With their latest Beg For It, Hardcore Superstar continues to impress with another solid disc of melodic hard rock in the 80's sleaze tradition. Even better, Hardcore Superstar is maturing in their song composition. The material on Beg For It is more innovative as there is greater musical diversity within each arrangement. This proves again that Hardcore Superstar is one of the better acts coming out of Scandinavia to revive this musical genre.
Beg For It, like its predecessor, explodes from the gates once again with riveting and driving hard rock. Overall, it may be even heavier than previous works if considering the devastating Shades Of Grey, Don't Care 'Bout Your Bad Behaviour, Spit It Out and quite a few others. Frankly, except for the pure melodic rock of Hope For A Normal Life, the closest thing to a ballad, there is no respite here for you as Hardcore Superstar pummels away. Yet, throughout, the riffs, melodies, solos, and especially the vocal harmonies are massive and entertaining. Songs like Illegal Fun, Take 'Em All Out, Innocent Boy, and Beg For It remind you of Dr. Feelgood-era Motley Crue, only better (I think Hardcore Superstar may be better musicians).
Overall, Beg For It is another fine platter of melodic hard rock from Hardcore Superstar showing greater creativity and maturity in song composition than ever before. Beg For It is heavy, versatile, and melodic butt-kicking rock. Very recommended!

My childhood was safe and sane. No abuse and no traumas. I was surrounded by a large and loving family who taught me the importance of hard work and a meaningful education.

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.
