Alkaline Trio: Good MourningGood Mourning (2003)
Reviewer Rating: 4.5
Rising up from the streets of the Windy City came Alkaline Trio, a three piece pop-punk band of young men with broken hearts, bloody revenge, and a favorite past time of consuming mass amounts of alcohol. Touring their way up from the "just about anyone can play here" Fireside Bowl to the more revered Metro, the band established a steady fan base in Chicago, gaining local popularity while busting out three full length albums along with a few EP's and split with Hot Water Music. After nearly six years of touring and recording three buzz-worthy albums titled, respectively, Goddamit, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, and From Here to Infirmary, Alkaline trio has scrounged up enough money to record their latest effort, Good Mourning, a polished, glossy, pop-punk album that screams from the bottom of its broken heart and sticks its creator's original sound. It's true that Good Mourning is the most radio-friendly album by the band thus far, but anyone who has kept their ears on this band from the beginning would be lying if they said they never saw it coming. Alkaline Trio has become progressively more pop thank punk over the last few years while retaining its original intent (get the anger out.) The reason this album sets the band apart from other acts who have broken into the mainstream with polished-to-perfection recordings is that is album is good, great even.
