Th only song I'd heard previously was the title track, and it was awesome. Rest of the album so far is also as great.

I didn't even buy/download Agony and Irony. I originally intended to, but decided not to even bother.
I'm gonna trust your word on this one, Cakes!

Of course I'm sure Alkaline Trio will probably never be as good as I thought they were when I was in ninth grade, but

EDIT:
Oops, I didn't mean to post that last fragment of a sentence. I started writing it and kinda forgot where I was going with it, but I guess I'm obligated to finish it now.

Of course I'm sure Alkaline Trio will probably never be as good as I thought they were when I was in ninth grade, but I still find them enjoyable from time to time and am interested in hearing the new album.

Are you addresing me? And if so, why would you call me cakes?

And maybe the Alkaline Trio aren't as "awesome" as I thought they were in high school, but I can still go back and listen to their previous albums with a ton of enjoyment (excluding A&I). They were one of those bands I listened to as I was really "developing" into "who I am", if you know what I mean, so they'll always hold a firm place in my eyes. To me, Agony and Irony was like that one night one of your best friends ditched you early at a party when you were drunk, and you ended up sleeping on someone's lawn. Yeah, you're pissed at that friend, but you remember the good times and realize he can easily make it up to you. And from what I hear of this new album, that's exactly what the Alkaline Trio are fixin' to do.

To whittle it down: Agony and Irony was a rough time in an otherwise very good relationship between me and the Alkaline Trio. However, I'm quite willing to forgive and forget.

My opinion of Alkaline Trio is:

Why listen to Alkaline Trio when you can listen to Teenage Bottlerocket?
They sound exactly the same, but they're faster, catchier, and I don't have to be (too) ashamed of listening to them.

So cool, I'm into killing time with you
So cool, with all the stupid things we do
And I know that you like it too
Baby you're so cool
So please say that you'll stay
Tell me that you'll never go away

Crack my head open on your kitchen floor
To prove to you that I have brains
Meanwhile tin men are led by little girls
Down golden roads that lead to nowhere
Fine time to fake a seizure

I would give you 100 to 1 odds on that right now.
You got a paypal? Because I will ask them.

Also, Alkaline Trio was okay for a while, and then I got bored.

Ask away, but I demand proof.
Also my bank account has been closed due to like thousands of dollars worth of debt.

Funny how you get bored of Alkaline Trio but insist that a band that plays a similar type of music but with less variety is better.
I'm an asshole.

They're pretty repetitive, and I don't listen to them too often, but they're very enjoyable to me when I want some fast, catchy, simple pop-punk.

Teenage Bottlerocket sound nothing like Alkaline Trio. Teenage Bottlerocket are a pretty boring, generic band that I get tired of listening to after 2 songs. Alkaline Trio used to be quite brilliant.

I really should hear the new album.

First of all, it's retarded to compare bands on something as subjective as the lyrics to two songs. Especially when Teenage Bottlerocket purposely uses simple lyrics. I think it's obvious Ray and Kody aren't trying to be the next Black Schwarzenbachs. They're just trying write catchy pop punk songs, which they pull off perfectly.

Secondly, Alkaline Trio writes some of the worst, most corniest lyrics I've ever heard. Honestly, I wasn't even sure what side you were on in your post at first, because the lyrics you posted for Alkaline Trio are horrible. "Crack my head open on your kitchen floor/To prove to you that I have brains" That's so dark, man. I think I'll write those lines on my notebook so all the kids at school see how disturbed I am!

You could listen to catchy pop punk songs by any pop punk band. All you really need is Singles Going Steady and It's A Girl! The fact that Teenage Bottlerocket don't try to do anything interesting or original is a piss poor reason to claim that they're better than Alkaline Trio. I'm not going to be so ludicrous as to suggest that Alkaline Trio have done anything startlingly original, but at least I find their music interesting. And I'll be the first to admit that they have some corny lyrics, but I also think they have some pretty good ones. Sure, they're not the next Schwarz Blackenbachs, even though they probably wish they were, but even he wrote some lame songs like "Bad Scene, Everyone's Fault" and "My First Time".

And let's get real, guys; pop punk is not the genre to get pretentious over.
