The All-American Rejects
“Kids in the Street”
This “project” of going back into my “vault” and reviewing every album allows plenty of opportunities to reflect and live in the past, but every once in a while, like this album, it allows me a chance to reconcile previous harsh opinions. When I first picked up this album I thought it was a low-range C rating at best, but after some time off, I revisited each track and realized that, for the most part, the blend of pop-rock was well done. It even seems like the band is maturing.
Favorite Track: Heartbeat Slowing Down
Second Favorite: Out the Door
