Deas Vail - Birds & Cages

How do you follow up what was possibly one of the most talked-about Christian indie-rock albums of 2007? Quite simply, by making it better; and that is exactly what Deas Vail has done with their latest release, Birds & Cages. Originally on Mark Lee Townsend's indie label Brave New World, the band was recently signed to Relient K-managed Mono vs Stereo, a wise move from the resurrected label.

The Classic Crime - Vagabonds

The Classic Crime returns for their thirrd full-length album release, Vagabonds. The fact that the band had all pre-order proceeds from this album go towards Haiti was very noble of them. RCC's previous release, The Silver Cord was such a phenomenal album that Vagabonds leaves less of an impression due to its smaller size (17 minutes smaller than SC) and some less memorable songs. TCC continues with thought provoking lyrics on this project. "Broken Mess" is a great song (easily the best song on the album) that is saved for last, and it could be interpreted in many ways. Vagabonds does have its moments of greatness in songs like this one, "The Count," "Everything and Nothing" and "Four Chords." "Solar Powered Life" takes the listener back to the 70s with the return of sounds reminiscent of Golden Earring's "Radar Love." Fans of The Classic Crime will, no doubt, like this release (as I have), however, in the end, Vagabonds may leave one favoring The Silver Cord as it was a far better achievement.

Style: Rock / Alternative

The Classic Crime - The Silver Cord

The Classic Crime has been placed into the same sound genre as Jimmy Eat World and Fall Out Boy based on their 2006 debut, Albatross which was a favorite of mine that year. Crime chose Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Chevelle, Incubus) as their producer again for this project. Thankfully, they have musically progressed with a more unique style all their own with Silver Cord that is much more raw and aggressive. Justin DuQue (guitar) has said, "We are not a Christian band. Our lyrics are very positive and hopeful though," and yes, the album expresses some uplifting songs like "The Way You Are," which deals with people who fall into peer pressure, "and I hope to God that he will find his name/ and not listen to his so-called friends/ when they say/ this is the way you are/ Don't let them say." This album sustains the listeners' attention because of the variation throughout all 15 tracks. After the introduction track, the album rocks out to "Just a Man" which can be perceived as an individual who wants to make it very clear that they make mistakes ("all have sinned…and come short of the glory of God" -Romans 3:23). "Gravedigging" is a very catchy hard rock tune which recalls the days of guitar galloping effects found in several Iron Maiden songs. "Abracadavers," another hard rock tune that seems more appropriate as an album opener, is a song that captures the meaning that every human is just as important regardless of looks, financial power, or education as stated by the lead singer, Matt McDonald. While this album this album is far from being an album intended for spiritual growth, it has encouraging implications throughout several of the songs. Silver Cord is an album that can be listened to in its entirety as it's that good. This album ranks among the best so far this year.
