My Favorite Album

Recently I've been feeling Nostalgic. Of all the albums I remember from high school this is one of my favorites. Unlike a lot of late 80's and early 90's rock bands this group is not all about sex, rebellion and drugs; although, some of their songs my parents didn't approve I enjoyed them as a teen and I will continue to enjoy Extreme as an adult.


When this album first came out in 1992, I hated it! Not because it wasn't good but because I was used to Extreme's first two albums, especially Pornograffiti, that absolutely rocked hard. This comes out and I, like most critics, weren't ready to see a 'hair band' touch on a serious subject like war, peace, theology, etc. plus Extreme doing a concept album was a big risk. III Sides is a three part act that deals with everything from why we wage war, the ramifications of war, and even questions these things to God and at times questions the very existence of God and why He would allow such things to happen. Yours, Mine, and The Truth are the three parts of this epic album that tries to answer these questions. Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt were TOTALLY on when the created this masterpiece and considering what is happening in our world today, the album holds as much relevance today as it did when it first came out. It is deep, thought-provoking, and offers perspective on subjects that you wouldn't really expect from what the critics called a 'hair metal' band. There is a Japan release that has a 3" mini disc with the song, "Don't Leave Me Alone" which is essentially a plea/prayer to God. Phenomenal, introspective song that I really wish they would have included on the main disc itself as it adds to it that much more. In my opinion, Extreme really needs to re-release this on it's 20th anniversary release date in it's entirety along with a concert from that era. I feel it would sell tremendously. Do yourself a favor and get this album, you will not be disappointed!

Top notch

By far one of the most musically solid albums I've ever heard. Extreme fan from the moment I stumbled across them by accident one night at a club called Hammerjacks in Baltimore back around '89. Blown away then and have never lost interest since. I've worn out FIVE copies of this album on first cassette then cd. A TOTAL TRAVESTY that "don't leave me alone" was allowed to slip into obscurity due to time restrictions on cd and never brought back for iTunes. One would think it'd be brought back now in the age of digital media with devices capable of holding obscene amounts of music. But why would they? It'd be too easy. Nonetheless, even twenty years dead and gone since its release, one if my fave albums of all time


Formed: 1985 in Boston, MA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Extreme's music was never easy to classify, since it rarely confined itself to heavy metal, hard rock, or pop. The Massachusetts-based band formed in 1985; guitarist Nuno Bettencourt had already played in a local band with bassist Pat Badger, while singer Gary Cherone fronted his own group with drummer Paul Geary. The two bands eventually merged, and Cherone and Bettencourt...
