Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

The Academy Is...

Four piece band singing about young love/lust, growing up, and other perennial music topics. But for some reason Fast Times at Barrington High, their best album, contains just enough self awareness to not suck 5+ years down the line.

Sounds like: Something you'd hear on the O.C. or Dawson's Creek, only a few years after they've been cancelled.

Lyrics:

This charade is never going to last,
So pick your poison and pour yourself a glass…
these are the fast times.

Status: Inactive. No wait, doing a reunion tour. Maybe?
