adulthood. 4/5
Affection: I will honestly admit that at first this was my least favorite track but after a listen or two I grew to love it and it is on the bottom of the songs but it is lyrically funny about affection. It is nice and soft until it hits the end of the song their is a big string background with a big finale that is subliminally in your face and sweet. 3.5/5

I For You: This song the first time I heard it was in a live performance I saw online by just Tyson and Nick and it brought tears to my eyes. This song is the "apology" song to everyone according to Tyson. It speaks the deep inner feeling we all feel when we truly love someone, no one will be as good for you as "I For You". It is emotional and deep. It is probably one of my all time favorite songs ever due to the rawness of it and the beauty and elegance it holds. 5/5

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...
