    Their best by a mile. [Jun 2003, p.100]
  2. It's an album that kills with catchiness.
  3. Spews enough speed, hooks, and sick puns to sate the most ADD-afflicted appetite for distraction. [20 Jun 2003, p.73]
  4. The slick production will scare off longtime fans quicker than a cross repels a vampire, but for the rest of us, it's an easy introduction to a crew of weird guys who deserve to be heard.
  5. 70
    The mean-spirited sounds of Good Mourning are easy to listen to, but hard to forget. [#17, p.132]
  6. Another set of sad but very fun songs.
  7. There's enough mayhem and murder to satisfy any Scarface groupie.

    My introduction to the Alkaline Trio was this album. I can't say that the songs are my favorites (well, "Blue in the Face" is my favorite song of all time), but this album is perfect. Perfect. And you can't argue with that. Expand

    While not as good as some of there previous albums, Good Mourning still is a very good CD. We've Had Enough is pure punk, and This Could Be Love is something you just cant forget. Expand

    Awesome!! Not my favorite album of theirs, but one of their best, everyone should listen to Every Thug Needs a lady, All on Black, and Blue in the Face, fantastic songs! Expand

    This album is perfectly polished pop crap. If you want to hear a good Alkaline Trio Album go out and buy Goddammit. I am extremely dissapointed in this record. Expand
