Did anyone see the cover art announced the other day? Is anyone planning to pre-order and get the signed copy?

I'm thinking about it but have not done the currency conversion yet to see what it actually costs in USD.

I'll probably just wait and get the version that NEH gets but I keep forgetting to pick up the last release as at one time these guys were my fav sleaze band but the only ones I've heard were Dreamin in a Casket and the s/t disc and both are awesome IMO.

Am I converting the price right? $45 USD if you pre-order the CD? Please someone tell me I am wrong. Even if it is signed, if they want $45, that is BS if you ask me.

HARDCORE SUPERSTAR - Split Your Lip (Album)

 

Nuclear Blast - 26th November 2010

 

‘Split Your Lip’, the new offering for Swedish Hard Rock veterans Hardcore Superstar, is a radiant return to form, I’m glad to announce. Not that there was ever any of their albums I really really disliked, but I always found myself going back to ‘Bad Sneakers…’ and their 2005 self-titled in the end. With ‘Split Your Lip’, Jocke & Co get as close as they can to that album without at all regressing or denying the artistic growth they underwent in the past ten years. I’m already buzzing to the thought of how these songs are going to sound live. Bring on the next UK tour!

 

I found only one problem with ‘Split Your Lip’, at least for the first few listens: I couldn’t get over song n.2 ‘Guestlist’. I just liked it instantly too much. Well, initially a football commentary in a foreign language took me by surprise and I briefly thought I was on Spotify waiting for the ads to end. However, the scenario soon comes clear, and if ‘Community Property’ is the most honest song ever written by a rockstar, ‘Guestlist’ is the most honest song written by a rockstar after the 80s, when the trend of the half-naked groupies piling backstage is indeed ‘passé’. Hilarious and rocks your socks off. Thumbs up.

 

When I finally made it past ‘Guestlist’, I discovered an album that manages to be diverse yet portraying a trademark sound that is not limited to Berg’s unique voice. While ‘Last Call for Alcohol’ may well be the next single and has nothing to envy to ‘We don’t celebrate Sundays’, title track ‘Split Your Lip’ even takes a page off the Murderdolls book in its aggressive explosion of vitality, adding the usual sexy HCSS fingernail marks. ‘Moonshine’ is so pop and chilled in its intro that kind of reminds me of ‘Blame it on the boogie’ (yes, Jackson 5), but fear not, as it soon takes off and shakes your speakers savagely. First ballad in HCSS key: ‘Here comes the sick bitch’. Enough said.

 

I deeply hate ’song by song’ reviews so I’ll stop here, because I could go on forever on each and every track. What you need to know is that you’re going to love ‘Split Your Lip’, doesn’t matter if you prefer old HCSS or their more recent work. Each song will be inexorably stuck in your memory only a few listens. This is a precious chest with all that this band could musically excel in. There’s even a little go at hardcore screaming at the end of ‘What did I do’, and more Murderdolls type of vocals; there’s classic rock and old school riffs; a few bluesy notes; but in the end is simply, utterly, magnifically Hardcore Superstar, the way you were hoping they would be on their next album.

 

Curious? Too bad. It’s out on 26th November on Nuclear Blast. Until then, you’ll have to trust my word and keep dreaming. Soundtrack advice: 2009 greatest hits ‘We don’t celebrate Sundays’.

8/10

Received my copy today and gave it a couple of spins. It's definately a step back towards their 'rock'-sound and less 'metal' than Beg for it or Dreamin'. My first impression is mixed: The good songs on SYL are simply some of the best songs they've ever written (Guestlist, Last call for Alcohol, Bully come to mind), but unfortunately there are some weaker ones as well. A very nice album once again, but it doesn't top Crashdiet or Crazy Lixx for me.

 

Overall, I'd place it as third or maybe second in their discography, with the ST still on top of the list.

had this on constant rotation for the last 2 days. This first half is brilliant, and the 2nd half great, althouhg not as good as the first half of the disc.

 

seems everyone is putting Bully up there as one of the better tracks. On my listens so far I;d put this towards the lower end....

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
