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.

Those were the days Smiley

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.
