10. Way Less Sad (OK Orchestra, 2021)

Way Less Sad’s production is significantly less interesting, just being typical AJR. The lyrics about not being happy but way less sad don’t really stand out in the grand scheme of things either. Just not a very interesting cut overall.”

9. Woody Allen (Living Room, 2015)

“This album has such a unique sound. I’m not exactly a music critic so I can’t quite articulate it, but you know an AJR song when you hear it and every single one is compelling, distinct, and just incredible.”

8. Bang (OK Orchestra, 2021)

“Bang is one of the most creative song’s they’ve made in a while and I’m happy to see they’re releasing a song! I memorized this song a year ago and I can still sing every word perfectly”

7. Infinity (Living Room, 2015)

“An absolutely heartwarming video and song, really. I heard this song a couple months ago while procrastinating, and I’ve been hooked ever since. You guys are really great and create some truly amazing songs and covers.”

6. Come Hang Out (What Everyone’s Thinking, 2016)

“They are amazing performers, songwriters, musicians, and people, not to mention completely original and creative. Their music, while being fun and energetic, tackles important and relatable issues about growing up and actually living in the real world.”

5. I’m Not Famous (The Click, 2017)

“I’m Not Famous is a soulful number whose production I enjoy, but falls flat with annoying lyrics about Jack bragging about how he’s not famous, which, uh…might wanna reconsider that song, bud.”

4. I’m Ready (Living Room, 2015)

“The line “I’m ready” appears multiple times in the song. The line was taken from the popular children’s TV show,’Spongebob Squarepants’, and is said by Spongebob (The main character) himself. Two of the main lines in this song are “Tell me that you’re ready…” and “Are you ready for tonight”, Referring to the the main idea of taking a girl home. in the first verse of the song, the line “Watch you playing and playing and playing these guys”, inferring that the girl is a player. That statement is later confirmed in the pre-chorus, when the song states “I won’t forget you, but I may Forget your name”, referring to the fact that it did only last one night.”

3. Overture (The Click, 2017)

“A somewhat recurring theme in AJR’s music that started with this album, combining various elements of the tracks on The Click to give a taster for what is to come. And if this is meant to be it…in the nicest way I can put it, it is incredibly accurate to what the group will give you.”

2. Sober Up (The Click, 2017)

“Sober Up features Rivers Cuomo of Weezer fame, surprisingly (speaking of which, I gotta review Van Weezer soon)! But here, it’s almost hilarious, his part — you can that there probably wasn’t much communication between him and AJR because it sounds like he’s just singing a part of a completely different song; they don’t match up at all. The mediocre lyrics that discuss childhood love don’t support the faulty structure of the song either. The only good thing is the production, with the nice strings at the beginning being a highlight.”

1. Weak (The Click, 2017)

“This song says weakness is normal. To me I needed to hear that. I always treated weakness as a disease and denied myself times where I needed to feel weak to become stronger.”
