Alkaline Trio: Maybe I'll Catch Fire

Sound — 8
When my brother first lent me this album I had only heard Good Mourning. The first couple songs on the album sounded somewhat forgettable. However, when I got nearer to the end I was completely floored by the quality. Sleepyhead, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, and of course, Radio, just blew the brains from my head.

Lyrics — 10
This album housed some of the best songwriting that I have heard in a long time. You can relate to more or less any song on the album at one point or another. I still can't get over the last few songs, both the sound quality and the earnest lyrics.

Overall Impression — 10
This is one of the better albums that I own. Even after listening to it a hundred times and playing half the songs, it hasn't gotten old. Buy it, lend it to your friend who will in turn buy it, and then go out and buy their other albums.
