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.

i would check it out.  definitely sound a little dated, but some great guitar work and good arena-rock type songs.  kid ego is a good tune.

I do, I usually remember them when I heard Queen 's "Love of my life", due to their performance at the Freddie Mercury tribute, also I remember Gary Cherone and his baneful adventure in Van Halen III...

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...

The chorus and intro have kind of a Queen feel--no real surprise there.

new song

http://artists.ultimate-guitar.com/extreme

"Comfortably Dumb"

Pretty cool. Sounds early 90s. I don't think this new album will top 3 sides, but it's not bad.

Okay, the album is out.  I'm definitely on the fence as to buying it or not.   Anyone have any opinions to offer?

I think it's good. If you liked their old stuff, I think you will dig this.

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...
