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.
It's an album that kills with catchiness. Though "This Could Be Love" details the steps a jilted lover would take to off him, Skiba's melodic sensibility is hard not to hum along to. Similarly, the triumphant final key change of "Continental" makes its bitter farewell to a suicide victim easier to swallow. This dichotomy between deathly fascination and darn-right pop sensibility continues throughout Good Mourning.
