Album/Track, Average Rating (out of five stars, rounded to nearest half), Notes.
Gold: Greatest Hits, ★★★½.
Notes: A relic of my childhood and Disney channel, except I knew them through some cover band or something called A*Teens that went quickly by the wayside. Anyway, I have such an unabashed weakness for disco pop, but the majority of this album was pretty meh. I kept making unfavourable comparisons with The Bangles, which, yeah, different era completely, but whatever. This is my music journal, I am entitled to make whichever inaccurate assessments I choose. Some of the tracks were worth a listen, though, and I know that in one of those rare moments I have a desperate need for pop music in my life, I will appreciate this being in my collection. It'll also be one of those buffer albums that I can play around people who don't listen to pretentious hipster trash unlike me. …

The first thing I said to Lanie when we started this listen was that if this EP sucked, I was going to be super pissed that I paid the $5 to download it. I was pleasantly surprised by at least this song, and decided that I could definitely say at least this track was better than anything on Fast Times At Barrington High, which I liked, especially in comparison to Santi, which I loathed. This song gave me total warm fuzzies inside, because it's so power-ballad-y and William Beckett is kind of made for power ballads from the top of his head to his Steven Tyler mouth to his toes. - Julieann
Like I said to Julieann, it's like they cracked the power ballad code and now The Academy Is... finally know what they're doing, after their past stumbles lead them astray. They're a band really built to do a power ballad and they seemed to be denying themselves. Sure, it's a retro thing to do, but if you can do it awesomely, why the hell not?! - Lanie
