4.0 excellentDuckLake20 | March 10th 08

Alkaline Trioís sophomore full-length album, Maybe Iíll Catch Fire, marks a strong departure from their previous works in Goddamnit! Much of the latter contained lyrics mostly dealing with the dark side of life, with a dark edge to it but had lighter melodies and long riffs with no vocals. In MICF, the dark side has almost completely taken over in some ways. One song after another expresses self-loathing and hatred for unnamed persons and situations. It expresses a rather murderous thirst for vengeance and violence, such as seen in the fifth track, Sleepyhead (Hey there sleepy smile/I see you brought your bedroom eyes/ Iím assuming you want to keep Ďem/ Iím assuming you reckon you wonít). While still highly witty and at times amusing, it is a much more angry album then their first effort. MICF is also more compact, with less of the long riffs very common in Goddamnit!
Overall, Alkaline Trio morphed their sound quite a bit between their first and second albums, but in the end there is still enough in common that fans of Goddamnit! will almost surely find something to enjoy.
