Check out "Fast Times at Barrington High" album by The Academy Is... my favorite album by them. Solid pop rock that's catchhy and fun. Their first two album seems to be what everyone loves but in my opinion I don't like a single song from those albums. Fast times I liked 90 percent of the songs. Definetly give that one a chance if you ever listen to TAI again.
Also interested in the new William Beckett album.
Well, I've listened to all 3 albums all the way through. I like certain songs from the albums, just can't see it as a listen to the whole album thing for me.
