Good Mourning is the handsome if dark-eyed offspring of the deliberately melodic From Here to Infirmary LP and Alkaline Trio's more raucous earlier work. Whether or not the band "sold out" (or whatever) when Infirmary arrived with the stamp of ambitious indie Vagrant, the set nevertheless seemed forced. It's an album that kills with catchiness.
Punk-Rock Alkaline Trio. Band Name Alkaline Trio. Album Name Good Mourning. Released date 13 May 2003. Labels Vagrant Records.
Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Chicagos Alkaline Trio rip off more playful emo punk on Good Mourning, as Matt Skibas profane poetry yields another set of sad but very fun songs. The bands overt pop instincts stayed were muted on past albums, notably their debut, Goddamnit!, but Mourning isnt nearly so abrasive. Draped in silky production, the bands painful odes to lost love and bittersweet joy lose some edge (witness the toothless opener, "This Could Be Love").
Good Mourning features a slight departure from the earlier Alkaline Trio sound. The album makes use of the occasional layered guitar parts and contains a somewhat darker mood than their previous work. Of note is the different vocal styles featured on the album. Matt Skiba provides a somewhat raspy tone that fits the faster standard punk songs, whilst conveying a sense of emotion that is key to the lyrical context. Dan Andriano makes use of a slower more well-rounded style that puts greater focus on the instrumental performance, although his vocals are still quite commanding.
Good Mourning is the fourth studio album by Alkaline Trio, released May 13, 2003 on Vagrant Records. The album marks the first appearance of drummer, Derek Grant, described by vocalist/guitarist, Matt Skiba, as "a whole new influence. During recording, both Skiba and vocalist/bassist, Dan Andriano were ill. Skiba describes the album as sounding "bigger, deeper and rawer" than its predecessor, From Here to Infirmary.
