My Shame Is True brings together all of the band's most commercial and personal inclinations to bear on some of the best songs of its career. 


Across this LP's twelve tracks there is a barely a duff moment and the scary thing is it is hard to see the band ever losing that ability, so long is their streak of consistency.

Consequence of Sound

Although this isn’t a punk classic, My Shame Is True comes out swinging as Alkaline Trio’s strongest effort since 2008’s Agony & Irony

A.V. Club

The long-running Chicago trio has set an even lower bar for so-called darkness: basically, monochromatic, by-the-numbers pop-punk with the occasional hint of minor-key moodiness

There are some fucking bangers on it, but there are too many forgettable cuts to really give it a high rating

Best: I'm Only Here To Dissapoint, I Pessimist
