With their new project Reinvention, Grammy-nominated Superchick goes back to the studio to reinvent their favorite songs. Drawing inspiration from the 100+ TV shows, video games and movies that use their music, Superchick has created a soundtrack album for fast car chases, giant fighting robots, teen romance and bad guys walking in slow motion. Three new singles including "Still Here" and a solo breakout from bassist Matt Dally entitled "Let It Roll," accompany nine reinventions pulled from every album in the band's discography.
"These are songs we love; it means a lot to us to get the chance to go back into the studio as a band and rebuild them from the ground up. We have the technology. We can make them better, stronger, louder," says Max Hsu, the band's founder, producer and studio recluse.
Having taught themselves wireflying for the "Cross The Line" music video, Superchick plans even more ridiculous and dangerous videos for these cinematic respins, to begin shooting immediately following their headlining tour this spring with John Reuben. With over three quarters of a million records in the marketplace - including a previous remix project (Regeneration) which has scanned more than 100,000 units to date - and music heard regularly on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV and ESPN, Superchick plans to turn Reinvention up to 11, coming soon to a stereo near you on April 20t

Superchick Reinvention Review| Posted October 08, 2010
Superchick gives fans an impressive album with their second remixed project Reinvention. Combining nine remixed tracks with three original tracks, Superchick offers fans courage and hope.
Reinvention begins with “Cross the Line,” becoming a special anthem to go outdo everyone’s expectations, and proved to be a perfect beginning for Reinvention. Next comes “Rock What You Got,” which I thought to be the greatest redone track, with more of a funky beat, and is followed by the first original track, “Let It Roll.” This track is sung almost entirely by Matt Dally, guitarist and vocalist of Superchick. He sings to “Mr. Anger” and “Mr. Worry,” giving the reasons why they are no longer needed. “Karaoke Superstars,” “Hey Hey,” and “One and Lonely” are also given very funky “bassy” drumbeats. These songs are followed by “Breathe,” a track that I did not personally enjoy on Rock What You Got. I was, therefore, happy with the decision to remix this track, an effort which turned out well. Beginning with a slightly scary techno sound, and containing more drums, this is a job well done. Superchick kept the original vocals on this track. “Bowling Ball” is given high-pitched keyboard sound and a stronger, more techno beat, and is followed by the remix of “Pure.” I do not think this track is any better than the original, but it is certainly not worse, and surprisingly contains stringed instruments. “Wishes” is also remixed, and is given a catchy subtitle: “Wishes (Teens Falling In/ Out of Love mix),” and is appropriately called so. The best track on Reinvention, in my opinion, was the original track, “Still Here.” Being on the slower side, with gorgeous piano, “Still Here” speaks of pressing against all impossibilities. It builds up suddenly with the arrival of the chorus. Reinvention ends with another original track, “You.” Barely containing any music, lead singer Tricia sings to her husband speaking of how she will always be at his side through highs and lows. I did not particularly care for this track, compared to the remaining tracks.
Overall, Reinvention is an excellent remixed project from Superchick. However, I did not find “You,” to be a very appropriate track for this record, and I was disappointed that several of these tracks were also remixed on Superchick’s original project Regeneration. Each of these tracks, though, is improved greatly with the addition of mostly techno drumbeats and sometimes funky. Any Superchick fan, and fan of techno and funk will enjoy Reinvention from Superchick. This reviewer rates this project 4 out of 5.

This album, I think, was a really great project. I love how Superchicks' message is always so inspiring and positive, It just lifts me up, and I'm sure it really helps people that are going through certain things in their lives. Good job!!

Superchick releases an album of mostly remixes, but for somebody like me who's hardly heard their
music, it's as good as the original.
The album begins with the non-conformist anthem "Cross The Line (Box Office Blockbuster Mix)", a song
I have heard the original to (along with "Pure"). I've often said it should be in the EA Sports NHL video
game soundtrack. The remix has a slower beat and less laser effects. "Rock What You Got (Fight
Underdog Fight! Mix" has a cool jazzy feel to it. (Were they thinking of the Underdog cartoons/movie?) "Let
It Roll" features Matt Dally's vocals. Now this is one guy who could carry a solo album. Watch out Bieber!
(Just kidding. I don't even know what Justin sounds like.) The "don't sweat it" pop-hop track is very catchy.
"Hey Hey (Vampires vs Cheerleaders Mix)" gets its name from the whispered verses and yelling chorus.
"Breathe (Don't You Die On Me Mix)" is mellow and sounds like BarlowGirl.
"Pure (Brand New Day Mix)" boasts violins and a slight Latin/lounge sound, a contrast with the original's
warped computer music. "Wishes (Teens Falling In/Out of Love Mix)" would work well on a Disney
Channel original movie. (Not that I've ever seen one, but I get the idea.) "Still Here" is an endurance song
that just cries out to be made into a Haiti video. (Has it already?) Ending off the album is its shortest track
at 2:14, the gentle acoustic "With You", which I'll someday hear on a commercial for insurance or the
neonatal (premature and sick babies) ward of a hospital.
Superchick has discovered the secret to creating versatile music. With sounds ranging from loud rock to
quiet pop, "Reinvention" is aptly named; indeed, stylistically they seem be constantly in a state of just that.
What on the surface seems confusing reads like a page out of your best friend's diary. (Not that you ever
AMAZING| Posted April 18, 2010
I think That this cd is totally amazing it was a really good remix cd even though i didnt know some of the songs im going to have to get the cd.I have seen them in concert and they played some of the songs off this cd so i was happy when i seen them.
Superchick, Reinvention| Posted April 15, 2010
This is a very good album. It has a very pronounced pulsating sound that helps emphasis the lyrics. The sound is defitaly and uniquely Superchick especially if you have ever heard any of their other albums or ever heard them in concert before.
Good tunes| Posted April 14, 2010
I've listened to Superchick before and have been for a while but never hard core into them. I like their "Stand in the Rain" song. That is my favorite. This album seemed to be a redo of some of their previous songs; sort of like a greatest hits almost but with many different songs. I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to others to listen. I think I like their ballads more often than not.
I think I'm a Superchick fan again...| Posted April 14, 2010
I've been waiting for them to live up to their Beauty From Pain album, and I think they've done it...! I wasn't crazy about the Rock What You Got cd, but i like how they fixed up the songs for this cd. :)
Awesome!| Posted April 14, 2010
I wasn't sure what exactly to expect with this album. I knew I loved what Superchick already did, and that I loved their sound so I gave it a try. I love that even though Superchick has been together for a while and they've done a good amount of music they can still come out with a great sound. I loved everything that I heard, from the remixed older songs to the songs I'd never heard before. All I can say is awesome job Superchick! You've definitely produced yet another great cd :)
I was hoping for "Regeneration"| Posted April 13, 2010
Love that they remixed "Karaoke Superstars" so that get big points.
This album is a remix album, it is not a "redo album" like Regeneration was. I was secretly hoping they were going to redo these songs and improve them, but they are just remixed.
I really enjoy all the remixes, so they did a smashing job makin them sound fresh.
And the three new tracks sound like didlys i will come back again to listen to.
