I am a HUGE fan of the previous three releases. I have listened to this one three times through and I honestly cannot find ONE song that I liked. The harmony and energy that was there before is just GONE. I really hope they revert to what brought them so much success initially. A big thumbs down to the new style. Still love the previous efforts though!

When a band reaches multi-platinum status with a certain style, it is usually best if the band sticks to that style. After all, some of the greatest bands in recent memory have done this with much success (Green Day, Aerosmith, AC/DC, etc). But only a few bands in history have successfully altered their sound dramatically and had great success.

Emo and pop-punk died so rapidly after the overkill and overexposure period of 2004-2006. It was very similar to when hair metal died following the explosion of grunge between 1991-1993. When the smoke cleared and the new phase was over, the previous teenage and twentysomething audience that made these bands platinum had grown older and moved on.

Perhaps AAR sensed that this was destined to be their fate as well (bands like Panic at the Disco and Simple Plan experienced tragically low sales last year despite strong albums). But this attempt to alter their sound is just too drastic and too far away from the way the band used to be. What's worse, these new songs don't have catchy hooks and have received absolutely zero airplay as a result. This was similar to when New Found Glory made their "Coming Home" album a few years back. It didn't matter how good the album was to their longtime fans, because it sounded nothing like the band they once embraced. Now, NFG stormed back a few years later with back to back excellent albums, but they went back to their old style to do it.

This album may please some critics, but it won't please old fans or attract new ones, making it an overall failure.

Be sure to sample this Album before purchasing as this album is very spirited-away from the prior albums and may not be to every-ones liking.

To preface, I can at times be a prisoner of the moment. Thus, I was excited to see that the Rejects were actually finally planning on releasing another album (after an absurdly long wait). As a fan who has been there from the beginnings I have been progressively getting more and more displeased with the Rejects' sound. Sure, I enjoyed the Pop/Rock days that included "Swing, Swing," "Dirty Little Secret," "Move Along," etc. (and still enjoy the random occurence when their songs from the past come onto the ol' iPod) but the good days are way in the past. The identity of this band has completely flip flopped and this album proves it. This album has completely turned off my usual exciting thrill (at least temporarily)I get when new music hits the shelves.

I've been a big AAR fan since the beginning and have been looking forward to this album for quite some time now. I am so disappointed. This doesn't even sound like AAR. They have completely abandoned everything that made them great for a teeny pop sound that gives me a headache. The choruses are downright horrible (Fast and Slow). I hear some people praising their "maturity" on this album, but maturity alone does not equal good sound here. There is only one good song on the whole album (Bleed Into Your Mind). The album is so disjointed and goes in so many different directions that it seems confused with itself. I have forced myself to listen to the whole album multiple times in hopes that it would somehow grow on me, but no matter how hard I try this album is just not enjoyable. I can only hope that this horrible excuse for an AAR album is a stop-gap to something greater. Kids in the Street will fill you full of little lies and leave you hungry for the truth.

I don't know any other word to describe it...this album has extremely dissapointed me. The track Kids In The Sreet is ok, at best. Beekeeper's Daughter is pretty good, more of a traditional AAR sound. But the rest of the album is a complete wash. Their last album made me remember why I fell in love with them years ago with their very first album, but this new one is just terrible. Sorry AAR but I just can't get into it. I've tried. Listened multiple times now, and I just can't do it. Very sad day for me, I was SO looking forward to this album!

This album is such a deviation from what made them popular to begin with (similar to career arcs such as Goo Goo Dolls)that discussing this album is like comparing apples (their early work) to oranges (their later work). If this album were released by an anonymous band, it very well could have rated higher. But coming from AAR, it stinks.

I have nothing against changing your sound and all artists have to do it so listeners don't get tired. This album however is a piece of junk. The singer sounds like he's drunk through most of it and the lyrics have no substance. The music sounds like it was written on the spot in the studio with no thought or effort behind it. I think the only reason people are actually liking this album is because the producer did a good job with making it sound like a professional album. You strip the production and I bet you would be completely embarrassed for these guys. I have been a normal fan of each past album and laughed after listening to this all the way through. I am right now on my third listen, trying so hard to like it and I just can't but I paid for it and want my money's worth... Their catchy element is gone and so is their energy. Save your money and only purchase the single and maybe another song or two. The album is definitely not worth buying.

Compared to their prior albums...all I can say is I'm disappointed. The harmonies sound out of tune and some songs are simply ugly. Make sure you sample the album before you buy.
