The Academy Is... Awesome! Great 3rd record. It's a joy to listen to, really fun. First thing i noticed was William Beckett's progression as a singer. Good vocals on the first 2 LPs, but he's stepped it up with an excellent performance throughout 'Fast Times...'. I heard 'About a Girl' live at the Warped Tour and it's a great track to start the album. The fun continues throughout with highlights for me being 'About a Girl', 'Summer Hair=Forever Young', 'His Girl Friday' 'Rumoured Nights', and 'After the Last Midtown Show'. I've heard it a few times and believe it to be their best work yet. The Academy Is... fans won't be disappointed.

The album is amazing! Probably TAI's best one so far. It's such a clever layout - the songs guide you through high school and the troubles it brings, ending with you graduating and moving into the real world of working 9-5. Truly a brilliant album, really :)

As a big fan of Almost Here and Santi, I was very much looking forward to seeing the progression the band would make in their third album. But unfortunately, their efforts fell short. An album that goes back to the bands high school roots, Fast Times is more of a step backwards in time and in sound...unless you love the sugary pop rock coating that has been a bit more than sprinkled into this record.

Tracks such as "About a Girl", "His Girl Friday" and "Summer Hair = Forever Young" are the particular offenders which will have you pulling your own hair out before you can say 'tooth decay'. That being said, the two star rating is purely for "Rumored Nights" and bonus track "Every Burden Has a Version", which are two of the best tracks Fast Times has to offer. Don't get me wrong, I am still very fond of this band, but I think this album is a failed attempt at fitting in with the popular All Time Low-esque genre of music. But hey, if that floats your boat, definately buy this album. Personally, I'd rather abandon ship and wait for the next one.
