    I`m doing my manly house cleaning cranking Extremes Pornograffitti and for those who only know Cherones work on VHIII should check out this disc as well as the three other Extreme releases . Extreme had alot of VH influence especially Nuno (their guitar player)they did alot of concept pieces on their disc ,thats probably why they didn`t last long . Cherone even looked the part of a rocker back in the day fronting Extreme , you can usually find their discs in the used bins pretty cheap . Check em out if you haven`t already , they rocked!

    Pornograffitti is the only Extreme album I own and I like the way they played different styles. Of course my favorites are the rockers by far. As for 'More Than Words', I still hate the song.

    I really never cared for Extreme. I used to think Tesla was Extreme, and I thought I liked Extreme, until I found out it was Tesla that I liked, and not Extreme... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Extreme's last album "Waiting for the Punchline" is incredible.

    Fuck their other shit.

    Punchline is raw, underproduced......guitars heavy in the mix......sometimes panned to one side.... like old VH........this album has riffs......not polished metal with a message.

    Straight ahead rock. Cherone singing his balls off. Nuno playing with shitload of volume, yet not a lot of distortion. Sounds like the fuckers are in the room with you playing.

    I started with Punchline.......bought "3 Sides" or whatever its called......and stopped there.

    Punchline is the shit. If its cheap.......buy it......if you don't like it.......send it to me.......I am looking for another copy.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    The first Extreme is the shit!!! Pornograffitti is great and Three sides is good (except for the last few). Waiting was....well...I am still waiting. Sorry, TOO damn different from the real Extreme. Kind of like VH3...good album, but way too different from VH.
    Get Extreme 1 and jam away!
    Just go for it!
