Overview

The All-American Rejects

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, 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.

The All- American Rejects. That's quite a name for a group that produces everything but rejection! This album is totally SWEET! It has everything a person could want to listen to from fast and loud to soft and romantic. With tunes that have such catchy melodies and truthful lyrics, relating to the Rejects and their songs are easy. The album is chocked full of edgy guitar riffs and drum loops that blend perfectly with their beautifully harmonizing vocals. This is one awesome album that you will be able to listen to over and over again.

When I first got into the All-American Rejects I was blown away. Their awesome rock melodies with discriptive lyrics really make you feel in-depth with the songs. You know that they're going to be big by their first big break with their latest single "Swing Swing", a catchy tune that is just bound to be stuck in your head. If you like such bands as Taking Back Sunday, or Dashboard, you'll love these guys. It's amazing how much they put into their songs and their work. They're not emo. They're not pop/punk. They are just four guys rocking out the way they know how to. They're Oklahoma Rock!!!!

The All American Rejects are simply the best new band out there today. Their combination of basic drum beats, rythmatic guitar and catchy lyrics will have their music in your head for weeks. They keep it simple but by doing this they have created the best album of the year.

"My love for you is sinking to what seems an all time low or high." An all time high is not even half of what the All-American Rejects' self-titled album does to its audience. With its quirky tunes and upbeat rythym, who could resist the music that comes from these small-town Oklahoma boys that make up the wonderfully titled All-American Rejects? With catchy songs like "Swing, Swing" and "Don't Leave Me," as well as magically orchestrated ones such as "The Last Song," the Rejects' first major label debut is perfectly wound together. "Your Star" is an excellent song portraying the fear of love and relationships. Through strain and sorrow, "One More Sad Song" deals with being alone. The band's vocalist/bass player, Tyson Ritter, blows the competition away with his amazing voice and convincing sadness. Those who like more veteran bands such as Allister, The Starting Line, Something Corporate, or Taking Back Sunday will surely love the All-American Rejects and what they are about. Overall, this CD captures what it is truly like to be experiencing love and all that comes with it.

The All-American Reject's self-titled debut cd is a roller coaster of emotions on which turns out to be one of the best discs put out this year. With their catchy riffs and poppy drumbeats, the Rejects mix pop and rock and the result is sheer happiness. On such songs as "Swing, Swing", "Don't Leave Me" and "My Paper Heart" the Rejects' catchy hooks will be humming in your head all day long. The lyrics are personal and talk about heartbreak, love, loss and saying goodbye. Overall, every song sounds different and if you buy this album you won't be taking this album out of your stereo for a long time.

Tyson R.'s vocals are super smooth, and the lyrics are great. Makes you happy listening to it no matter what the songs are about. The song 'swing swing' is an excellent example of their style.

The All American Rejects CD Is awesome. It brings a fresh new vibe and attitude to the pop-punk music scene. The cd is really well written and catchy. People who don't like punk music are getting into the All American Rejects. This is the future of pop-punk music.

I really enjoy this album. It has everything i like abut music. It has hard and fast rock songs. And it also has slow love songs. But one of the coolestthings about it it has computer effects mixed in. The whole album is full of top of the chart sinles. This is the best buy fir any type of music listener.
