Overview

Beauty from Pain

Those outside the Christian rock market ghetto may recognize Superchick from the band's appearances in numerous hit films -- onscreen in Legally Blonde and on the soundtracks to Glass House, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Catch That Kid, Legally Blonde 2, and Stewart Little 3 -- not to mention lots of TV shows. It's not hard to see why they'd be attractive to soundtrack programmers; the group's sound is rough around the edges (where the guitars crunch and the turntables scratch) but smooth and silky in the middle (where the vocal harmonies blend perfectly and the pop hooks bounce effortlessly). This is a band whose music is aimed at petulant but goodhearted 14-year-old Christians who like their parents but still want to feel like they're rebelling against something -- maybe against a bad boyfriend ("Bowling Ball") or maybe against the nonbelieving world ("Pure") or maybe against death ("We Live"). On the bathetic title track (a ballad with strings) you'll wish they had rebelled a little bit against their producer, and there are more than a couple of moments where their brattiness sounds more than a little bit prefabricated, but there's no denying the pure, sugarcoated pop pleasure to be found on just about every track here.

Well, if you listen to the lyrics, you CAN tell its Christian music - all of the words are uplifting, enlightening, and energetic. This album gives teens a fun way to worship God and learn the gist of Christian morals. If you're looking for music that will influence your child well, look no further than Superchic[k].
