Last One Picked invigorates with energized emotional anthems like "So Bright (Stand Up)," a guitar-driven call to remain surefooted against life's wicked winds, and "Hero," a life-giving lesson about how even small acts can reap huge rewards in a wounded person's life. The poetically-transparent "One and Lonely" - inspired by the inner-struggles of a girl the band met on tour - tackles the shaky insecurities in facing one's self-identity, while "Real" was written in direct response to a 12-year-old girl's letter describing the bitter pill of being young and unpopular. On the other end of the spectrum, the punk-inspired "High School" delivers biting narrative about adults who still think life is one big popularity contest.

I am 33 and a mother of 5 children one of which has just became a teenager. I heard Superchick's song Hero and wanted to know which group has such a great sound plus good morals, so I looked them up. I enjoy every one of their songs. My daughter also enjoys their CD too. We both ripped their CD to our computer and added them to our playlist on our MP3 players so we can listen to them anywhere. With all the other "musical garbage" out their this is a refreshing change. I highly recommend this CD and any of Superchick's songs they are a great band!!!
We Don't Have to Be Rock Stars...Like They Are! Nov 24, 2006
This is my favourite Superchick album. At first I thought: "Should I or should I not buy this album?". Well I decided to buy it and I think it's one of my best decisions ever! It's hard to find any better Christian rock sung in English, only The Benjamin Gate is better than Superchick but not much! This album has many "hits" like "High School", "So Bright (Stand Up)", "Hero", and great peaceful songs "I Belong to You", "One And Lonely", and "We All Fall". I have to say that the only song I don't like is "Song 4 Tricia (Princes And Frogs)" which is the only song isn't sung by Tricia. Great rock / hip-hop album by Superchick! May God be with them! Stars: So Bright (Stand Up), Real, One And Lonely, High School, Na Na
Pretty good for 'Christian Rock' Oct 18, 2006
Being a pagan, one wouldn't expect me to enjoy Christian music... and normally I don't. However, I picked this CD up at Goodwill the other day and found that despite its dubious origins, I really like it. It has a very positive, welcome message - that it's more important to be yourself than to fit in (not exactly the message I'd expect from this country's religion of conformity), and sound-wise is a lot like Green Day or Reel Big Fish - with a vocalist who reminds me more of some of the less 'edgy' female groups or singers. Quite honestly, I wish I had found this CD when I was still in high school. I think it would've made the ordeal much more bearable.
My Daughter's Mad; She Wanted Me to Give It 5 Stars Oct 26, 2005
First of all, this isn't my CD. It belongs to my daughter who picked it up with her birthday money for her 14th birthday. I couldn't be more thrilled; she's listening to something with a positive message.
Now, my daughter, the target audience, loves this CD. She rates it 6 stars on this site's 1-5 rating system. She has listened to it almost non-stop since she bought it. She has all the songs memorized and loves to dance and sing along. *Shrug* She a teenager.
As a mother, I think this title is great. The message of the songs challenges young people to be themselves and to stand up for what is right. It suggests they throw off the pressures to please everyone and to look like a model, and rejoice in who God made them to be.
The lyrics present valuable lesson to be drilled into the minds of our children (for that is what music does, drills messages-for good or evil-into our minds) at a time when they are exceptionally vulnerable to the lies this CD tries to counter (namely, that they must try to fit in at all costs and that compromises must be made between your values and fitting in.)
The music is not my genre. It's not terrible or annoying, but it isn't my favorite either. I'm more of a Third Day fan, myself. But my daughter loves it (and it beats the Christian rap my son is starting to fall in love with. Someone save me...) I would also say that the music is a bit sophomoric; while being much better than the Christian music offered to teens when I was young, it still doesn't reach the level of many popular secular bands.
But, this title is a positive step in the right direction for Christian music and comes highly recommended by this mom for your teens if they like this music style. You can't get better than having your Christian teen singing, "Some days it's hard to be a One Girl Revolution."
Ah, but praise God my daughter is willing to try, and that Superchic[k] is there with positive music to support her on her quest.
this album rocks Jan 26, 2005
I actually liked this album better then there first..and the first album rocked!
Last one picked is very very uplifting. And is still targeted around girls...cuz in todays society everyone has to be "perfect". according to Tv and magazines..and superchick begs to differ.
This band has songs for people that might be going through depression, or people not being excepted because there different...and then a song about all the drama in high school and how its pointless.
