"Imagine yourself on a wicked rollercoaster ride as you bite down, grit your teeth and squint your eyes from the air pressure and your hands gripped tightly to the handrail. "Superbeautifulmonster" is definatley a wild and fabulous ride with lots of turns, spins upside-downs and free-falls! "Yeah, You" "Let Down" "I Want" & "Funeral Of A Good Grrl" gives this same affect and the fun is only just beggining. Miss Torbet lets off some steam with heated numbers like the opening track "Abandonment" along with others like "The World Is Over" & "The Question Song" which all deliver gloomy versus paired with deep roaring choruses, Ooooh. This is one of Beth's most powerful records of her entire career, It's very well put together. I'm proud to say that "Superbeautifulmonster" is all i've ever wanted in an energetic, pop-infused, Rock'n'Roll album and it's all done by one of my favorite artist. The vocals are gritty and the overall production is mind blowing. If you're a fan of or listen to any one of the three ladies I mentioned in my review's headline you'll be more than happy to order your copy of "Superbeautifulmonster" immediatley. Although I've compared this album to other pop/rock or hardrock greats it's simply just giving you a fine idea of what Bif is dishin'. Bif Naked is still one of a kind and completely stands on her own two high heels. She has her own distinct writing abilites, attitude and style with her vintage jet-black Bettie paige cut bangs. Bif Naked is the epitome of true girl-rock at it's best. Isn't the album title everything?!
Decent pop music, but doesn't really rock

"I took a chance on Bif Naked's 2005 album Superbeautifulmonster because a) she's hot and b) I had heard that she rocked pretty hard. Hot as she may be, she rocks about as much as Avril Lavigne. She sounds like a teen pop singer doing "rocker night" on American Idol.
Bif Naked has a great voice and writes pretty infectious pop songs. But that's all an album like Superbeautifulmonster should be sold as - a pop album. All the tattoos and Metallica covers in the world won't change the fact that most of the songs on this album could just as easily have been written for Faith Hill or Gwen Stefani.
Again, if you're looking for a catchy, (mostly) well-written pop album, you could do a lot worse than Superbeautifulmonster. If you're expecting a remotely authentic rock album, you're going to be disappointed. Girlschool, this ain't."
