I've got a big, fat fucking bone to pick with you, Alkaline Trio. In case you haven't heard, I'm sick and tired of waiting to hear "Radio." I wish you would have swapped some new songs for "Nose Over Tail," "Clavicle," and all of Goddamnit. Wait, that tour already happened -- but Maybe I'll Catch Fire and/or From Here to Infirmary would have done nicely.
There's no way a band that has released eight albums can please everyone. Consensus seems to be that the band's first few albums were the best, with the two records preceding My Shame Is True being the worst. Fortunately, the goth pop-punkers stuck to some of its best material, even if the band flubbed the lyrics.
Yeah, that was awkward. That's my main bone to pick with you, Matt Skiba.
