What is the Classic Crime? History is filled with heroes that made the ultimate sacrifice and martyrs who died for their cause. Whether their actions were viewed as "criminal" in their day was irrelevant. From those fighting against injustice to those who stood up for the folks who don't fit in, dying for one's beliefs or one's art is the Classic Crime. "Music has a profound effect on the listener. It even has the power to lift spirits and change lives," reasons Classic Crime singer Matt MacDonald. "If we can see our music change a life for the better, than we've been paid in the kind of way we hope to be."
The Classic Crime's follow-up Acoustic EP: Seattle Sessions threatens to change lives in such a way with the sheer expanse of its scope, conjuring the most brilliant & raw moments while alternately sounding refreshingly original. The vocals are unique, the lyrics are compelling, and the boys' hearts are all in the right place. Tours with Mest, Anberlin, Emery and Scary Kids Scaring Kids certainly haven't hurt.

This cd got a lot more hype than it deserved. I love the classic crime, but this cd was a big let down. I felt that the songs were below average compared to their normal songs.
