Review

Sunny punkpop from Chicago comes with Alkaline Trio,
since the start in 97 they have done 5 cd?s with this
new one included,this trio plays modern punk with
roots in the English classic era from bands like
Clash and Skids mixed up with new age American punk
a la Green Day and Bad Religion.

"Good mourning" has more pop influences though than
the punkish attitude from the bands above,there are
two singers in the band-singer,guitarist Matt Skida
and singer,bassist Dan Andriano(sounds like a young
Elvis Costello),they complete eachother very well.

All in all,there are no classic stuff on this album
but it?s a whole lot better than Green day and New
Found Glory which plays in the same division,I think
this album could?ve been a huge hit back in 77 when
this style of music was big but now.....????!!!!

The drumdriven "We?ve had enough" has it?s given
place on parties to come and "If we never go inside"
features some really cool guitar licks.

Okay songs,okay performance,OK album!
