This CD is so cool in every respect. The songs are well written and fun to listen to (see "When I'm President"). The musicianship on this record is incredible--it's no wonder Eddie Van Halen chose Gary Cherone to be the (short lived) vocalist for Van Halen. As for Nuno Bettencourt, I think he's a very underrated guitar player. Maybe not underrated, but unknown? At least I rarely ever hear about him, and I'm a guitar player. Check out the intro to "He Man Woman Hater," called "Flight of the Wounded Bumble Bee" (and YES, Nuno *did* play that, contrary to what another reviewer said...that was *not* Dweezil Zappa. He played on a different song.).
The recording quality of this CD is great. It's how every metal/hard rock CD should sound. The guitars aren't all muddy and washed out. They're loud, but clear, and you can still hear the vocals and everything else over them. Sounds GREAT cranked up. Extreme's best album without a doubt.

Toward the late '80s I was getting very disillusioned with all this glam rock. Everyone sounded the same. Then Extreme came along. I bought this cd for More Than Words, but was extremely surprised by what I heard. Normally, it takes a while for a cd to grow on me; to hear the music; to look more closely at the lyrics. Not so with Pornograffitti! Immediately with the opening song, Decadence Dance, and all throughout I was totally blown away by how original and exciting this band was. Nuno is a guitar wizard, guitar god, guitar genius and every other superlative you can think of. Their vocal harmonies are amazing , Gary's lyrics are very creative and poetic at times, and Nuno's guitar work and solos are breath-taking. This is just an amazing cd on all levels. It revived my interest in music and continues to be my all time favorite work by Nuno Bettencourt. I would recommend this to any and every rock fan.

In every era of music, there's those bands that just have talent coming out their orifices, yet somehow slip through the cracks of the mainstream audience. Extreme is this era's underrated wonder. Sadly they are categorized by their two mainstream hits (from this album) 'More than Words' and 'Hole Hearted'. While they're both great songs, lord, there's so much more to this band.
From the power-chord kickoff of Decadent Dance, the listener knows that their proverbial a**es are about to be kicked for an hour. Aside from the occasional ballad, this album rocks out without a shred of filler. Cherone finally settles into a comfortable Freddie Mercury-ish vocal style that suits him and the music perfectly. Nuno's guitar playing is kicked into high octane from their debut album, it's more well-timed, restrained, yet way out of the league of 95% of the musical population. The rhythm section is at their best on this recording, as well.
This album's only shortcoming is that it loses it's momentum towards the end. Suzi (Wants her all day What?) seems to be a filler song, and 'When I First Kissed You', while certainly loungey, loose, and different, won't appeal to everyone. It picks up again with Nuno's blistering 'Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee' guitar interlude, and the final three songs are more masterpeices.
Pornograffiti is the album to start with when looking into this sadly overlooked group. Their best was yet to come, though.

Pornograffiti showed Extreme at their peak. A step forward from their fine debut, Pornograffiti showed the talented band pulling out all the stops. Extreme were categorized as a hair metal band, a claim that is off the mark as they were way more ambitious. Most know the band for their gigantic hits "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted" but they are so much more. "More Than Words" hit #1 and for good reason. It's a beautiful song. A modern classic. "Hole Hearted" was the campfire singalong of the era. However, Extreme were no two hit wonder. One listen to Pornograffiti or their followup album, Three Sides to Every Story, will spell that argument quick. "Song for Love" is a powerful anthem that was nearly as memorable as the hits and was actually closer in spirit to Queen (Brian May positively compared his band to Extreme after Freddie Mercury passed) than the hair metal of the day while "When I First Kissed You" is a cool lounge jazz song that the band pull off with ease. From this point, it's mostly funk-metal and hard rock but every track here has a chorus or arrangement that is very catchy as evidenced on the album rock hits "Decadence Dance" and "Get the Funk Out", the anthems "Li'l Jack Horny", "Suzi (Wants All Her Day What?)", and "Money (In God We Trust)", and the heavier "It ('s a Monster)" and the title track. Nuno Bettencourt, whose guitar work is stellar throughout, also plays a sick version of "Flight of the Bumblebee" that leads into "He Man Woman Hater" that shows his immense chops. All told, in the so called hair metal band era, this is one of the truly must own albums of the time.

I was really late, discovering these guys. Sure I had heard "more than words" and "hole hearted" but I always just kinda blew them off. In 1994, the heyday of grunge and doom-rock, A musician friend of mine turned me on to Extreme. It seems that most guitar players listen to these guys because of Nuno Bettencourt's guitar playing. It's pretty amazing. To me these guys came across like a breath of fresh air. This album is full of suprises. The guitar playing is some of the best I have EVER heard and Gary Cherone's vocals are solid. My only problem is actually keeping a copy. They always get "borrowed" by my friends. After seven years, this album has never gotten old. One thing that seperates Extreme from the rest of the bands to come from their era (Poison, Whitesnake, Kix, SLaughter) aside from talent, is their song-writing skills. They sang about more than just driving fast cars and getting laid. Their debut album was good, but this is way better.
It's still nice, in a world full of Godsmacks and Slipknots, to be able to throw something like this in the player from time to time. Great album.
