Product Description

G. Love and Special Sauce's Superhero Brother is another entry in a career that now spans 15 years. It's been a long, successful run for the Philadelphia native and self-described 'Hip-Hop Blues artist,' whose self titled 1994 Okeh/Epic Records debut was certified Gold on the strength of the MTV hit, 'Cold Beverage' and a non-stop performing ethic that still has them playing more than 150 shows a year. Superhero Brother combines both political and party songs. The album is a reflection of the band's eclectic recipe for its Special Sauce, from tasty, post-Hip-Hop Beatles-influenced blues-rock 'Communicatio', spicy tropical island rhythms over an Archie Bell and the Drells 'Tighten U' groove 'City Livin'' and well-seasoned Chambers Brothers-style funk-rock crossed with Cream's 'I Feel Free' ('What We Need') to sweet, blue-eyed Philly soul 'Crumble'.

Great New Sound June 26 2008
By Hugh M. Willett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In opposition to the previous reviewer, I thought this was a great album. With the keys added the whole band has gained a rock structure that they just couldn't tout as well before. The opening track is a clever meld of genre's, one of G. Love's old tricks and City Livin will get stuck in your head in a matter of minutes. I must say i did not like Wiggle like a Worm, it didn't really fit into the rest of the album. P,L&H sounds just like a good old Stones song. Georgia Brown and Crumble are my other two favorites on the album, the former being a twist on the common blues progression with some nice vocals by G. Love and the latter has some great piano playing and is a great twist on a gospel like groove. What G. Love has shown recently, if he has a lack of talent in amazing lyrics, is he has a great sense for production, the harmonica is also improved on this album and I'll be damned if you don't like it. G. Love knows he isn't out to save the world, he just wants to bring everyone a little fun.
More than your money's worth July 19 2008
By Remo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Listen, I don't know how anyone can give this cd a bad review. The only bad thing I found about this cd is it is only 12 tracks which is unlike g love. But even though it is a couple songs shorter than what I wished it would be it is still great. It starts out with "Communication" which has the same style as "astronaut" from the Hustle. "City Living" is the second track and it is a different style but still a good song. "Wiggle Worm" is a party song. Every song on the record is really a party song but "Wiggle worm" tops them all. It has the same sound as "Cold Beverage", or some old G. The harmonic is raw and it is a great song. If you are reading this you prolly heard "Peace, Love, and Happiness" already. The next song, "Soft and Sweet" sounds alot like "Hot Cookin", and is the same style has alot of the songs on Lemonade. "Wontcha come home" is the next track is more of a reggae/ska type song like "Give it to you" from the Hustle. "Crumble" is a softer song. I can't really think of one of his songs to compare it too, but they put more keys on the track than any GLSP song I ever heard. It is still a good song, softer, but still good. "What we need" is my favorite song on the cd. Funky, fresh, and filled with energy. The style of the song is a mix between something from Philadelhponic and The Hustle. "Georgia Brown" is my least favorite song but it still good. It's just a typical G-love song hear, kinda like "gone fishing" from the Hustle. "Whose got the weed" is an awesome song sober, and I have a feeling it is better under certain conditions. "Super Hero Brother" is the perfect closer. Raw acoustic blues.

Again, it kinda sux that there are only 12 songs cause your gonna want more. And I would prefer a couple more acoustic songs on their as well. But this is a cd you can't go wrong. Out of all his cd's this one has the most energy and I can't wait to see him jam this songs out live. If you like G love even the slightest bit, buy this cd. It is way more than what you are gonna pay for.
The band that never sleeps! June 30 2008
By Abby B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
G. Love brings a new meaning to the phrase "I'll sleep when I'm dead". This man brings it with each and every release, this album being no different. "Communication" starts the album off with a bang and everyone loves getting a little down and dirty, just like in "Georgia Brown"! The dedication G. has to his music is a rarity to find in musicians these days and he brings down the house with another powerful album. With the refreshing sounds of Jimi Jazz, Houseman, Mark Boyce backing G.'s strong styles and vocals, you can't go wrong! By far the best band live, they deliver on all their albums, leaving me yet to be disappointed. Listening to some of these beats over the past year or so on some live releases and YouTube, I've been awaiting this CD for some time and absolutely love it!

Thanks to G. Love and Special Sauce for another smooth, blues, jazz, hip-hop, and funk infused album! I appreciate the hard work...you shine every time!
G Love strikes again Nov. 18 2008
By M. Pisano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been listening to G Love for probably the past ten years and i would definitely say that the music that he is putting out now is much better then his early stuff. His past album lemonade i would give 5 stars and would even compare it to the bands most famous album Philadelphonic. Superhero brother has the new sound of GLASS with some mellow fun songs like "peace,love and happiness" and "soft and sweet", but at the same time has the older sound which can be heard on "grandmother" and "communication". I do feel that they rushed this album a little and would have like to see more songs on this album. Overall though def one of his better albums and a good buy for any GLASS fans out there.
Good album Aug. 8 2008
By Jeffrey Gehring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
G. Love is a fantastic artist and has great views on life. This album is great. Lemonade was a great follow up to Hustle which sold a lot of copies. Superhero Brother is different however, since he stepped it up and played more up beat songs that slower songs. But you got to give him credit for recording "Who's Got The Weed?" after years of playing it live, now was a great time to lay it on a track for an album. Balls to the wall and definitely diggin that. Keep up the good work.
