While Is This Thing Cursed? maintains a creative sense via synths, guitar breaks and signature drum chops by Derek Grant, the album has the familiar feeling of the band’s 2013 record My Shame Is True. Regardless of the familiarity, the aforementioned songs exemplify what it means to hurt and the inclusive feelings that surround it. Arguably, Feed Me to the Lions is the most powerful song of the album . Is This Thing Cursed? might go down as one of the top albums Alkaline Trio has written. From the dynamics of the guitar riffs, dark lyrics hidden with lighter tones, to the overall message, it’s an opus to be remembered.
Is This Thing Cursed? by Alkaline Trio Released : 2018. Is this thing cursed? This g n thing’s the worst Now one look in that direction And everything starts to hurt. Is this thing cursed? It’s been around for years And everytime my boat’s about t s up That g n thing is near. I tried to throw it in the river But it washed up in my sink And now the city cut my water And it’s all I have to drink. Is this thing cursed? If it is then I’m the jerk Who keeps on hanging around When I simply should just burn it to the ground. Coldest regards signed my name and sealed the card Tried to leave it all behind me and almost blew up in my car Is this thing cursed? Is this thing cursed? : Is this thing cursed? My haunted head aches so much worse Than those that can’t remember How dismemberment works. Is this thing cursed? It’s been around for years.
It’s incredible to imagine Alkaline Trio releasing anything of quality in 2018, let alone anything at all. While the band never put out a truly bad album (This Addiction coming the closest), it’s no secret that the last decade has shown them far beyond their best. Their latest efforts showed a band still capable of writing passable hooks, but tired and long out of ideas. Right off the bat the album shows a sense of cohesion and unity we’ve haven’t seen in a while with the incredible title track.

Is This Thing Cursed? works well as an album opener with its nursery rhyme beginning and Skiba and Andriano trading off vocals and harmonies. It has a quality about it similar to Old School Reasons. Demon and Division offers the first glimpse into the sound of 2018's Alkaline Trio. Catchy bass chords drive through the verses underlined by subtle keyboards and a classic Skiba chorus. It’s clear Alkaline Trio are enjoying playing as a group again resulting in Is This Thing Cursed? being one of their loosest efforts to date. Each individual player stands out at one point or another. Their other musical projects act as context clues to Is This Thing Cursed? and what is inspiring the Alkaline Trio of 2018. If that’s a sentence that interests you, this is a worthwhile welcome back.
