ALKALINE TRIO - MY SHAME IS TRUE
A nod to the Elvis Costello classic "My Aim is True".
Inspired by a recent romantic break-up, vocalist and guitarist Matt Skiba described the record as a "pseudo-concept album" and a catharsis," stating, "I just wrote this one more as a love letter to my ex-girlfriend, or an apology note set to music." Following the album's release, Skiba noted that the album brought the couple back together.
The album received mostly favorable reviews upon its release. My Shame Is True reached twenty-four on the Billboard 200.
