5.0 von 5 Sternen If this review doesn't sell you on Paid, then nothing will 2. September 2007
Von Cory Seymour - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD

For well over a decade, I have followed the Rock and Roll wonder that is the Supersuckers. Starting around 1993 (give or take a year) I stumbled upon this band while trying to satisfy my "grunge rock" thirst by sweeping over every indie and chain record store in my stomping grounds of Pennsylvania and Ohio. While looking for the Sub Pop release "Screaming Life/Fopp" EP by Soundgarden, I found the CD of a band that would forever change my world, in ways that I never could of imagined. "The Smoke of Hell" grabbed my attention, and my teenage spirit/angst...and never let go. Some would read this and say, "This guy is being a little over-dramatic about finding a new CD/band", but my admiration for the band developed into something a bit more personal over the years, and I will not bore anyone with the details. Long story short, they are rock chameleons that can write and perform anything that that strikes their fancy, and do it so well you often will crap your pants in astonishment. Their relentless, never ending touring schedule year after year and adversity hurdling is the stuff of punk rock legend, and this band should never be taken lightly. The diversity of their records and live talent has made them one of the ultimate "musicians band". If only the world would snap out of their Alt. Rock haze, these guys would sell more records than one could count...and maybe, just maybe, obliterate anything that would resemble the carbon-copy rock acts that popular radio is so stuck on. When Eddie Spaghetti states at a show that the Supersuckers are the "Greatest Rock & Roll band in the world", it is no gimmick or joke. Enough of this rant, let's get to talkin' about "Paid".
The title track screams the ethic of this band. Following their career has shown me how strong an individual, or group of, has to be to handle staying in a turbulent, cut-throat business for almost 20 years now. If life hands you a lemon, you stop the lemon into the ground, punch the guy who gave it to you, keep on touring, write more songs, and start your own label. "Gotta work and gotta get paid" is a lyric that any lower to middle class American can relate to, and the fact that radio has passed over a possible anthem makes me want to storm several radio exec offices and start breaking faces. Kudos to the Discovery Channel for picking it for "The Deadliest Catch".
"Breaking Honey's Heart" is a tender little diddy that is carrying the torch lit by Eddies' superb solo albums "The Sauce" and "Old #2". Again...great lyrics, great idea, great melody...how can you not relate to this song. I've screwed up with my special lady friend at least 17 times just last week.
"I like It All Man" is reminiscent of the speed heard in "La Mano Corunda", and also satisfies the taste for more down and dirty rock songs that could be on a track "Evil Powers Of Rock And Roll" and "MFers Be Trippin." This song speaks the truth.
"Here I Am", to me, shows the progression of the band into the dynamo that they are today. Incorporating and intro...then counting down like Dee Dee, changing the time and blowing your socks off with some signature Rock and Roll. Love that driving drum beat.
When I heard the rock version of "Road Worn And Weary" I almost ran through a wall due to pure exhilaration. Again, showing some serious chops, they take a totally awesome, original, and beautifully worded country song and make it serious contender for one of their best rock songs. Why can't all band progress like this? That's a rhetorical question. Answer: They all suck. This is a true anthemic masterpiece that anyone who hasn't showered for 8 days can always appreciate. Side note: Stay away from pulled pork sandwiches at highway truck stops.
With "Creepy Jackalope Eye", I might sound a bit redundant. I feel the same way with this as "Road Worn and Weary". They take a great song, written quite a while ago (released 1994), and turn it into a great alternative version. But in this case, it's flip flopped, when comparing it to the above. But wait...just when you think the song is staying with the slower time and country twang...they rock it out 2:22 seconds in! Impressive. I'll just leave it at that.

I really could get a little more detailed about all of these songs, but hopefully you, the potential buyer, are sold on this record by now. The guys in the band should be proud of this, and I know that they already are. This work shows the progression of a band that is only getting better. So you, potential buyer, throw down that $[...] and treat yourself to the best. Hail, Hail Rock & Roll.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely worth the purchase 16. Oktober 2006
Von A. Walch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This EP has been met with some mixed reviews (not just on here, but within my group of friends as well), but I'm going to tilt the scales some more in favor of it because I absolutely love it. It brings you a nice sampling of everything the 'suckers are great at. Having heard Breaking Honey's Heart live a few times prior to this release, I was pleasantly surprised that it's on the EP as a slower track. I like the sped up, rockin version they play live, but I like this one just as much. I know that some people don't like the reworked versions of Roadworn & Weary and Creepy Jackalope Eye. Some even think of it as "cheating" to re-work 2 previously done songs for a 6 track EP. And that's cool if you like the original styles better, but it is definitely a treat to have a rocked out version of Roadworn & Weary as well as a mellow, bluesier version of Creepy Jackalope Eye. I personally feel that when bands rework their songs, especially when they do it right, it forces you to take a step back and re-examine your perspective on the song. All in all, this EP is an excellent release, I adore it, and I think it is a fine example of why the 'suckers are the greatest rock n roll band in the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Paid - an OBJECTIVE review 6. August 2006
Von seanthebastard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
should start this by saying that at my house new supersuckers releases are met with a mix of excitement and trepidation - yes trepidation. Why? Simple. So many of my favourite bands have a dud in their collection..a below par release..and as of yet the Suckers have manged to avoid this, consistantly delivering up some of the best music you can find. So each time a new release comes out a little voice inside my head says 'is this the one?'...


