It deserves more than 68%. It's a decent summer-record and it's catchy as hell. I think it's at the same level as Hit The Lights new record. Maybe even a little better.

I love "After The Last Midtown Show" but the rest is pretty boring.

i have to strongly agree with the production.
maybe even knock it down a few points, in my book.
it was done very, very bad.
ruined the album for me, even though the album itself isn't bad

It is good for what it is...

...and that is music that is going to played in movie trailers and on the televisions at American Eagle constantly.

Don't get me wrong, that isn't necessarily a bad thing (if you are into stuff like that). I can still find some enjoyment in it.

I enjoy "after the last midtown show," and this is a light poppy album I can run to, but its a horrible step backwards for them.

I don't even feel like this album is the band who recorded Almost Here - and definitely not the band who recorded Santi - it's all very watered-down and boring. I feel like the label talked them into making a marketable sound, even though they were headed in the right direction.

Not one song strikes me - I am just so bummed this album completely lacks motivation. It's lazy and fluffy. Regardless, you nailed it Jules - as always, awesome review. I love it.

I like this album, but it's sort of mindless pop.

good review, but i disagree
Santi was good but it was one of those albums that i had to skip a few tracks
Fast Times keeps me entertained and singing along the whole way through
but then again, i am going into my senior year of high school this month so that might have something to do with that

and FIRST


You're sixteen so it would appeal to you in that matter. No offense but thats the point I believe he's trying to convey.

I hear them somewhere in the album, but it mostly lacks innovation, which they at least tried on Santi.

after a few listens, I've decided this record is just average.
I agree with the review, it wasn't a step up from Santi, it felt more like a step back. But it's still a good, catchy record. "One More Weekend" is my favorite track.
