This album does not disappoint whatsoever. True AAR fans will understand that. The first album had some good tracks but it did not help the band stand out. The second album will probably always be their best but this album is unique in its own way. Some songs are better than others but each song on the album is a "must listen" to.
1. I Wanna (4/5) Not their usual lyrics, but very uptempo.
2. Fallin' Apart (5/5) One of their most interesting sounds for a song yet.
3. Damn Girl (4/5) Again, not their usual lyrics but a song you wanna sing to in the mirror.
4. Gives You Hell (5/5) Very very catchy and hateful!!
5. Mona Lisa (5/5). Classic acoustic song! (A.k.a. When the World Comes Down)...the reason for the album's name
6. Breakin' (5/5) Inspirational kind of song. Reminds me of a U2 song.
7. Another Heart Calls (5/5) Their first duet and it doesn't disappoint.
8. Real World (4.5/5) Already introduced into Madden and gets you pumped and doesn't let go.
9. Back to Me (4.5/5) One of the softer songs but great lyrics!
10. Believe (4.5/5) Makes you want to dance!
11. The Wind Blows (5/5) A feeling of blowing in the wind (pretty good lyrics).
12. (Hidden Track) Sunshine (5/5) One of the best on the album. Not sure if it will be on this album but it probably is. Another one of their most interesting songs to listen to.

All in all, I can listen to any of these songs and they have been stuck in my head and probably will for you too!

With this year being packed with so many big artists and groups releasing mediocre music, I was more than relieved to find that the All-American Rejects and 'When the World Comes Down' was one of the few exceptions. This album is great. In many ways, I think this release is more on level with their first release which was very pop-rock orientated with great vocals that only this group seems to be able to pull off. The strength in this release is that each song stands on its own, creating an album that is actually worth buying for every track rather than just one or two. There's a great spread of songs and styles on this release, great vocals, harmonizing and an all-around fun album.

"Damn Girl", "Gives You Hell", "Back To Me" are stand-out tracks because they're mostly upbeat and unlike many alternative/rock bands these days, the lyrics, vocals and instrument backings don't clash with one another. There really aren't any tracks worth skipping and the release leaves you wanting more and even puts a smile on your face. I'm hesitant to say 'When the World Comes Down' is the group's best album yet but it comes pretty close. This was more engaging and better produced than their last album 'Move Along' and offers a little bit (style wise) for everyone. Buy this release -- it's well worth the money and one of the best to come out this year.

AAR's first two cds were awesome and ive been anticipating this one for a long time and it exceeded expectations! Each song was brilliant with a whole new style, some were beautifully written too! The extra cd includes demo versions of five songs (differently preformed) and the cd can also be used online to unlock pictures, videos and more! It is worth the extra money for the extra stuff that you get, it's well eorth it!

I can understand the negative reviews, but only to a degree. Sure, the writing is sophomoric, but it's not always the lyrics that make or break an album. The fact is, The All-American Rejects (AAR) continue to show promise and growth with "When The World Comes Down".

Their last album, 2005's "Move Along" is easily their weakest work to date, full of bland pop songs that don't really offer much in terms of originality and variety. That can't be said of "When The World Comes Down". This album has something for everyone, and it also propels the group forward by incorporating a more experimental approach to AAR's sound.

My picks are "Damn Girl", "Gives You Hell", "Mona Lisa", "Breakin'", "Another Heart Calls", "Real World", "The Wind Blows" and the hidden track, "Sunshine". Eight out of twelve songs isn't bad. I'd add all eight to any AAR compilation.

I can see arguing that AAR's debut from 2002 being musically stronger than "When The World Comes Down", but their debut, again, wasn't as diverse as this album.

Here's to more experimentation and diversity from AAR. "When The World Comes Down" is a display of growth and openness, if not maturity. Tyson is, well, only 24. Just a kid still. He may have more interesting things to write the older he gets. For now, the band, as a whole, is a well-oiled machine of power pop fury. There should be at least three or four top 40 hits from this album.

Here's my comparison chart:

2002 The All-American Rejects: Three and a Half Stars
2005 Move Along: Three Stars
2008 When The World Comes Down: Four Stars

I'll be honest, i completely enjoyed AAR's debut and sophomore album and almost went insane waiting for this to come! And now after weeks after hearing this album, all the waiting was mostly worth it. "I Wanna" was one of the most promising openers i've heard up to date cuz that song completely represented what AAR stands for! Yet with "Fallin' Apart" i didn't quite get hooked, why? It was composed very cheesy. However let's get back to the right track, no problem at all with "Damn Girl" & "Gives You Hell" , tell you the truth "Gives You Hell" deserved every bit of the fame and money it gotten. "Mona Lisa": at least they build up the maturity to put an acoustic song on a studio album yet despite it sounding too folkish it's alright. "Breakin'" feels somewhat tropic and doesn't really reach out to me as memorable, but it's really nothing worth COMPLAINING about. "Another Heart Calls" is by far the most dramatic song on the album, the AAR feature the little known group the Pierces in a song that features smart lyrics & great composition. "Real World" is just plain modern rock that people can still love and me with them. "Back to Me" kind of twists AAR's usual sound and puts it as a slow melody that can basically give anybody a smile when heard. But then the very poor finish up songs "Believe" and "The Wind Blows" approach to the viewers' ears. The chorus of each one doesn't have a nice beat to it while no buildup to any verse, i am very sorry to say as good as most of the album is, it's their first album with some weak tracks.

Songs that really stick out:

"I Wanna", "Damn Girl", and "Gives You Hell"

Songs that i wanna burn down to the ground:

"Fallin' Apart", "Believe", and "The Wind Blows"
