Overview

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."

I love this CD! I saw PLain White T's open for Simple Plan and I've been hooked since. This CD is just...fun. I love "Lazy Day Afternoon".

I came across this band accidently and they've been one of my favorites ever since that day! Hey there delilah just has to be one of the prettiest songs I've ever heard.

I purchased this CD when the Plain White T's opened for Simple Plan this year. Their tracks like "Take Me Away" and "Hey There Delilah" just blew a new meaning into music, as "Breakdown" showed what parents and problems could lead to. "Sad Story" is a truly captivating tune, in fact the whole CD is captivating. I truly recommend this for fans of Yellowcard, Simple Plan and Jimmy Eat World. [Speaking of them, JEW opened for Green Day. They rocked]

For me, all it is is a strong sophmore effort. It's a nice CD and all... I crack it open at least once a month, even after two years, but... It's missing the punk element that attracted me to Stop, and the cheesey, poppy element that now attracts thousands of 12 year old girls to Every Second Counts. Good CD, if you're a PWT fan, but if not... settle for the Itunes download of hey there delilah.

Ah, finally...a band that I can actually understand! The songs of "Plain White T's" are not only catchy and sweetly awesome, they also have really interesting stories behind them!! I especially love "Hey There Delilah"! :3

I love their work. It lacks a cloud of metaphor, but If everyone wrote like Don McLean, we would all find it normal. I love them, although I don't like Hey There Delilah nearly as much as their song in Stop, A Lonely September. Awesome!
