SWEDEN: the birthplace of sexual Liberalism in the 60's and 70's, the home of boiled crayfish and, lest we forget, the country that gave us ABBA.
We love you, Sweden. In fact, we've loved you since '94 when a band of sleazy
Swedish rockers started a little outfit known as Hardcore Superstar.
The band's range is evident throughout this album with juxtaposition
of 'softer' tracks such as 'The Ocean' with your Saturday night staples like
'Party Til I'm Gone'.
This album, after the very first listen, is synonymous
with everything we associate with Hardcore Superstar. Sandvik and Andreasson
remain the power couple where that driving rhythm is concerned.
sleazy lead guitar licks are as prevalent as ever on this album while Berg's
trademark vocals remain undiminished, yet demonstrative of a range we may not
have previously been aware of.