Having heard and really enjoyed this live I was very much looking forward to hearing what they would do with this song in the studio.Fortunately they didnt let me down Theres definate shades of joe walsh/the eagles in this, but theres also a hint of AC/DC in there as well. As a song it really works because its so damn catchy. AND theres that typically supersuckers element of cheese in there (the hand claps). The thing that impressed me is its a really well put together song.Fantastic soloing and theres a lot going on that you might not notice straight up...backing vocals, hand claps, little guitar noises, percussion.. that really make this song greater than the sum of all its parts.. its not a typical supersuckers song yet it manages to be typically supersuckers...

Breaking honeys hearts

Wasnt expecting a slow version of this song. Id heard a few 'rocking' versions at slightly differing speeds so this threw me at first. To be honest I think i prefer this song a wee bit faster BUT it really does work slowly. It seems that, like mike ness, eddies voice is getting better as he gets older. Its a good solid tune.

I like it all man

Again a song id heard a few live versions of, which i hadnt minded but had kinda felt lukewarm about. This has changed. Nice fast and punchy with some great drumming. Really kicks things up a notch and comes with a neat little piece of lead too. I approve of this song 110% (partly because its the kinda song id write[albeit poorly])

Here I am

First listen to this left me cold, however my other half immediately recognised and approved of this song. Second listen i said about halfway thru 'This is gonna grow on me". Third listen I was hooked. Great song that more than does justice to the original.

Roadworn and weary (6/6/6 version)

One of the suckers country tunes that ive always enjoyed and always seen as a great driving song, but now its perhaps the ultimate road trip tune. Great guitars in this, especially a little way into the song where it gets up a head of steam and that chugging starts. Its hard not to want to sing along with this. Again some fantastic guitarwork and a song that gets better as it goes along, to the extent that i was disappointed when it finished - i wanted more! I didnt think the boys could improve on this song..but they did!

Creepy Jackalope Eye (6/6/6 version)

Every version ive heard of this song I liked so enjoying this was a no brainer. I really enjoyed it. Part of the fun in the first listen was watching my other half (a casual suckers fan whos rapidly becoming a bigtime suckers fan[clearly shes a woman of impeccable taste]) trying to guess when they were going to speed up..you just knew it was coming..and then BANG. Fantastic ending and the last part of the solo brought such a smile to my face that it would be worth the price of the cd alone (if id paid for it). I was left grinning like an idiot

Overall this EP did NOT Let me down, and probably surpassed my expectations. If you dont own this you bloodywell should. Old fans will be pleasantly surprised, new fans will be impressed. This album is very very well produced. The guitar is great, verging on brilliant. the drums top class, and eddies vocals sound better every recording.

in short

if you dont like this, then you are probably deaf

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get "Paid" and you'll get paid again and again and... 16. August 2006
Von Tombstone Tim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So, you have 7 dollars and Ninety-Eight cents that's burnin' a hole in your pocket and you're not sure what to do with it?
Perhaps you're thinking about visiting one of the local fast-food restaurants and plunking it down on some gastro-intestinal delights, which although might be quite tasty, will only be a memory after the last bite is taken. Or, maybe you're thinking about putting that money into the bank, where after 1 year at 3.5% interest, that $7.98 will have grown to...$7.98. That's right, you didn't gain anything except 1 year of your life lost, and if the cost of living has gone up in that year, you actually ended up losing money, which always sucks.

But, if I told you that your $7.98 + shipping and handling with orders under $25,(hey, I have to be truthful here) can buy you something that will give you pleasure hour after hour and day after day, wouldn't that be awesome? Sounds too good to be true? Well, it be true and it's the latest release from the Supersuckers, the "Paid" EP.
That's right, for the very reasonable price of $7.98 + shipping and handling as mentioned prior, you get 6 great songs! Songs packed with killer guitar, rich, earthy vocals, some damn fine drumming, a touch of harmonica and various interesting instruments. Songs that can melt wax, peel paint, get you movin' and groovin', and if that wasn't enough already, there's even a truly touching love song, called "Breaking Honey's Heart", although the title song "Paid" could arguably be considered a love song,as well.

Now, I wouldn't expect someone to take my word on how great the "Paid" EP is, because hey, I'm just a stranger writing a review. So why not check out the song samples, available here for your listening pleasure. If you do, I think you'll buy it, and get "Paid" with great music each and every time you listen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Such An Amazing Band! 14. August 2006
Von T. R. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This EP is off the hook. Pretty much anything by the Suckers is guaranteed to be good. These guys are like any serious band out there, they only get better with time and a record is just a taste of the real deal. One has to see them live to truly experience the Supersuckers, they are one of the tightest touring bands out there. Ron is a freakin' awesome guitarist and Eddie paints some of the best pictures you'll ever put on the walls of your psyche. It took me several years of listening to The Supersuckers to realize what an amazing lyricist Eddie is. I don't think many people take these guys seriously, but everyone should. I mean yeah, their live show has a lot of comical moments, but like Zappa the music is coming from the heart and it's the real deal. These are talented musicians making great music and great records. I say this EP is a must have if you're a Supersucker fan and even if you're hearing them for the first time.
