I thought they were good, esp "3 Sides." Got lumped in with Warrant and Posion etc, which wasn't really fair.

He Man Woman Hater has one of the best opening solos ever. They're a mixed bag overall, though. Some of their songs are good, but some are abyssmal. More Than Words is awful.

Agree on that, but I do like VH with Sammy Hagar

on topic I only remember more than words, apart from that nothing, only the tribute to Freddie which Gary sang Hammer to fall and it was quite descent  yes

They were just a Van Halen rip off really - when u listen to them its hard to get passed the obvious fact they are trying to be Van Halen and not doing it as well, though the guitarist is great

Extreme was NOT a Van Halen ripoff, Bon Jovi was.

I liked Van Halen 3. Not a fan favorite by any means, but a misunderstood album.

I think it wasn't fair to Warrant and Poison.  Smiley

I remember them and I really didn't like them.  Especially More than words.  I actually heard an instrumental version of that song in an elevator.  No joke.

I liked a few of their singles... back in the day, 1993, I believe Smiley

Whole Hearted and More than Words were really sweet, simple songs.  Brings back memories of early teenage crushes.

A friend bought me 3 Sides as a joke.  There are some pretty good songs on it, but there's some pretty crappy ones too.  I do agree that they are a Van Halen soundalike.  Personally I'd take Poison or Warrant over them any day.

Used to like them a fair bit actually.

3 Sides To Every Story was a fair decent effort, i love the track Warheads. ok

Pornograffiti was ok to as has been said, some good songs some awful, they were a very mixed bag.  There is a fine line between good cheesy rock and bad cheesy rock, they slipped into the bad a fair bit.

There not bad to listen to just for old times sake but there were so many bands that did what they did but BETTER so i'd only dig out an old record of theirs if i was REALLY stuck for something to listen to....

I'm a fan to some degree. Own Pornograffitti, 3 sides to every story, and waiting for the punchline. Oh and I have the best of too, which has a nice version of Cupid's Dead.

Nuno is one of my favorite guitarists. Unbelieveable stuff.

I really like almost all their songs. I have only heard Kid Ego and Play With Me from the first album. Nuno has unbelieveable riffs. The thing I really like about in his playing is that he's a really melodic player, and his riffs keep you busy through out the song if you're playing along. I haven't even touched his solos yet.

A special mention to Rise N' Shine as a whole.. It's just awesome from the beginning to the end.

It's kind of funny that they're reuniting, since Nuno refused to be involved in any way with VH1's "Bands Reunited" show. ? They tracked down all the members - even original drummer Paul Geary, now a manager for mostly nu-metal acts - and they all essentially said, "There's no way Nuno will do it." ?And he didn't.

Then he shows up in Perry Farrell's Satellite Party (wtf?!?!), which turns out to be fairly short-lived, and he quits/was fired/whatever.

Now, Extreme announce a reunion tour and new album. ?Me, I was a big fan in the day, most due to Nuno's guitar work. ?I stopped after "3 Sides," as I thought "Waiting for the Punchline" was a horrible album, at least what I heard. ?I'll be curious to see what they do from here on out, although I wonder why Geary isn't a part of it...

compared to other bands during the same time period extreme was one of the better acts out there.  nuno rules and cherones vocals were pretty good.  their first album is really good and the next two had some great tunes as well.  i do think they unfairly got lumped in with all the hair metal bands. 

one of the worst band names ever though.  is there any product that hasn't been called "extreme" something?  hihi

the debut didnt doo too much for me.

just for for pornograffitti, thats where its at.

III sides to every story....the first quarter of it is good. this is explained if you read up that it was intentionally a triple album but had to be cut. so the first disk would have been all rock, so when its cut you only get a few rock tracks.

the rest change, you get piano tracks n other shit after it which bores me.

Extreme has a new album out 8/12, it's called Saudades de Rock. If you go to http://www.myspace.com/extreme you can check out the new song "Star," and it's pretty good. Sounds kind of retro--kind of pop-metal-ish. It's pretty good, if not great.

Listening to "Hole Hearted" from their myspace page for the first time in AGES--still a great song.

I heard "Star" on the radio last night, and actually turned it off.  The chorus sounded *horrible.*  If that is the "single" from the album, then I don't have much interest in checking it out...

I did like their old stuff, with the exception of the "Waiting for the Punchline" album, which I thought was awful.  If it's anywhere in the realm of "Pornograffitti" or "III Sides," that's a good thing...

I had to post at Rolling Stone.

anybody who puts their name as "Another History Lesson" acting like they know it all have to be put in their place with ignorance.

Saying Bon Jovi "HID" during grunge. Please. they had one of their most successful albums to date at the height of grunge.


Also though, Van Halen........ Jon crushes Dave,Sammy and Cherone combined.

How to make a Bon Jovi album (circa 1980s)

Take one cup of Van Halen (remove the balls beforehand)
Take one cup of Bruce Springsteen
Add four cups of suger
Add five cups of pussyness
add 12 cups of gayness
add a pound of shit
add a cup of pretension 

Bake for one hour at 7800? Fahrenheit

Remove from oven and cover with cheese, lots of cheese. Ideal for soccor moms, 12 year olds and Jersey girls with big, big hair.

I have to post this here, since it can resonate to some GNR fans  hihi

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/extreme-guitarist-on-not-having-released-new-album-since-2008-were-disappointed-in-ourselves/


Nuno: "You should have already seen another album ? at least two by now, if not three. We're kind of disappointed in ourselves
that we haven't released something yet, because we have so much material, and we've been going back and forth... I'm happy
to say that we have a good actual vision right now of what we want to do. We have a good 20, 25 songs that we're almost
wrapped up with. My goal is that by the fall, we have a new album out."
