"I kept on seeing this CD in the Christian bookstore and thinking that "Superchic[k]" was an awesome name for a band. After hearing "Barlow Girls" that was it, I had to get it! So I begged and sure enough it was under the Christmas tree. THIS CD IS HARDLY EVER OUT OF MY PLAYER! I'll just give it a quick, er, sorta quick, overview:
1)Barlow Girls-Of course who could not love this one. Great message too. *** (out of ***)
2)Big Star Machine-Easy to sing along to, and can't we all relate? **
3)Karaoke Superstars-When I get my drivers liscence, this is definitely a song I'm gonna be playing full blast!! And basically that's what it's about...singin as loud as you can and not caring what the world says...***
4)Get Up-Very encouraging song **
5)Not Done Yet-A song for when life [stinks]. But in the long run it doesn't really matter. **
6)Super Trouper-I love the lyrics on this one! So original. ***
7)TV Land-Haven't we all wondered why life isn't like it is on TV? And why are they portraying this phony [stuff] to us daily anyway?! **
8)Help Me Out God-Very catchy, and if you're a Christian you can doubly relate. ***
9)One Girl Revolution-Maybe all you guys out there won't want to jam to this, but it is definitely a girl-kick...song!!! ***
10)Alright-With a chorus soley made up of the words "It'll be OK it'll be Alright", how much easier does it get to sing along? **
11)Let it Be-Almost has a slower, jazz feel to it. In a punk/pop way :) This song is like my message in life. ***The remixes are awesome as well! Especially the One Girl Revolution Mob-Action Mix. I think it's even better than the original version. This band rocks, and I thoroughly encourage you to get it!!!!"
Superchick is the coolest band ever!

"Superchick is such a fun band. The tunes are so hot and the lyrics are even hotter. My favorite songs are: Barlow Girls, Big Star Machine, Karaoke Superstars, Get Up, Super Trouper, TV Land, and Let it Be. I realize I just spotlighted the majority of the CD, but that's just how good it is. The theme of the CD is basically that it doesn't matter what the media says or what other people think because I'm exactly how I need to be and God's on my side. It's all very inspiring to here lyrics like, "it's a dumb philosophy to judge by popularity" and TV Land says, "Barbie's not a role model; she's only makebelieve." It's fun to sing songs while driving down the road and actually know that what I'm singing isn't polluting my faith.Buy the CD if you like fun music. My other favorite bands are: OC Supertones, Five Iron Frenzy, Jennifer Knapp, Toby Mac, Third Day, Rebecca St. James, and probably something else that I can't remember. Another CD that is amazing is Paige's self-titled CD. She's about 16, I think, and has awesome songs that have the same feeling as Superchick's. (...)"
Well worth owning

"This is a great CD. Music, lyrics, vocals - it all works in a cool kind of grungy garage genuine way. The lead vocalist is a female voice, which is a welcome change from the male-dominated garage music world, and moreover it is a voice that is not only easy on the ears, but capable of changing timbre and depth for different songs. Very nice! The music's brilliant too, so easy to sing along to, the kind of songs you can turn up loud whenever you feel happy, or down, or when you need some great music for cruising. Initially the songs might sound a little similar, but they come into their own as individual songs with a second listen. Superchic[k] impresses me most with their lyrics. There are some great, great tracks here, dealing with so many hard issues facing most of us at one time or another: insecurity, courage, abstinence, the pressure to look good, and friendships. That probably makes it sound unbearably self-righteous, but whoever writes these lyrics is obviously for real, and the underlying philosophy behind these people is something we all probably need a bit more of - that it's okay to be who you are, and that you don't have to try to impress anyone is not something you hear much. But finally we have a group that speaks through its music with real relevance and intelligence: full props to Superchic[k] for giving us excellent music AND excellent lyrics (almost unheard of these days). Brilliant!All the songs on this album are outstanding, but standouts for me are: "Barlow Girls", "Karaoke Superstars", "Not Done Yet" and the fabulous "One Girl Revolution" which appeared on the movie soundtrack for "Legally Blonde". That last song alone ought to be required listening for any girl who ever feels she needs to be something she's not. I knew only one song before I bought this album, and have not been disappointed at all, I can't stop listening to it. Fun is the right word to use. It's truly a worthwhile CD and I totally recommend it. This is certainly one great album."
