i hate fast times so much and sometimes i wish someone had the same opinion on it. on the other hand, i love almost here and santi, and the eps and singles previous to that already-named-shitty-record. don't get me wrong, i love pop, but that album is just forgettable and a stain on their discography. (i felt the need to share it)
I'm glad I was fortunate to see this band back in July 2009 when they were on the MTV Sunblock music festival with Never Shout Never, Kid Cudi, THE VERONICAS, and Boys Like Girls. I'd never heard of The Academy Is... until this music festival. I'm sad to hear that they've disbanded. I wish all the members the best of luck in whatever they decide to pursue in their musical careers!
