'European' Pressing, after the pressing on the bands own Magicatalog Records was sold out in a wink, here is another pressing! 300 copies on Magicatalog came with a brilliant screenprinted sleeve, expansive on discogs now. Here is a official second pressing of this record. We already did their first album few years back, yeah we are in love with the noisy garage punk smashers of THE SUEVES. It's lame to talk about how fantastic this 3rd album is, so here is what the experts had to say.... 'Simplicity, in all its ramshackle glory, is one of the charms of garage rock. That appeal can wear off quickly though when a band's songwriting is subpar and/or the execution is poor. The Sueves new record is the perfect example of how rewarding it can be when a band challenges itself; when a band is not afraid to go beyond self- or other- imposed boundaries of the genre; when a band invests a little more time in writing and recording music. On Tears of Joy, The Sueves sound more layered, diverse and dynamic than most garage bands, but also in comparison to their past selves. They do so without sacrificing any of the energy and excitement of their earlier work. Mop Bucket is a modern garage rock classic. Short and fast songs like Alexxxa, Find The Right Fit and Stare will draw in punk fans.

Other songs (e.g., Deflect The World) move into The Stooges territory. To be sure, the Sueves have created their own enterprise, and never sound like copycats. Overall, Tears of Joy is a thrilling listen, a kick to the nuts of those who complain that guitar music nowadays is redundant. I am pretty confident that the allure of the record is more likely to expand than wear off upon further listens. That leaves us with one concern. Now that the band has ran out of primary colors for their album covers - red for their debut, blue for their second one and yellow for Tears Of Joy, what will they do next? Based on this record, the Sueves are just getting started.' 'I stopped reading NME and other craps for hit-machine a while ago, but I kept this old habit of believing that the third album is an important moment in a band's life. Well, OK. If I had to compare Tears of Joy with the first two (I spent long nights with), I'd say it's overall slower but more melodic. I would say that Joe Schorgi's voice remains one of the most recognizable in the whole scene. I'd say that the album is incredibly complex, between the eighties spirit of "Diet Genetics" (which hides a horde of zombies), the pop melody of "Feneral Hugs", the almost Lou Reed-trash-period-mechanics of "Dance Dance Whatever", the punk 77" of "Deal", the quasi-psychobilly of "Find the Right Fit", and "He Puts Down" which seems to be the punk version of a Taxi Boys' (see).'
