"Summer Hair", "Cougar", "Rumored Nights", "And His Girl Friday" are excellent. It doesn't match Santi. But Fast Times is my favorite pop release (Haven't heard Valencia, don't shoot me) of the year so far. It's simple, it's likable. That's what I want at the moment, and that's what I got. I heard most of this at the beach, which was perfect. Despite the high school lyrics, the music has really been upped. I like the riffs on most of the tracks. TAI impressed me with this. I was expecting not to like it. Good review though. You hit most of it right on the mark.
