@DaveyBoy, it's called Drown Next to Me, 6:53 long. It's awesome! Might be on the deluxe CD or something, check it out :D

if I believed in having guilty pleasure then this band would be my biggest one. some of their stuff is just so awful (read: most of their stuff is so awful) but fuck me are they ever catchy and fun. oh and I destroy Move Along on drums in rock band. good fucking times.

I think we both have more than a few "guilty pleasures" Aids. And yes, a few of them can be asscociated with Rock Band or Guitar Hero.

I personally really like the album, I'm gonna give it either a 4 or a 4.5 due to the whole album working together as a single piece from one song to the next. I really enjoy the evidence of influence from so many different genres of music, even from 60's music, assuming anyone else's mind can wrap around the Rejects making 60's-esque music. Ritter's vocals matured a lot in his control and flair, as did the band's harmony and style as a whole. They kept the boy-band teenage love lyrics but matured them to the point where the words stay in your head for weeks (think Move Along or Dirty Little Secret), such as "I'll burn both ends until my fire's out. Lost in the darkness I can still scream out" which is basically the most accurate expression for the teenage mindset I've ever seen in a song. Though calling this album pop-punk would be blasphemy, for what it is it does well in the build-up, harmony, and flow, even though it sometimes can't follow through in the climax of the song, which can turn many people off of the album. Die-hard Reject fans will have a hard time accepting this, as DaveyBoy said, but the album standalone is strong almost completely from beginning to end, though it gets lost on the way sometimes, and is definitely worth checking out, especially if you're in the mood for being shocked at what the band put forth this time.

5's
All Time Low
Owl City
Infant Sorrow

So this album's only a 4?

cool story

But seriously if you're digging the 60's thing I'm not even entirely understanding your reference to, try picking up Panic at the Disco's Pretty Odd instead

i still like swing swing, but this is pretty bad. it's actually sort of depressing when you compare
that song to this how far they've fallen. not that they were ever that great, but still. at least
there was some feeling in their music back then. now it just sounds like manufactured crap.

jj actually makes some good points on this album (no comment on his 5s though). I just don't think all of it works as well as claimed.

Many (including myself probably) would have still been happy if they just kept recording albums of consistent catchiness like 'Move Along', but hey, at least they're trying something different... & not totally bombing in the process.

haha, the 5's were back when my sister had partial control over my account, before I realized she was going online and rating unbelievably high for some pretty terrible stuff. I've since changed my password. I saw no need to actually change what she did, but I might do just that now... Explaining my 60's music comparison would be difficult unless you could see the connection in my head. I've actually listened to Panic! at the Disco before and I understand where you're coming from, but I suppose "60's music" is a pretty damn diverse genre, so the whole thought could get lost sheerly because it's hard to understand exactly what 60's music I'm referring to, and while I can't think of any specific 60's songs they sound like, I can easily see the similarities in the progression of some songs on the album to a lot of usic that was popular in the 60's and early 70's.

Ahhh, the old "my sister did it" excuse. Hehehe. We'll take your word for it, this time.

Please include diagram of the connection in your head. ;-)
