Rolling Stone (p.71) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] the sinuous groove of 'Bleed Into Your Mind' and the sweetly vulnerable orchestral ballad 'Affection.'"
Entertainment Weekly (p.73) - "[With] blasts of pure blissful oxygen like 'Somebody's Gone' and 'Beekeeper's Daughter'..." -- Grade: B
Alternative Press (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith everything from freewheeling bar rock and funked-up pop to crystalline, nostalgic '80s rock and brush- and string-heavy jazz....It's easily their most ambitious -- and praiseworthy -- effort to date."
Billboard (p.36) - "[With] a more bombastic brand of pop....'Fast and Slow' and 'Walk Over Me' swing like the All-American Rejects of yore..."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "KIDS IN THE STREET kicks off with a couple of right bangers -- the angsty power-pop of 'Someday's Gone' and the 'Gives You Hell'-esque stomp of 'Beekeeper's Daughter.'"

The All-American Rejects take their sound two new places on their fourth album, Kids in the Street. Working with Katy Perry and Adele producer Greg Wells, the album finds the band looking to change things up as they continue evolving their sound to reflect their growth as both artists and people. Fans of the band can get a sneak peak at the album through the two leadoff singles, "Beekeeper's Daughter" and "Kids in the Street," which will give listeners a taste of the more cohesive, narrative sound the Rejects are going for.
