Har Mar Superstar graces the cover of his most recent album in a triple stack of shirtless, woolly, jorts-sporting glory.

His belly seeps over his coochie cutters' waistline as his temperament adjusts from 70s porn star nonchalance to a guffaw-sprouting smile. Yet, the Ron Jeremy doppelganger is more than the sum of his scantily clad man-bits.

On "Bye Bye 17" Sean Tillmann morphs from the raunchy sex-obsessed Superstar of past records to a man with incantations reminiscent of actual heartbreak. Unlike his previous titles where he embodied a licentious teenager, on "Bye Bye 17" Tillman seems ready to grow up. The high school senior is gone and here is Sean Tillmann, a man in his thirties dealing with characteristically mercurial women. Oh, woe is Har Mar Superstar.

Never fear, despite his torment he finds a brassy soul groove to coat his desperation on "Lady, You Shot Me." "We Don't Sleep" incorporates tangy horns filtered through fuzz to articulate foggy mornings-after. The Motown keys of "Restless Leg" indicate the shakiness of cerebral atrophy induced by a lifestyle of less-than-scholarly pursuits. The new Har Mar Superstar may act like a kid, but his adult mind knows it is time to mature.
