While this is a ‘safer’ album than its predecessor, it’s far from a step back in musicality and lyricism. This is a band recognising what they love doing, and this is ultimately an album about that band returning to their roots.

Wake Up Sunshine is a return to the care-free romance that made songs from earlier efforts Don’t Panic and Nothing Personal so endearing and addictive.

I'm reviewing this for a friend, and because I was interested in the album, now I'm not an All Time Low fan, I haven't really listened to them, but from what I have heard they seem pretty midde of the road, not great not bad, so this is my first full album of their's, and it was surprisingly good! Now I'm not going to lie, my expectations weren't exactly sky-high, but they weren't below the ground, I had some expectation that I would probably enjoy this, my friend, while she has a questionable ... read more
The best thing I can say about this new All Time Low album is that it isn't 'Last Young Renegade'.
If you've been following All Time Low lately, they've needed a regroup at the drawing board after their mediocre 2017 Last Young Renegade and a lukewarm 2015 Future Hearts.

after the obvious disaster that was last young renegade, i'm happy to see all time low going back to their roots and making some good pop punk music just like the old days. while it could mean they're doing the same thing they already did over 10 years ago, they made it sound classic yet modern.

the first half of the album got me hooked. blackbear being featured in one of the songs surprised the hell out of me but it turned out to be one of my favorite songs from the album. the second half, ... read more
