    Right, I was listening to Agony & Irony on the way home from work today, and got 7 songs in until my iPod died. My opinion so far is that they've created a fantastic pop album, but a sub-standard Alkaline Trio album. It doesn't seem to have that distinct layer of filth that the likes of Good Mourning, Maybe I'll Catch Fire and even Crimson had.

    I'll listen to it in full tomorrow and give a finalised verdict, with individual track ratings.

    By-the-by, Good Mourning has overtaken self-titled as my favourite Alk3 album.

    Good Mourning has always been my favorite AK3 album. I've always been disappointed in its underratedness. Every Thug Needs a Lady is one of my favorite rock songs.

    I think I might be addicted to In Vein.

    Yeah, Calling All Skeletons and In Vein have that energetic, exciting chorus that everyone craves from a good pop song.

    Also, the hi-hats/synthy guitars in the chorus to I Found Away remind me so much of Honest Mistake by The Bravery. I also wonder if Heather from Teen Idols helps it with the harmonic "whoa-oh's" in that chorus, as she seems to do so in every punky song that contains a part like that.

    I'm starting to agree with this. Except I didn't think Crimson had the layer of filth. This album is okay, but it's definitely just a good pop album. Not a great Alkaline album.

    My album ranking now:

    Good Mourning
    Goddamnit
    Maybe I'll Catch Fire
    Agony and Irony
    Crimson
    From Here to Infirmary

    I don't count the self titled, cause it's a b-sides album and I don't dig it that much.

    OK, without counting S/T, my list would be:

    Good Mourning
    Crimson
    From Here To Infirmary
    Maybe I'll Catch Fire
    Agony & Irony
    Goddamnit

    HUGE difference between us two, but yet the top album remains Good Mourning.

    Hmmm... we agree that GM is the best, agree that A&I ranks in bottom half, and MICF is average. Otherwise, very drastically different. Interesting.

    So apparently "I Found Away" is the next single. I'll be looking forward to that.
