The descriptor has continued to haunt the group with comparisons to Blink 182 and Green Day. However, with each album the band continued to stray further from those copycat beginnings. AAR’s newest album, Kids in the Street, manages to continue to hold true to the Rejects’ sound, with their typical less-than-deep lyrics and frontman Tyson Ritter’s cracking voice. Meanwhile, the band has pushed its musical style further from its origins with more screaming, more revving guitars and a lot more glam.
Reviews for Kids in the Street have been decent, at best. However, the current tour has earned serious props for the band’s energy level and mix of new and old songs.
