Matt Skiba is an atypically smooth-voiced crooner for a pop-punk band like Alkaline Trio. Over Crimson’s churning minor-key arrangements — which make more room for spooky keyboard ooze and swinging rhythms than those on the Chicago outfit’s four previous full-lengths — he sings about longing ”for a casket to call my own.” Lyrically, Skiba prefers being dark to opining snarkily about, say, lifestyles of the rich and famous. But his laments rarely lack his less thoughtful peers’ caffeinated buzz, giving the CD its kick.
