“Goddamnit” still isn’t an album that people will point to as groundbreaking or anything, but overall it’s a very solid effort with a couple of really good punk/rock songs. San Francisco has a nice vibe to it and songs like Southern Rock and Trouble Breathing are actually really good songs.
With their debut, Alkaline Trio shows they are here to stay and not just another punk/pop or punk/rock band that’s in it just because they can. They take themselves seriously enough to create and produce real music.
