Beauty from Pain 1.1
Superchick reissued its smash Beauty From Pain in summer 2006 as part of a migration to Columbia Records. Legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band) championed the band, adding one new track and three remixes on what was issued as Beauty From Pain 1.1. The new tune — the gushing "Stand in the Rain" — easily worked its way up CCM alternative radio charts, following the same route as the band's earlier hits "Anthem," "One Girl Revolution," and "We Live." Make no mistake, this is the stuff that pre-teen believers live for: female-powered punk-pop with outright positivity, though Beauty is admittedly a little less buoyant than their previous efforts. More meaningful subject matter grew out of the bandmembers' personal lives, most of whom went through break-ups while recording material for this transition album.
