The song rules. Skiba's one of my favorite musicians. I appreciate and "get" the way he writes, and generally enjoy everything he's done. The chorus of this rules. I also like this song because Hunter Burgan from AFI played bass on the record. He's my favorite bassist ever.
I found this quote to be pretty funny: "To be honest, it's not that different from Alkaline Trio, which was somewhat intentional."
I'm fine with that, but i just wish the songs on the last Alk3 album were as good as this one and the stuff on The Hell's EP. I have high hopes for the next one because of all this good new music lately though.
Also, that promo picture of Skiba is hilarious. It's just so ridiculous and weird that I kind of have to give him props for actually taking a picture like that.
I don't really think this song sounds too much like a Trio song? At least, not intentionally. I feel like because he is who he is and Alkaline Trio is what he's known for, it's easy to associate everything he does with that, but this sounds a lot cleaner and more cohesive lyrically than most of his Trio songs. I mean, I don't know, I just couldn't really see this song fitting on a Trio record, not even any of their last 3.
