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.

It's no secret that The All American Rejects make music that is both cohesive and fun. They have lyrics that deal with fun and relationships without (mostly, there are exceptions) cursing. They don't have overtly explicit lyrics either. In fact, they're never explicit. They manage to put it with music that while it is commercial, is really good and chocked full of talent. Now, Move Along is still their best album to my ears, but this one continues in the vein of that album. There are strong drum beats provided by Chris Gaylor, some really good guitars performed by Nick and Mike, and Tyson sings wonderfully and gives us some bass action! I will say though that if you have their new album, "Kids in the Street", and you were disappointed (which I kinda was), this album is better!

The Music:

1. I Wanna- The song slowly fades in with some synth effects and Tyson and the guitars come in and then the song takes off. This is a good single and it is definitely a good song! The energy that made Move Along so good is here and the passion and emotion is still here as well! The drums are good as usual, but they are at their most epic in the pre-chorus of the song, which happens to also be the best part of the song. Tyson is giving a powerful performance and the guitars are actually kinda low in the mix until the bridge. I couldn't really hear them much. The solo is short, but sweet. It's a good solo! This is definitely a good lead off track. I wouldn't call it a top track by any means, but it's a good song.

2. Fallin' Apart- This one starts off with a nice rock beat. This is definitely a different direction than we saw on the previous album, but I do indeed like how this song came out! The drums take this song to a good level of uniqueness and Tyson's vocals are full of energy!

To me this album beats their latest album and their previous albums. I have heard their first album maybe 3 or so times in full and it's pretty solid but all it talks about is heartbreak. And although Move Along was more rock-oriented and I enjoyed that, the more recent two albums by The All-American Rejects have been more meaningful in lyrics and subject matter it seems to me. The thing that gives this the edge over the new album however, is the fact that the production is better, there are no "nonsensical" tracks on this one and it was their first album after Move Along to sound diversified. I consider it a strength (and I'm sure different people will feel different about this aspect) but this album is also very sentimental in the lyrics. The Rejects have always been heavy on heartbreak and relationships but this one is kinda romantic at times while also touching on stuff about life and death which I thoroughly enjoyed (ex: "Real World", "Believe"). I also feel that when the tracks here are more guitar-based a few of them have some really killer, semi-complicated riffs going on. Nothing extremely earth-shattering, but for the Rejects I'll freakin' keep it (and this album!).

I love (or like) every track here except for maybe "The Wind Blows" which has nice verses but an awfully bland chorus which makes it pretty much an average song to me. I say either get the album as long as you aren't expecting to rock out every other track and instead appreciate some of the ballads too. Otherwise, download what's below.
