The Classic Crime - Albatross

Reviewer :
Pär Winberg Format: Album
Release date: 2006-05-23 Year: 2006
Label: Tooth & Nail
Genre: Modern Rock
Producer: Michael Baskette
Artist discography


Tooth & Nail is a label that is keeping their ideals and touch. The Classic Crime is a typical Tooth & Nail band. A profesional melodic, refrain based and well produced modern rock band with an EMO-edge.
The sharp production signed by Michael Baskette (Iggy Pop, Chevelle, Cold) is mighty fine and the band and Matt MacDonald behind the mic delivers a bunch of really good refrains.
Any bands I can compare them with...hmmm... Thrice is one band that comes to mind. A tougher Third Eye Blind another and why not also mention A Change Of Pace and Quietdrive... A really good album in a genre where I am very tough in judging cause there are so many predictable bands out there.
The Classic Crime is NOT one of them. They sit on good melodies, a good singer, a good production and that is all we need right?

The EMO genre is something the band is put under in our database. That is not something I have added. But I do think that they have superb progressive emo-sort of edge added to their modern rock-sound whichis an awesome spice to their sound. As I write - it's very hard to put this band under one genre - and yeah - it's not a pure EMO band, and I don't write that and that is not what the review is about either. I will change the genre in the database though as they ends up under that category automatically. I Love this band though.

Sorry Par. Try listening to the album before calling it "emo."

Great album, but the music is only as emo as Pär Winberg's shirt.

Bengt Rist
I totally agree with Per. This is without a doubt a great record.

LOVE THIS CD! IS the lead singer from another band orginally??

I?m very picky about todays music. A lot of bands, same type sound. Many getting popular with mediocre rock music. The Classic Crime stands out from the rest. When i want to hear quality modern rock music, this one is one of my favorites.
