Something To Write Home About (Awaiting Repress)Originally recorded in 1999, The Get Up Kids' second full-length album, Something To Write Home About has all the elements of a perfect emo record; catchy pop hooks, revving guitars and confessional lyrics about confusion, alienation and loss. The angst and need at the center of this music lends the album an aura of youthful naivete, but the Get Up Kids have the songcraft, focus and sincerity to back it up here, giving them the edge on many of their contemporaries.1.

When The World Comes DownLimited Repress Gatefold LP On Clear Vinyl With White And Blue Starburst
The All-American Rejects began writing material for their third studio album in late December 2006 after wrapping up their Tournado tour, and continued through into the new year. But due to further touring and promotion for their second album Move Along, the band did not enter the studio until nearly a year later. This was also the first time lyricists Nick Wheeler and Tyson Ritter tried new methods of writing by "escaping" to various regional areas in North America to conceive new lyrics so that the songs could sound "honest".
The first songs to be written that made it onto the album were "I Wanna", "Back to Me", and "Breakin'". While "I Wanna" was written over a six-month period, with Ritter making constant refinements, the following songs "Gives You Hell" and "Another Heart Calls" were all written during a road trip to Vancouver, Canada, with "Fallin' Apart" and "Mona Lisa (When the World Comes Down)" getting scored in Rabun County, Georgia, the latter of which was recorded live in one take. The album was later named When the World Comes Down as Ritter saw the title track as "a perfect, simple work of art".
The All-American Rejects began recording for When the World Comes Down at Skywalker Ranch in San Rafael, California and later at Barefoot Studios with producer Eric Valentine. The 16-piece orchestra featured on a dozen of the tracks was recorded at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.
In an interview with She Knows Entertainment, Ritter commented "I think When the World Comes Down has been a journey. I was twenty-three when I started writing this record. I'm twenty-four now... people say when you graduate college you figure out who you are. If I had graduated college, this would be that moment – now. I think I was most questioning life when I was getting off the road with Move Along and this record was therapy for me. It's everything I needed it to be for me."1. I Wanna
