The Classic Crime - Albatross

On their website, Matt MacDonald, vocalist for Tooth & Nail newcomers The Classic Crime, says he wants his band to have stats like the albatross, a bird with a fourteen foot wingspan and an eighty year life span. It’s an impressive and gutsy goal, but unfortunately, neither of those words can rightfully describe their debut album, Albatross.

The Classic Crime sounds eerily similar to Fall Out Boy… MacDonald’s voice, the musical arrangements, everything. Compare "All the Memories" to Fall Out Boy’s "Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down," and to call them the "Christian Fall Out Boy" by no means sounds like a stretch. For those unfamiliar with mainstream’s latest media child, Fall Out Boy is an aggressive four-piece pop/rock outfit with a knack for writing melodic, yet toe-tapping tunes. There are differences between the two acts, of course (The Classic Crime is a bit more intense), but it’s similar enough at times to make you do a double take.
