CD Review: The All-American Rejects – Kids in the Street
Ahhhhh, one of my absolute favorite bands have come through again! THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS are back with their fourth album, Kids in the Street. Fans of AAR will be excited to know that the boys are back in true AAR form! Masterful power-pop at its finest! It had to be a daunting task for the band to try to keep up with the pure hit-power of their previous 3 albums! Producing hits like “Swing, Swing”, “Move Along”, “Dirty Little Secret”, and “Gives You Hell”, AAR are the masters of producing relentless hook that won’t let go! Tell me you haven’t been singing every one of those damn songs for days after you heard them? Mmm hmmm…like I said, these boys can write a pop song! With this fourth installment, lead vocalist/bassist Tyson Ritter, guitarist/vocalist Mike Kennerty, lead guitarist/vocalist Nick Wheeler, and drummer Chris Gaylor have delivered again! Loaded with lyrical maturity, swelling vocal harmonies, style variety and introspective soul searching, the tunes on this album range from absolutely stellar ballads to enlivening up-tempo power-pop. The boys have gone with their strengths and each song is delivered to perfection! Favorite tunes include “Fast & Slow” (this one might make you sweat a little), “Kids in the Street”, “Affection” (just…WOW!) and “I For You.” The string continues for AAR…they’re here to stay and show no signs of slowing up! Another platinum effort? Probably! Be sure to grab yourself a copy of Kids in the Street, available now! You won’t be disappointed!
