SANTI is definitely funkier than Almost Here, i personally quite liked the moodiness and im not sure the lyrics are quite as poetic, however, there are some brilliant songs on this album. the debut single, we've got a big mess on our hands, sums up the album quite well so if you like it you'll probably like most of the album. some people said that almost here sounded very like fall out boy, so in a way it seems TAI have found their own sound.
its worth buying, and if you like these and fall out boy its worth checkin out paramore, they're on the same label

Really good album, but is a big change from theyr'e debut album, there isn't quite the same vocals, but the songs pack a bit more of a punch to replace that. Dunno don't get me wrong is a good album, but they have lost some of the originality they had. If you like the all american rejects then this is similar in sound.

The first thing people will say about this is it's not as good as the first, which it might not be - it's your opinion.

However, looking at this album for what it is, it is a great piece of pop-rock, which is what it unashamedly is. Every song is 10/10 except "Everything We Had" which is really bad and sounds like a Westlife B-Side. The rest just sound like old-skool but beefed up TAI - great!

Maybe the sligh change in style is due to Tom Conrad's departure, who knows? All I know is I just can't get "Bulls In Brooklyn" out of my head no matter how hard I bloody try!

i was so excited for this album to come out.... 14 April 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
okay first of all i have to say, the academy is... is one of my favorite bands. i was so excited for this album to come out. i even pre-ordered it and everything.

honestly, i have to say it isn't an album you'll fall in love with the first time playing it through. but after playing the album over a couple of times, it just hit me, WOW! TAI hasn't dissappointed us.

the band's sound has definitely changed from their debut album, which i have to say i prefer, almost here. will's voice is like always amazing but also more unique sounding, and over all the music it self has a different sound. the songs aren't ones to automatically stick but give them a chance, and you'll be singing them for the rest of the week.

like always though, amazing lyrics

my personal favorites songs are:

neighbors

bulls in brooklyn

LAX to o'hare

same blood

we've got a big mess on our hands [i agree, this was a great choice for their first single]

Great improvement from last album. 9 April 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Santi is different from Almost Here, in a good sense. The songs are catchy, melodic, and well-written. William's voice has that slight, smooth melody to it in this album, making it all the better. The guitar work is superb. Unlike Almost Here, which had most songs about getting signed and getting their music out, this album shows that the band is becoming more aware of their skin and what their sound is.

Same Blood - 9/10 Great lyrics, nothing really to point out.

LAX to O'Hare - 10/10 One of the best songs, catchy chorus and clever lyrics.

We've Got a Big Mess on Our Hands - 10/10 Good choice as the single. I especially love the second verse.

Sleeping with Giants (Lifetime)- 9/10 Somehow they make singing "You've got to find a way" repeatedly sound absolutely great.

Everything We Had - 8/10 I have yet to really love this song, but William's voice is beautiful in it.

Bulls in Brooklyn - 7.5/10 I feel like I've heard the verses before, the beat's been done before, but the chorus makes up for it.

Neighbors - 10/10 A good song for singing along to, driving around or whatever, almost like a summer night song to me.

Seed - 8/10 Good tune, 'nough said.

Chop Chop - 10/10 My favorite out of all of the songs. It's terribly catchy, and it makes you want to clap along to the chorus. Amazing song.

You Might Have Noticed - 10/10 The lyrics are just flawless, it wouldn't be Santi without this song.

Unexpected Places - 10/10 Perfect ending to a great album, it tops it off nicely. "Is this the way to carry on" is the best and most frequently sung line.

Overall, I love this album very much. One of the more decent albums that I own. I highly suggest you look into it. And yes, I'm a teen without a credit card.

Ok So... 12 April 2007
By Julie House - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I came on here all pissed of at Rolling Stone for giving this album only 2 1/2 stars, which was the same damn rating they gave Weird Al's new album BTW. I was going to rant about how this album is AMAZING and how RS writers are idiots. Then I saw the reviews that were already posted here and realised everyone else already knew how good SANTI is. Thank GOD!

I am so proud of William and the boys. This is a HEARTY album with a great feel that only TAI can offer you. William's voice is orgasm worthy and although the guitars are amazing... the drum beats own this album and put you right over the top. The high hats bring goosebumps. I had to listen to it about four times before I began to feel the groove and the flow of the album...but once i got it...I GOT IT.

You will get it too.

Buy it Damn it.

Santi equals Love. 11 April 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Personally, It took me awhile to get used to the new beats, Almost Home was better, and From The Carpet had slower beats but The songs on Santi are still 'whoah'

Same Blood- Good Lyrics, Not a fan of the slow beats.

LAX to O'Hare- Awesome catchy lyrics, catchy beats

We've got a big mess on our hands- Great choice for a single, like the lyrics

Lifetime- Ahh, couldn't have a better song, spectacular lyrics,esp. chorus

Everything we had- Okay, I like the slow beat

Bulls In Brooklyn- Awesome, same type of thing as LAX to O'Hare, great chorus

Neighbors- Okay, good lyrics, easy to keep the beat to

Seed- Boring, good if you don't hear any other songs from the CD first

Chop Chop- I like the beginning, rodeo-y i guess, love the lyrics

You Might Have Noticed- Love Bill's voice in this, okay lyrics, love the beat and chorus

Unexpected Places- Funky bob your head beats, one of the good songs on the CD

Skeptical at first, but an AMAZING album. 22 April 2007
By A. Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After reading several reviews of Santi, I was rather skeptical about the quality of the album. I mean Almost Here was such an amazingly good cd that I thought it would be near impossible to top. However after purchasing and listening to the cd about 20 times my mine has been thorougly changed. However it is a much different Academy Is... than in Almost Here. Their sound has evolved from a more poppy sound to a little bit harder and edgier. Overall it is an excellent evolution because Santi is an excellent album.
