Thankfully though after a year of waiting for the album to appear on the shelves again, i managed to get it and boy let me tell you, this is has some of the most heartfelt songs to set foot on a punk record.
The strange thing is some of these love songs would never find their way onto a Westlife cd in fact if Brian Mcfadden said "I wanna wake up naked next to you, kissing the curve of your clavicle" on a song then god knows what the pop world would be like.
My favourites have to be Cringe, Nose Over Tail, Message from Kathelene and Trouble Breathing for they define the sound of the Alkaline Trio and also they are lyrically some of the best songs ever written by a punk band. Also the acoustic songs Enjoy Your Day and Sorry about That really hit home with Skiba and Adriano taking the last pint on the bar table and drinking it all to lost love.
You will be stumped to find an album like this one, i suggest you buy and find out why it is so immensely popular.
Whilst many fans might consider one of the next two records superior to this one, (surely no-one could possibly argue for Good Mourning or Crimson) I would beg to differ. 'Goddamnit' might sound like it was recorded in a barn by comparison to their later, slicker efforts, but thats all part of the many charms to be found here.
If you're into melodic punk then, seriously, you have to own this. Its so good its worth buying twice to have one spare for the inevitable day that the first ceases to work due to playing it to death. A better debut I challenge you to find.
Another good thing about this album is that most songs are by Matt. I just prefer his songwriting and his voice is just so much better! I've never been too keen on Dan's songs (not all, but most...) but one of Dan's songs on here just so happens to be 'Message From Kathleen' which is brilliant.
In my opinion the best songs on Goddamnit are 'Nose Over Tail' and 'Sorry About That'. They're complete contrasts but equally as thrilling. 'Sorry About That' also proves that Alk3 can write fantastic 'ballads' too (more commoly known as Acoustic!). 'My Little Needle' and 'Cop' are also worthy of a mention. There are also 4 extra tracks of which '97' is the best. However this song's not been recorded very well and the music tends to swamp Matt's voice, but I'm sure you can live with that! If you want to hear a better version, get the DVD and hear (& watch!) it live instead.
You may accuse me of only being a relatively young Alk3 fan seeing as I only discovered them last year, but I know a good thing when I hear it, and this is it.
Also for anyone who's interested, I've heard their new album is due out in April and is rumoured to be called 'Church and Distroy'. Can't Wait!

This is amazing. I own the original '98 CD but i LOVED how Matt Allison remixed this tracks. They are almost the same, but just a bit better. Read morePublished on 2 Dec. 2010 by dev
Very Raw. For me they have got better with age and maturity. Hopefully, these songs will grow, as is usual for me and the trio, after a few more listens. Read morePublished on 9 Oct. 2010 by Ian

Very sharp and well thought out album. Compared to "Alkaline Trio" and "Maybe I'll Catch Fire" (the bands first two albums) this really sets the mood for what the next 2 albums are... Read morePublished on 2 Nov. 2004 by Mr. N. J. Hickman
