Super Eurobeat 071
1.Denise - Guilty (Delta)
The album starts off sounding rather interesting, but the song is really a
good definition for the word 'anticlimax'. The chorus doesn't offer
anything interesting and the vocals don't got any hooks in them what so
ever. In the end one of the crappiest album openers in SEB history. The
drums in the background sound nice though...
Rating : 5½
2.Derreck Simons - This Time (A-Beat C)
The mediocore level still continues as one of the most average performers
from A-Beat C is set loose. A rather standard song with a good c-melody
and nice electric guitars but apart from them, this song is plain boring.
Not a very impressive beginning for this album.
Rating : 5½
3.Margaret - Waiting For Your Love (A-Beat C)
At this point I was getting kind of scared, the abnormally low level
continues with this song. A song that has a decent chorus and nice
backgrounds but it's also very standard in every way. Not bad, nor good.
Rating : 6+
4.Casanova - I Would Die For You (Delta)
This song begins with the exactly same kind of vocals as my childhood
's Virtual reality (Well there's a slight difference
but the vocals sound really identical, oh and Alexia
is an Italian
artist if you didn't already know that, a great eurodance artist if I may
say so...). That gives the song some sort of pity points at least, also
this song is not a very typical eurobeat song. It sounds more like
eurodance and features some nice effects in the backgrounds. Otherwise the
synths sound pretty normal and the song could've been more variable.
Rating : 8-
5.Lolita - Highway (A-Beat C)
Now I am really worried, when Lolita
's songs don't even sound great
there has to be something wrong somewhere. Highway
is possibly the worst track she has released to date. It's not her typical
energetic style and the sounds are rather boring. The chorus creates a
nice atmosphere for the song but the verses really do bad for this track.
Let me tell you, I'm disappointed, but on the other hand this had to
Rating : 7½
6.Victoria - Sexy Toy (Come And Try Me) (Time)
The song starts out with a really adorable intro, and when the melody
kicks in we're treated to a pretty cool song. The track has slightly
lighter backgrounds than eurobeat in general but it works really well this
time. The song isn't a huge masterpiece or anything but with the level of
this album it's one of the better ones in the crowd.
Rating : 8
7.Dave Rodgers - I Was Made For Lovin' You (A-Beat
I've gone through multiple debates about Dave
's vocals and this
track was actually the one that really made me realize how .. err...
not good he sounds. I'm fully aware of the huge numbers of people who like
his voice and his songs, but I just can't comprehend any of them. This
song is pure torture and it's one cover that should've never ever been
Rating : 5-
8.Maio & Co. - Walking On The Moon (Time)
Finally, a good song! I was quite relieved to find out that there's at
least a one good song on this album (well okay more to come later...).
This song has a rather simple style but it works really well, the chorus
and the verses merge together very well and the result is a great track.
Rating : 9-
9.Go Go Girls - Let Me Know (A-Beat C)
With the previous disappointment by Lolita I was hoping much from this
track, and fortunately the Go Go Girls
didn't let me down. Not the
strongest performance by this group but the song in it's cheeriness lifts
up the general level of this album a lot.
Rating : 8½
10.Starlet - You're Gonna Be (Delta)
When Delta is generally at work the songs have huge differences and their
works don't have a huge resemblance to each other. This time we get a
track that sounds more like the earlier eurobeat style and works
surprisingly well, a good chorus with excellent vocals make this song a
small sort of a hit.
Rating : 8+
11.High Frequency - Love In Stereo (Time)
Finally a great melody! This album really lacks those, and this track also
sounds really good on other areas as well. The chorus is simple but really
nice in the end. Not the most memorable song around but it does its own
Rating : 9-
12.Black Power - Prisoner Of Love (A-Beat C)
Well I'm slowly losing my belief in A-Beat C releases if songs like these
get out more. A-Beat C hasn't ever before had a line-up this crappy on a
SEB, well I hope this is a one time deal. A song that has a non-existant
melody, there's just beats and some guitars every here and there. Pure
Rating : 6-
13.Dr. Money - Power Gun (Time)
If Super Eurobeat albums were generally the level of this album I bet
there wouldn't have been a huge audience for them. This album features
very many male vocalists and in the end most of the songs (as well as the
vocalists) suck, just like this one. Only the c-melody after the chorus
sounds good, but the rest goes on and only annoys you.
Rating : 5+
14.Valentina - Question (A-Beat C)
As my previous hopes had faded I was hoping that the last A-Beat C would
at least offer something exciting and new. Alas no, I got more of the same
crap. A song with nothing special what so ever. Valentina
sound good but with a song this lousy it doesn't help much.
Rating : 6
15.Marko Polo - Mad Guy (Delta)
At least my last hope finally answered. Marko Polo
performances continue and this time he throws in a really catchy track.
The song from the beginning to the end is really speedy and the chorus in
particular sounds great. I don't know what's up with his vocals but he
sounds really pleasant to the ear, where as the majority of other male
vocalists don't. Though that's a big yay for Delta.
Rating : 9
16.Angie Davies - Jumpin' Up (Time)
Songs like this get my spirits up, but at the same time make me furious.
The problem is that the song is really cheery and sounds great, but at the
same time it sounds really identical to a dozen other tracks. Cloning can
sometimes do good but not this time.
Rating : 7
17.Triumph - Baby, Baby Run (Time)
At this point of the album I had lost my hopes pretty completely. This
song though does work rather well. More male vocals don't really cheer me
up, but at least the song works nicely. A good melody with some nice
effects and the female vocals really give this song the small boost it
Rating : 8
18.Drama - Love For Sale (Delta)
This song has been one of the tracks I didn't really get at first. It
took me a while to understand the magic of this song. The perky
backgrounds and the good vocals work in a nice symbiosis. A nice wrap up
for the album.
Rating : 8½
Final Words :
Well what I can say, this has to be one of the worst SEBs out there. The
album doesn't have any real gems on it, it does feature a couple of good
songs but nothing very memorable. Also the amount of plain crappy songs is
pretty amazingly high. I wouldn't really recommend this album for too many
people, perhaps the most hardcore SEB fans will get something out of it.
Final Score : 7
