Sound — 8
The sound of the All-American Rejects self titled disc is really different. Like they will be singing about losing there girlfriend, but the music is so catchy, and happy, that it keeps you listening. And they choose different affects like the organ to keep it unique.

Tyson ritter is one of the best lyric writers! Instead of just saying flat - out shallow sounding lyrics, his sound more like poetry put to music. He still says how he feels, just not as simple as "Simple Plan" or other bands. I think the All-American Rejects lyrics get you thinking.
Overall Impression — 10
I totally think its a good thing to buy this cd. There's so much you can relate to on it. My favorites are "Too Far Gone" and "One More Sad Song", because of the lyrics.
