A lot of the songs are catchy and have a really good feel to them.

This album really shows how the band is changing as they get older, and it is definitely a good thing.

Vocally, lead singer Alex Gaskarth sounds great and sings with such punch.

All Time Low is on my top five bands list and has been there for some time. Dirty Work is their 3rd major album to date. The previous two, Nothing Personal and So Wrong It's Right, stood out as solid albums that delivered Alternative Punkpop Rock worthy of the genre. Dirty Work on the otherhand, doesn't live up to the predecessors in my mind. Why? It seems to leave to far into pop rock and doesn't stay true to their original sound. This is their first album under Interscope Records, and most of the songs we're produced by Mike Green. Maybe there we're too many hands working on this project, or maybe they we're aiming for wide-stream success, but it doesn't quite ring the bells i was hoping it would. The previous two we're under Hopeless Records, and one of my most respected producers Matt Squire did most of that work. I was hoping he would have a big influence on this album instead of the one song he produced. Putting all that behind though, Time-Bomb and Heroes are my favorite tracks, but there's not enough of those tracks to earn my 5/5 mehs. So 3/5 mehs, I'll still love em. I might come to like it over time.

It is a little too pop for me, does not have that alternative edge. I still think their first LP album was the best.

All Time Low has been my favorite band since 2008, after I fell in love with thier album So Wrong, Its Right. I loved everything about them then, especially the fact they wrote thier own lyrics! Now on Dirty Work nearly every song is co-written, and you can hear that very clearly. The lyrics have gotten too focused on being drunk, partying, and living a "dirty" lifestyle.

If you listen to Dirty Work from the viewpoint of some kid who likes MAINSTREAM pop-punk(ish) music, then its a pretty good album. And when I listen to it not thinking of it as the band I fell in love with 2 1/2 years ago, then it sounds pretty good. I especially like "Bad Enough For You" and "Guts". But then again, when I listen to it thinking of thier old songs like "Lullabies" and "Six Feet Under The Stars", then well.. it kinda sounds like trash.

I really think your viewpoint towards All Time Low will effect how you like this album. If you just want some fun, catchy, pop punk summer songs then its a great album. But if youre actually in it for music and real lyrics, then I recommened staying away from this.

After waiting for this album for months, and going to The Dirty Work Tour, I built up to high of hopes for this album, and honestly was let down when I got it. But I dont want to call them out on one poor album - they still are a great band, who are incredible live, and I will always have thier older songs and albums!

It's not like the old All Time Low stuff but its a pretty good album on its own. It has some pretty amazing songs on it, as a long time All Time Low fan i wasn't too keen on the new direction and it works on some songs and not on others. A lot of the songs are catchy and have a really good feel to them. Just give it a shot, that's my suggestion.

It's ironic that All Time Low chose Rivers Cuomo from Weezer to co-write the song "I Feel Like Dancin" for this album. Like Cuomo, All Time Low just wants to write songs about getting drunk and getting laid. And that's all well and good, if the songs have hooks or a purpose. And based on the absurd lyrics, they don't. The Cuomo track is lyrically and stylistically similar to the 2005 Weezer hit (and one of the worst songs ever to hit top 40 radio) "Beverly Hills." Frontman Alex Gaskarth claimed that he and Cuomo completed the track in less than an hour, and you can tell. It sounds phoned in.

Other tracks are just horrible, particularly the opener "Do you Want Me Dead" which tries to recapture the funny but serious style of past albums, but fails melodically and lyrically. Other tracks just go right by without leaving any impact on the listener, aside from the lyrics, which will occasionally make the listener cringe. THe only song that develops anything close to a hook is "Under a Paper Moon," and that track just sounds like a b-side from the band's previous two albums, which were WAY better than this one.

Nothing sounds worse than bad pop-punk, because like with power pop, it totally depends upon not only its catchiness, but its ability to stick after repeated listens. Rarely has a band dropped off so sharply from one album to the next. Perhaps the band got burned by bringing in guest songwriters, including Tricky Stewart (who is vastly overrated himself) and Pierre Bouvier from Simple Plan, who contributes a song ("Time Bomb') that goes absolutely nowhere. By pop-punk and faux emo standards, this is bad. By party rock standards, it is worse. And when compared to the band's previous work, which up to this point had been excellent, this is downright humiliating. Horrible effort for a band obviously looking to cash in. Another one like this, and it will be time for them to cash out.

Another great collection of catchy,punk/pop songs from this Baltimore, MD foursome. My daughter can't stop listening, so I hear the songs quite a bit too.

All Time Low is one of my favorite bands. I have seen them twice in concert (Dallas 2012, Portland 2014) and they were awesome. Merry Christmas Kiss My Ass is really the only christmas song that I can listen to because it is not cloying or vastly overplayed.
