1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing, 9 Feb 2007
This review is from: The All American Rejects (Audio CD)
I can vaguely remember Swing Swing when it was released as a single but I never really took to the song at the time. Fast forward a few years and I hear Dirty Little Secret from their excellent follow-up album, Move Along. Catchy song that made me buy the album, which I really enjoy. I decided I like Move Along so much I have to get my hands on their debut self-titled album. I read all the reviews posted on Amazon by other listeners, most of which are extremely favourable, and the omens look good.

Finally I get hold of the debut, and............

I am extremely disappointed with this album. The songs are bland, repetetive and lack the spark of their second release. Credit to the band for growing as artists and releasing a better follow-up album (which isn't always easy to do) but as a stand-alone album this is extremely poor. There's little variety and certainly no originality.... there's not really anything good about this album at all - it's full of music that's been done a million times before and a million times better by the likes of Blink 182 or Green Day.

If you want to buy an All-American rejects album, definitely get Move Along, which is everything this album isn't. I really like the second album a lot (and listen to it regularly) but I can't stress enough how bad this one is. My review might not please die-hard fans of the band but I do really like their stuff.... as long as it's not off this album!
