Perhaps Alkaline Trio's best work to date, "I Lied My Face Off," is a compiliation of four alcohol driven ballads about relationships and happiness.

With all of the original members of Alkaline Trio, this EP is raw, driven, and melodic at the same time. The first song, "Goodbye Forever," was the first song I ever heard by Alkaline Trio. Brilliant. One of my favorite songs to date. The next track, "This Is Getting Over You," features Dan Andriano on vocals. Near the end of the song, Matt Skiba enters blending angelic voices together and creating a sound that they have yet to capture to this date. The lyrics are so electifying, that if you listen to them at the right time, they can make you cry.

Third song, "Bleeder," captures different feelings for different people. Look for this acoustic on their split with Hot Water Music. (That's what I hear anyway.)

Finally, perhaps Alkaline Trio's signature balid of happieness, drinking, and relationships, I Lied My Face Off hit's you with something you've been waiting for this entire EP. With striking lyrics, you don't recover and this leaves you hanging for me. The only solution: Listen to this EP many times.

um, someone just said this, but no it wasn't their original lineup...

and hot water music is covering bleeder.....but i don't think it's acoutic...they're covering "radio" acoustic...

and yes, this is alkaline trio's best release....

classic!!!

hey, ummm, when you said it has all the original members, i know you meant it has glenn on drums instead of mike felumlee or the suicide machines guy they have now, but this MOST definitely did NOT have the original members, as Dan was not an original member. Their first bass player was not Dan.

Josip (November 27, 2001)

this is just great, 4 wonderful songs, everybody should listen to this!

and btw: i'd never trust someone with a "41" in his nickname...go listen to your rap-metal

I think I need to put up my vinyl copy on eBay to pay for Christmas presents. Anyone want to make me an early offer? It's in perfect condition.

No doubt the Trio is emotional, but I wouldn't call this emo. It's way too genuine for that.
