I've been an AK3 fan since a few years ago. I've been following their career since (circa) 'From Here To Infirmary' and I've been enjoying all their stuff. I was one of those who, despite the fact loving their earlier stuff, loved Crimson. Also, I loved Agony & Irony, although being a little less consistent than Crimson. But, wow... This Addiction is a retur to their roots, to the strong and consistent songs.
This Addiction is a huge album. Better on the deluxe edition.

Trio does it again

This album has been released by Heart and Skull (alkaline Trio's new own label) and Epitaph Records.
Now, I am a massive Alkaline Trio fan, and I know what I like in a Trio album... and its this! Definatly buy the CD & DVD, not only do you get the new album and bonus tracks including acoustic versions of some of their new ones and 2 extra, but on the dvd disc you get their live performance in Las Vagas. Songs from all their other albums, with songs like 'Calling all Skeletons' and 'Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss' from Agony and Irony to the classics of 'Lied My Face Off' and 'Nose Over Tail'. If you havn't seen the Trio live yet, that will give you a good taster of what it would be like.
On to the album, yes its very different to past albums, but it goes back to more punk roots, sure some say experimentation is bad, but we need it to move forward in music. I will say Matt Skiba is great at complex lyrics and metaphors in his songs, and it seems that he has taken a step back from in and used more direct and simple lyrics and catchy chorus and focused on the music.
As every album the Trio has done, there is something for everyone.

Fine return to form

I'll be honest this was Alkaline Trio's last chance with me, i didn't find anything wrong with their previous two records per-se (2005's Crimson and Agony and Irony from 2008) but they just lacked whatever it was that made me fall in love with this band in the 1st place so i had a last chance saloon feeling about this self released outing.
Lead single and title track This Addiction which was released around month ago in return for advertising space on your social networking page (nice trick there) reeks of FHTI/Good Mourning-esque riffage and will have you singing along for a couple of hours atleast, although the repetitivness of the chorus can wear thin.
The rather cheesily titled Dine Dine My Darling is another catchy, stuck in your head for a week typical trio song, nothing much to report, good track.
Lead Poisoning, track 3 of 11 and my personal favourite from the record seems to take a step back into the Maybe I'll Catch Fire era and its a welcome return for me, look out for a little surprise at the end of the song which will have you grinning from ear to ear in bemused joy.
I don't have time nor space to review every track so i'll leave it at that, just be prepared for a stylistic journey through every previous album asthe band merge the old with the new and in my mind succeed in keeping everyone happy.
Just beware of the joke-getting-old song titles and some dodgy lyrics and you should find this an enjoyable album with a few failings but a definate step in the right direction.
