It’s been Four years after the release of their latest album When the World Comes Down, The All-American Rejects has returned with their fourth studio album, Kids in the Street. This album is produced by Greg Wells who produced many big musicians such as Adele, Kelly Clarkson, and One Republic.
From “Swing, Swing” to “Move Along” to “Gives You Hell,” these quartet made a point to make sure their sound is always moving forward and, Kids in the Street was definitely worth the wait. From the opening track, “Someday’s Gone,” the band is letting their fans and all the people in the world know that they’re back and ready to do it all over again.
The band’s musical sound shines through on Kids in the Street as they are able to go from the deeply personal and ballad-esque “Heartbeat Slowing Down,” which is my favorite song, to the straight up rock ‘n’ roll “Walk Over Me”. The Rejects show credible growth on their new record, as well a desire to keep rock ‘n’ roll fun yet honest at the same time.
It’s obvious that The All-American Rejects has produced one of the best rock records of 2012. The Kids in the Street album, featuring the lead single ‘Beekeeper’s Daughter‘ hits stores on March 27, make sure you buy the physical copy of this album, because it is sooooo goooood. (By Seanzha Kemal)
