Good Mourning is the fourth studio album by Alkaline Trio, released May 13, 2003 on Vagrant Records. Recording took place at Cello Studios with producer Joe McGrath, with Jerry Finn co-producing and mixing the proceedings. Christopher Holmes, Jason Gossman and Robert Reed acted as assistant engineeres. Finn and Keith Morris provided additional vocals. Brian Gardner mastered the recordings at Bern Grundman Mastering.

Good Mourning is the handsome if dark-eyed offspring of the deliberately melodic From Here to Infirmary LP and Alkaline Trio's more raucous earlier work. Whether or not the band "sold out" (or whatever) when Infirmary arrived with the stamp of ambitious indie Vagrant, the set nevertheless seemed forced. It's an album that kills with catchiness.

Good Mourning features a slight departure from the earlier Alkaline Trio sound. The album makes use of the occasional layered guitar parts and contains a somewhat darker mood than their previous work. Of note is the different vocal styles featured on the album. Matt Skiba provides a somewhat raspy tone that fits the faster standard punk songs, whilst conveying a sense of emotion that is key to the lyrical context. Dan Andriano makes use of a slower more well-rounded style that puts greater focus on the instrumental performance, although his vocals are still quite commanding.

Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Chicago’s Alkaline Trio rip off more playful emo punk on Good Mourning, as Matt Skiba’s profane poetry yields another set of sad but very fun songs. The band’s overt pop instincts stayed were muted on past albums, notably their debut, Goddamnit!, but Mourning isn’t nearly so abrasive. Draped in silky production, the band’s painful odes to lost love and bittersweet joy lose some edge (witness the toothless opener, "This Could Be Love").
