  • On its second full-length studio album, SANTI, the Academy Is follows in the emo-goes-pop footsteps of fellow Illinois act Fall Out Boy by adding both gloss and heft to its sensitive-guy, punk-influenced sound. Easing the Academy lads into their more expansive approach is in-demand producer/performer Butch Walker, who gives each track a sterling sheen, as evinced on the wiry "LAX to O'Hare" and the catchy lead single, "We've Got a Big Mess on Our Hands." Although some Academy diehards may be put off by the group's more accessible aesthetic, SANTI shows that a broader palette suits the band just fine.

CMJ (p.43) - "[T]he group pairs singer/songwriter William Beckett's emotive lyrics and rousing vocal range with a straightforward rock kapow."
