Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Punk with a satisfyingly vicious snarl, From Here To Infirmary is the sound of Blink 182's truant-playing next-door neighbours breaking into dad's drinks cabinet and drinking it dry. Chicago's Alkaline Trio are three boozers, abusers and all-round losers that crank out the sort of perfectly deformed, hair-tearingly angstful pop-punk tunes that made Green Day's Dookie such a mainstream punk landmark. That time-honoured comedy punk album title (see also: NOFX's Punk In Drublic, Blink 182's Enema Of The State and countless others) is shot through with a certain black humour, because these are all songs about hitting the gutter, and hitting it hard. The opening "Private Eye" remembers a New Year's Eve spent alone with the bottle, frontman Matt Skiba singing, "There's no reason to call, I passed out on the floor / Smoked myself stupid and drunk my insides dry", while the fraught, anthemic emo-pop of "Take Lots With Alcohol" reads like a monologue sobbed straight from the psychiatrist's chair. --Louis Pattison

I bought this album having only heard Stupid Kid, which remains among my favourite tracks, and as always I was hoping that all of them would be of similar quality, but i never expected so many great songs as this album provides. The first, Private Eye, has become my distinct favourite, but its one of those albums you can just put on and listen to straight through, without having to constantly stop and select a better track. Its the kind of punk style music i like - a balance between the pop styles of blink 182 and the harder rock styles some bands adopt.
If you like decent punk music, you'll like Alkaline Trio.

In the seven years that I've owned this album, I have never tired of it. Other albums I bought around the same time have been loved then forgotten about, sitting in my CD rack gathering dust. But not this one. Whilst some people might recommend the first two albums (Goddamnit and Maybe I'll Catch Fire) as being better than this, I really can't see why. Just because something was recorded on a little Indie label nobody had heard of doesn't mean it's a better product. Certainly, the integrity of the band can be discussed in this respect, but the quality of the music, both in terms of production and songwriting, peaked with this album. Whilst the preceding two albums have some blindingly good songs on them (Radio, My Little Needle, Clavicle, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, You've Got So Far To Go, She Took Him To The Lake), From Here To Infirmary barely falters from start to finish. For me, only Stupid Kid and Armageddon lack the same emotional, gritty edge to be found on the other tracks, but they make up for this with energy and exuberance. Plus the sound quality is much improved over the first two albums, which is always a bonus.

The album opener, Private Eye, was in fact the track that got me into the band after I heard it on Kerrang! 3 - it is quite literally a track that grabs hold of you and won't let go. As a statement of intent, the song is masterful, full of bitter yet intelligent lyrics, sung with passion without being whiney and the musicality of it dark and brooding, with a driving intensity. From this point, the album doesn't let up, the rest of the tracks following this template of dark lyricism coupled with poppy yet dark instrumentation. To pull out an individual song as the highlight of the album is, in fact impossible.

After falling in love with 'Stupid Kid' and its upbeat catchy punk pop sound, I was surprised and impressed with the rest of 'From here to Infirmary'. But don't be fooled. The album is a dark, brooding lyrical journey accompanied by super catchy melodic punk rock. The topics covered include death, depression, Chicago street life,drink, drugs and hitting rock bottom, so don't expect happy, cheery pop songs about girls and sunshine.
'Private eye' is an amazing opening track, and 'Armageddon' is a really well written song, not to mention catchy, guarranteed to stick in your head for days!
The music is tight, and Skiba's vocals are strikingly different, and a contrast to the other punk pop leaders of the moment eg. New Found Glory and Sum41.
Definitely worth getting if you like the punk rock stuff thats around at the moment, it's refreshingly different

Is it wrong i listened to this album every day for months after hearing stupid kid? Is it wrong that after 12 years and approaching my 30th birthday i still adore this record? Is it wrong i play this in the car at an insane volume? Certainly not.

This was my first Trio album and i still think it's the best overall. It's well produced,well rounded and most importantly the songs are very very strong. No filler here.

So the album starts off with "private eye" with it's distinctive guitar riff and menacing lyrics "Maybe someday ill find me a suspect with no ali-by" Classic Matt Skibka.

Next is "Mr chainsaw" not only the best song on the album but possibly the best song the Trio have ever written. I love the pace,fury and passion on this one. It almost feels the song could never end,lyrics are genius too.

Obviously "stupid kid" most people have heard,it's short and sweet. The perfect single. Other highlights include the clever "You're dead" the Aggressive "armageddon" and the UK bonus track "Hell yes".

I like how if you Put "Greenday" and "A fire inside" into a blender this is the result. It's not pop-punk,but it's not too gothic either. The songs never seem forced either,everything sounds from the heart and i love them for this. It's dark but catchy at the same time,maybe that's what makes Alkaline trio special.

Buy this CD and play it to everyone you know. I bet Grannies/toddlers alike will smile,it's that good. 4.5/5

Armageddon, mr chainsaw, and stupid kid are worth the admission price alone. A refreshing change to all the th mtv friendly pop punk combos on the market these days. Combining dark and poignant lyrics with infectious and euphoric chord progressions, the alkaline trio are indeed the anethema to all the ascerbic, saccarine tat at the moment. pH scale 14
