It's one of those bands you either love or hate. Pop/punk fans would worship them, and hardcore metal fans would probably spit at them. Either way, this album is full of addictive guitar riffs that makes you listen to the album over and over again. There are a few nice'n'easy guitar solos here and there, but as a musical talent, All-American Rejects are poor. Some songs even have a techno-type drumming composed on the computer, which makes the album stink more of cheese. I personally think All-American Rejects are a great band as I'm a big fan of punk music, but really, techno-drumming? It does kinda puts me off. But still, very good band though.

No particular emotional and shocking lyrics in their songs, but they're not too bad. It's listenable.
Overall Impression — 8
A fairly impressive debut album by the teenage-punk band, but they could have done better. It's definitely worth buyin' but you metal fans out there should avoid it at all costs it'll probably drive you nuts. Good album.
