2011 album from the Southern California-based Alt-Rock band. Written during the latter half of 2009 and most of 2010, the record was produced in Los Angeles by Dave Sardy, who also produced albums by Oasis, Band Of Horses, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother, and Autolux. They have earned their reputation as an aggressive touring band, known for playing more than 350 dates in support of their debut album release, supporting Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, the Ting Tings, and many others.

While the sophomore slump sinks a lot of artists, The Airborne Toxic Event sneaks past it with the 2-disc version of All At Once. If you're a fan of the first album, you're likely asking - is this one as good? Yes, and no. If you're a new fan, you're asking, should I start here? No - definitely start with the euphoric, engaging, self-titled debut.

All At Once is a darker, slower, denser, more textured, more personal, more emotional album. While the first album showcased massive, melodic pop that aimed for the stadium rafters, this one is more of a sit-down in your seats, theater album. Some of the arrangements recall the melodies of Somewhere Around Midnight and Gasoline from album one. I also heard echoes of Pink Floyd (Money), Billy Joel (Piano Man) and lots of Bob Dylan as the album progressed. In many ways, Airborne's album 2 is to album 1 as The Killers' rootsy, gutsier Sam's Town was to the slicker, more successful Hot Fuss.

The real treasure here is Disc 2, a DVD that features the entire album re-imagined as one-take, live acoustic videos. Dare I say, these versions sound better. They breathe more. They're not as thickly produced. Every vocal and instrument is crisp and crackles with energy. And the one-take videos are very imaginative: see the band perform on a city bus, in a sleeping girl's bedroom, on a white background, in a club, in a cathedral, on a stairway, on a carousel, on a soundstage, with the Calder quartet and children's choir from All I Ever Wanted. The dancers from their official video add percussion - even crystal wine glasses are added as instruments. Sonically, it is incredible (the sound has been mixed to studio-quality) and since they're all simple performances (the camera locks in and rarely moves), it doesn't hurt that every member of the band is easy on the eyes - no matter what your preference. Now HOW will I get Disc 2's superior soundtrack onto my iPod?

The Airborne Toxic Event produces an excellent follow-up to their self-titled previous effort. They explore many of the themes they explored in their last CD, but much more emotionally and deeper. The music also reflects this and has less of the jumpy/peppy feel and guitar riffs that represented their last effort. The band goes deeper most incredibly though, especially in highlighting the changing nature of life and many of these changes that one must deal with in youth and love. The lyrics don't necessarily go into deep metaphors or contain hard-to-dig-out meanings, but this is to their credit. Effortlessly and simply grand feeling is brought out with infinitely accessible words and magically rising and falling music which is an excellent mix of sounds and instruments. The band does go fairly deeply into political statements in this CD with some pieces, but the songs are good and do not overpower the overall broad scope of the album.

The overall gem of this album I would definitely consider to be All I Ever Wanted. Filled with such determination, love, and realism. Other incredibly notables are Changing and Numb.

It's an incredibly well put together album with excellent songs and that I'd recommend to both fans and newbies alike. You will definitely feel something listening to this work.

I first discovered this band when I heard a track from their new album on the radio. I listened to their third studio album pretty heavy and then decided to check out their second album. There are a lot of great tracks on All At Once. My favorite are probably track 10: All I Ever Wanted and track 11: The Graveyard Near The House. Even with those two I listen to the full album all the time. The fact that the lead singer is a novelist makes it so that the lyrics have more depth to them than a lot of other bands. Some may not like or care about that bit, but it is a big win for me.

I love the Airborne Toxic so much that I own the first cd, than bought the repackaged album with the actoustic versions. Than I got the Live at Disney Hall cd and dvd which was also great. When I compare All At Once to these other cds it comes up just a tad bit lacking from the first cd which I consider a masterpiece.

What I did enjoy about All At Once is it seems to focus more on the music which in my opinion is the strength of the band. They are all incredible artists. I actually prefer the DVD versions of the songs to the cd as it seems the music standout more. The songs are solid but the lyrics are not as strong as the original cd and thus the 4 stars.

If you loved the first cd than you will enjoy All At Once. It is just my opinion that this is not the Airborne Toxics best work but still worty of any cd collection.

My Keyser loves this group and I like them more every time we play this CD. Brings back good memories of Lolla and Bonnaroo. There is a lot more to enjoy here than the single they almost overplayed on the radio.

There is so many different feels and riffs that remind me of different styles of music, however just when you think you are listening to a sample of Muse, you are changed direction with sounds of music like modest mouse, and then again neil diamond! Just so many different amazing textures and beats! I cant explain it! I love it!!
