Hardcore Superstar – C’mon Take On Me Review

but they can’t keep up this high level with the following stuff. From time to time you feel like you’ve heard this all before, but better. Hardcore Superstar can’t beat their previous record “Split Your Lip”, which was a little highlight for me. Nevertheless I can recommend this album to you if you are a fan of this band or music style. It’s solid fare – no more, no less.

Easily this could be their finest album ever. Hard and brutal, yet they experiment with some slower more melodic stuff on this offering, particularly on the title track and “Cold Embrace.” Yet unlike their foray into the lighter side back in the day with “The Ballad,” it’s not wimpy. Chuck’s vocals are stronger than ever

The attempts at seriousness that the second album showed are all but gone here and replacing them is a whole heap of piratey goodness where rum and shipwrecks are the main menu mixed with a few really funny moments as well…
