Sugarfist is the fourth full-length album by the Christian pop punk band Eleventyseven.

The album was released on October 26, 2011 under Sony Japan. The album was officially released in the iTunes store on November 7, 2011.[6] The regular album contains five out of the six songs that were on the band's previous release of the Quota EP, plus seven new songs. The Japan edition of the album contains four extra songs on top of that.

It also marked the final full-length studio album by Eleventyseven, per their disbandment in 2014,[7][8] until their reunion in late 2016 and release of Rad Science in November 2017.[9][10]

Reception[edit]

The album received generally overall successful reviews from multiple music sites, many of which claimed it was their best album endeavor to date and that the band has become "more comfortable with their sound with each progressing album".[4]

Sites like Indie Vision Music gave the album a very positive reception, but complained of the fact that half the songs were from a previous EP, as opposed to "12 new songs".[2]

Jesus Freak Hideout's review of Sugarfist overall praised the album's sound as well as complimented the already solid tracks that came from the Quota EP.[4] They however noted that the album was lower in spiritual content than previous releases.

Notes[edit]

  • On May 5, 2017, the Eleventylife podcast covered the album's creation, production process, and each song from the original twelve-track release.[11]
  • There is a huge alteration in the lyrics to "Wasted". The song says in verse two: "Kiss it like a victim" while the lyric booklet states: "Feel it at the mention".
  • The acronym JRX found on the "Suburban Love" remix stands for The Jellyrox, lead singer Matt Langston's solo electropop project.[12][13]
  • An acoustic version of "Book of Secrets" was released exclusively to the band's street team around the time of the Quota EP's release.[14][better source needed]
