Catchy, Accessible, yet still holding on to that immature punk sound that we expect of the genre. Not the greatest punk album ever made, but this is what I expect when I hear the word 'punk'. Good job Alkaline Trio, your later albums may not be up to par, but with this you hit it out of the park. 4.1/5
I just recently picked up this record and I have to say it is extremely awesome. Well written and a great first effort from the band as a whole. The best song is San Francisco, with its nicely written guitar line that's poppy, yet unsettling at the same time. Overall the album lacks production, but honestly, that's one of the main reasons this album is so good. Its raw, it?s dirty, it pop. Love it.
