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.
