All Music Guide - Tom Semioli
Big hooks abound on this 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, 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 this 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, All-American Rejects passionately render songs about girls, love, self-doubt, ...

Guitar-driven and underpinned with a humane-sounding drum machine cranking out frenetic backbeats, each cut on this 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, 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, All American Rejects are primed to be embraced by the masses.

    de BEST CD EVER!!!

    I love all-american rejects. my friend is a huge fan of them and got me listening to them. these songs are so awesome, i listen to them when im really depressed or stressed out. all-american rejects should be like one of the hottest bands around. i was a bit put out when i saw the CD didnt have Dirty Little Secrets which is awesome. Paper Heart, Swing Swing, and Last Song are my favs.

    Love this cd!!!

    I can't believe how great this cd is. I just started listening to the all american rejects a couple weeks ago and i'm already obsessed with their music. Lol. They have some of the best songs on this album, especially The Last Song, My Paper Heart, Your Star, and Too Far Gone. Those are some of the coolest songs. I'd definitely recommend this cd. :)

    Can't wait for there new CD

    This CD is awesome. Me and my best friend love this CD so much. It's our favorite CD and the best songs are Time Stands Still and Too Far Gone. I love punk rock, but this CD is good when you're having girl problems. The new CD comes out this summer and I just wanted to let anyone who loves this band to know that. ROCK ON!

    Great CD

    Honestly, when I first listened to the CD, I didn't like it that much. But then I really started to listen to it and now I love it. I can listen to it all the way through without skipping a song (which rarely happens with CDs) but anyway, it's a great CD. I would definitely recommend it.

    THIS CD IS NOT ALL THAT GOOD!!

    ok, i know everyone is talking about this cd and all that, but it is really not worth your money if you really like punk. these guys are soft. drive away and happy endings are the only songs that are ok. swing swing blows.
