|Excellent cross between classic sleaze/glam and new rock. The new rock influence is definitely not alternative, which is a good thing! This album has some punch to it and has a great sleaze glam sound. I just found out about these guys not long ago, and it seems their last few albums have gotten so much stronger compared to their first ones. Well worth a listen. Plus, it has been getting a little "mainstream" attention as well, which hopefully will put another nail in the coffin of the awful plague of alternative that has ruined rock since the dreaded Seattle scene... gag!!!!!

|For fans of high-energy sleaze-metal, listening to this CD will be more enjoyable than hardcore porn is to a sex addict. These guys have rapidly risen to the rank of superstars within this genre, joining the likes of Crashdiet and Crazy Lixx, but arguably bringing a heavier edge than either of those two bands. The group spits out attitude like a cowboy spits out tobbaco juice, rocking out on a wall of guitars, catchy choruses, and all the backing vocals you could ask for. If you're only into fluffy, keyboard-soaked AOR, then this may not be your cup of tea, but most melodic hard rock/metal fans should eat this up like a cunnilinguist eating up a buffet of bald beavers. If there is any justice in teh world, Hardcore Superstar's name will soon be on everyone's lips.

|I've heard of this band for years and years, ever since "Something Special" got airplay on some online station I used to listen, circa 2001? Even at the time, they were hailed as saviors of rock 'n' roll, so I guess that makes them the granddaddies of the whole Swedish sleaze "movement." But I didn't really care fo rthe song, and never checked out an album until Beg For It, which I thought was great. Split Your Lip is even better, just total energy and attitude, shades of heavy Skid Row (or maybe bands that imitate Skid Row, like Pyn Siren), and raw L.A. Guns. In a way, some songs ("Last Call For Alcohol," "Guestlist") remind me of Crank County Daredevils, but with tighter songwriting and vocals that aren't quite as raspy. The lyrics don't always make that much sense, as is often the case with European bands, especially these Swedish-sleaze ats--you hear it on a song like "Here Comes That Sick Bitch," but with this type of music, lyrics aren't really the point. Great disc all the way!
