"I was searching for christian music that didn't sound like christian music so I thought the best place to look was christian rock. I bought one album and hated it. It was the kinda of soft, unedgy, bland rock that I wasn't looking for. So for the second trip I took a chance on the new Superchick album, Beauty from Pain. I had faith that a band with a crazy name like "Superchick" would deliver on the funk.
And they did. If I had to compare I would say they're kinda like No Doubt with their mix of reggae, traditional rock, grunge, and hip hop. And then add a little Evanescene with the angelic female voices blending with the wicked guitars. Superchick is truly Christian rock. I appreciated their "risk" of dealing with subject like depression and breaking up with your boy/girlfriend. Out of the 10 songs I love 9 and like the remainig 1. Definitely, absolutely, positively worth buying."
Newer version available on itunes--their best CD by far!!!

"There is a newer version available now called Beauty from Pain 1.1 that has the song Stand in the Rain on it. For some reason that version is not available yet through Amazon but you can get it on Itunes.
Best Songs on this CD in my opinion
Stand in the Rain (their best song EVER in my opinion)
Beauty from Pain (read Joyce Meyer's book Beauty from Ashes for a similar message to Christians who have been through greatly painful experiences)
The song Beauty from Pain is very scriptural.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me. ... To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion--to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit--that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1a,3 Amplified)
You have to read the lyrics because some of the songs have a really great message and you will like the songs better if you understand that aspect. This is not my favorite CD of theirs but still love it.
I discovered this group when I heard their new song "Stand in the Rain" playing on KLOVE, the Christian radio station. I then realized they sing a lot of songs I recognize. They reminded me of some bands I listened to back in college. They have a good sound but a positive message. I'm in my 30's and I appreciate them a lot. Whether you are an adult going through hard times like divorce or a kid just getting through high school, you will definitely appreciate their music. I downloaded all their available cd's off Itunes. They repeat songs on their albums which means you will sometimes get multiple copies of a song if you purchase all their CD's but they tend to be a different remix so it's still ok to have both.
