    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.

    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.

    Probably a much better album for their fans than the commercialised music later produced. Classic songs that can never be taken to seriously. Great listening music, much like the 2 albums before Expand
