Description

Extreme: Gary Cherone (vocals); Nuno Bettencourt (guitar, keyboards, percussion, background vocals); Pat Badger (bass, background vocals); Paul Geary (drums, percussion).

Extreme's self-titled 1989 debut made the Boston quartet quite a "buzz band" in the hard rock underground, but it wasn't until their sophomore release one year later, PORNOGRAFFITI, that the band scored their breakthrough hit. In the spring of '91, the lovely acoustic ballad "More than Words" was released as a single, and instantly became a smash hit (nearly a year after PORNOGRAFFITI was first released). And while they scored another hit with the similarly styled "Hole Hearted," Extreme's new pop fans must have been surprised when they heard the rest of the album, which was comprised mostly of hard rock/heavy metal tunes.

The album was also the band's first stab at writing a concept album--it dealt with the media's subtle yet constant use of sex in advertising and it's effect on the public. If you're in the mood for rock with a progressive edge and loaded with six-string wizardry (courtesy of Nuno Bettencourt), just check out "Decadence Dance," "When I'm President," "Get the Funk Out," It('s A Monster)," "He Man Woman Hater," and the title track.

What the critics say...

Spin (11/90) - "...a sinuously funky, streetwise, harmony-drenched effort..."
