Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the fourth studio album from the Alt-Rock band. The album was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Greg Wells, who is known for his work with Adele, Katy Perry, and OneRepublic, among many others. According to lead singer Tyson Ritter, the album is very different to their past releases - including When the World Comes Down, in which the band experimented, sound-wise. Kids In The Street features the first single 'Beekeeper's Daughter'.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1979 April 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Back in 2002 when AAR first released their debut they reminded me of some 1980's bands that I grew up on as a kid. Of course, they were, and still are, the direct descendents of Blink 182 right down to the note. I like the band, but when I read that they are someone else's favorite band I cringe. I mean, how can a band that is so derivative of other bands before them be someone's favorite band?

Sadly, over the past decade, AAR have not really lived up to the potential I at first thought they had. They have pretty much played it safe, and they only released four albums over the past ten years. Strangely, for a band that consists of guys who grew up in Oklahoma they sound very L.A. They do not embrace their roots like Kings of Leon. And so, AAR remain an enjoyable snack rather than a full course meal.

This is not to say that the band has not tried, because they have. Beginning with their last album "When The World Comes Down", they started playing with their sound, tweaking it here and there with good results. Lyrically, the band is crippled by adolescent desires and college partying. They do not reach for something more meaningful or spiritual, they just stick with childish and naive lyrical outlooks. It is this alone that arrests the true development of this band. They could have been so much further along by now. I mean, Pink can run circles around these guys lyrically.

So here is "Kids In The Street", their fourth album. I bought the deluxe version with the bonus tracks. I went back and listened to all the other AAR albums to keep my criticism fresh. I listened to the new album over the past three weeks multiple times. I gave "Kids In The Street" more than enough time to marinate in my brain cells.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING June 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been an All American Reject fan ever since their first album, Swing Swing. This album DID NOT disappoint me at all! I listen to this album constantly. I honestly do think The All American Rejects are getting better with time. They've always been great, but they just got better. Get this CD if you want to experience them again; if not, you're missing out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better with Time April 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Since the AAR's first released Swing Swing, and their impressive debut, I've waited for them to hit a full length, multi-track stride encore. They've had mega hits (Move Along, Dirty Little Secret,Gives You Hell) but they really haven't had an end-to-end complete effort.

With Kids in the Street- I believe they have done so.

I also have to admit that the first time I listened to the CD, I wasn't impressed. Then I listened to it more- drawn back against efforts (such as the disappointing release by Neon Trees or the Shins) and listened to it more.

On Sirius XM, their recent release 'Walk over Me' is garnering play time. I personally love Gonzo (although I'm not sure it has commercial appeal), and think both 'Heartbeat Slowing Down' and 'Fast & Slow' are additional possible commercial successes.

However, while '1 hit' will ensure the viability of a 5th CD, the story of the work is the continuity of excellence between the first and last tracks- They're just all good. It's an evolutionary- but not revolutionary- departure from the sound they first exhibited on their debut... just as 'Achtung Baby' was for U2.

Will this be as transformational to AAR as 'Achtung Baby' was U2? Probably not commercially (I don't hear a track of the some evocative power as 'One', for example), but - as U2 notes- if not for the travails creating Achtung Baby (and surviving to create it) the band may have disbanded.

The rest is history- and here's hoping to many more fantastic AAR releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Love with everything AAR produces May 7, 2012
By emma310
Format:Audio CD
Being a dedicated AAR fan, especially captivated by "When the World Comes Down", I was anticipating something similar, if not even better, to the last album. When I first heard Kids in the Streets, I was confused and a bit disappointed. But as a few of the songs became stuck in my head (Kids in the Street, Heartbeat Slowing Down, Affection), I decided to give the album another listen and that is when I fell in love. AAR truely has a way of combining catchy beats with meaningful, emotional lyrics that gives me goosebumps. This album sounds absolutely different than the first and Move Along, but the same goes for "When the World Comes Down", which is when their music started to have a more mature, emotional and chilling feel to it. And I appreciate that and can't stop listening.

3.0 out of 5 stars I've waited 4 years... for this?! April 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now before I "rant" on this, I'd like you all to know that I was aware their sound had changed and I was completely open to it. In fact, I believe that changing your sound when your creative thoughts change is a good thing and helps musical development. Now, that said, this album isn't good because the music isn't good; not because it's different. I'd say about half of the album is good/tolerable although the rest is either boring, repetitive, and just both in addition to having odd vocals and poorly written lyrics/instrumentals. On that note of instrumentals, I noticed that there is a lot of synthesizer which is so heavy at times it almost sounds like an 80s song and really overshadows the real instruments in the songs. I was also surprised for find several curse words including the f word twice in one song (maybe more, I switched tracks after that) I'm just very disappointed and my trust has been shaken (which is what lead me to buy this without listening to it first which I normally do.) I really hope AAR gets their act together after this if not for the poor songs but for the language considering how they've always been pretty age friendly up till now. Anyway, I suppose it's unfortunately off to BuyBacks to see what I can get. I hate to have an incomplete set and lose the latest album of one of my favorite bands, but this just isn't worth the money I paid or even close.

UPDATE:
After listening a little more I'm considering increasing my rating to 3 stars. I'm still disappointed with the album, some of it's songs, and it's lyrics but it's a little better then I initially though. I also still don't think this album is worth buying and I stand by what I said but it does deserve 2 1/2 or MAYBE 3 stars; no more though.

3.0 out of 5 stars really?
Inside pamphlet was not worth me buying the physical copy and usually did not work in my car stereo. Music was not nearly as good as their debut album.
