Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Semioli
Big hooks abound on the forceful debut by power pop whiz kids Nick Wheeler and Tyson Ritter. Though not yet old enough to legally buy an alcoholic drink in the year 2002, the All-American Rejects are capable songwriters, accomplished vocalists, and skilled instrumentalists. Guitar-driven and underpinned with a humane-sounding drum machine cranking out frenetic backbeats, each cut on their self-titled debut brims with harmonies that recall the early Who and classic Beach Boys. Bolstered by the brash bar band bravado akin to the Replacements, the Goo Goo Dolls, and Fastball in all their ragged glory, the All-American Rejects passionately render songs about girls, love, ...

Though not yet old enough to legally buy an alcoholic drink in the year 2002, the All-American Rejects are capable songwriters, accomplished vocalists, and skilled instrumentalists. Guitar-driven and underpinned with a humane-sounding drum machine cranking out frenetic backbeats, each cut on their self-titled debut brims with harmonies that recall the early Who and classic Beach Boys. Bolstered by the brash bar band bravado akin to the Replacements, the Goo Goo Dolls, and Fastball in all their ragged glory, the All-American Rejects passionately render songs about girls, love, self-doubt, and youthful abandon. Cuts such as "Too Far Gone" employ a sympathetic orchestral backdrop, while tracks including "Drive Away," "My Paper Heart," and "One More Sad Song" prove that loud guitars and a broken heart make great rock & roll. A talented band destined for great things, the All-American Rejects are primed to be embraced by the masses. [The British edition of this album features an acoustic version of "The Cigarette Song" as a bonus track.]

    Songs for the Broken-Hearted

    The first time I heard the song "Swing, Swing," I fell in love with it. It immediately became one of my favourite songs and remains so to this day. But I was still skeptical about buying the All-American Rejects album. I figured they were simply another stupid popular punk band with bad clothes and meaningless lyrics. I figured wrong. When I finally bought the album, I instantly connected with the band. This album is basically a collection of sweet love songs accompanied by a few punk notes. Nearly every song tells of unrequieted love, broken hearts and moving on. I would classify this type of music as "wuss-punk." Perfect if you've ever been rejected by someone you adored, or if you've just come out of a relationship but just can't seem to get on with your life. The All-American Rejects don't necessarily scream music to mosh to, but they're still full of sweet emo-tion. These guys are no sell-outs. They rock!
