Extreme's debut album is sometimes uneven but always fun. Van Halen influences are prominent, which is ironic given singer Gary Cherone's post-Extreme career. This album, like all of Extreme's work, is notable for Nuno Bettancourt's guitar playing, but the songs aren't bad either, mostly examining childhood from a playful but oddly mature perspective. "Kid Ego," their first single, is here, as well as "Mutha (Don't Want to Go to School Today)," "Little Girls," "Big Boys Don't Cry," and the rock-out finale "Play with Me." There are a few ballads as well: "Watching, Waiting" is particularly poignant and surprisingly spiritual in content. This album showed Extreme's considerable potential, which peaked with their second album, Pornograffitti. --Genevieve Williams

Guitar heavy, anthem style hair metal that rates above average. This was the first effort from Extreme, and was good enough to earn them Rip magazines rookie of the year award. Features guitarist Nuno Bettancourt and singer Gary Cherone leading the way on songs like 'Little Girls', 'Kid Ego' and others. But the highlights are definitely the teen aimed anthem 'Mutha (don't wanna go to school today)' and a song that made it on to the 'Bill & Ted's excellent adventure' soundtrack entitled 'Play with me'. Fun, 'bubble gum & soda' styled glam metal made for 80's fans.

Killer cd! I was somewhat surprised when I actually sat down and listened to each one of the songs, every tune truly kicked your eardrums in. I personally don't have a favorite track, however, Little Girls, Teachers Pet, and Kid Ego I would recommend that you crank it to 11 !

At first listen, this début album seemed mediocre in its delivery! A couple of tracks, when FIRST reviewed, appeared to be simply composed as filler material. Quite a bit of its composition echoes forth earlier artists instrumental techniques and arrangement styles. As a listener, I had to make an effort to resist branding Extreme with a stereotypical label right out of the gate. Unfortunately, this group's worse critic was the passing of time, and the popular trends of that time. The release of this album took place during the dying age of 80's rock. Hair band's had reigned throughout much of the decade, and a changing of the guard was clearly taking place amongst the differing musical genres. Okay, enough of the history lesson...
This album exhibits great lyrical and instrumental composition! Gary Cherone's vocal execution is "A" 4/40 on many tracks. Rough enough to ride the jagged edge of heavy metal, but yet, well refined during tracks like "Rock A Bye Bye." And harmony! My god! The WHOLE band is able to contribute their vocal artistry on many of the songs contained within. I now have an adequate defense against the claims that that harmony is dead in today's modern music. Sure, my ear picks up reminiscent tones of earlier bands like Queen, but come on! I believe that even Freddy would be somewhat pleased with the little "Rock A Bye" ditty. No wonder Van Halen wanted Cherone as their front man when Sammy made his exit.
Nuno Bettencourt is phenomenal on this whole album. Perhaps I am hearing evidence of influential artists like Vetto Bratta, Brian May, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, and tidbits of others, but the clarity of keyed notes and technical mastery brings forth a refreshing cacophony of sound fidelity.
Bottom line!

This is a (1989) album that Extreme ,the band put out and it is a vary good debut album for starters. This CD contains both soft and hard rock music on this album. The music I had to get used to at first, but now I love hearing this full studio album by Extreme. This band started in (1985) and is still preforming today as of 4/19/15. This album can be considered as hard rock or hair metal or glam rock to some others. I recommend this album to get a good taste of this band'. it is their first album also. and if your a hard rock music collector like me, you may want this CD for you or someone you know. If you ask most people about this great band they may tell you that this kind of music on this album is pure hair metal.. But I like what some people call hair metal just as much as music it self

There is 11 songs and this CD is about 45 minutes long.

Oh thank goodness for Extreme. This album repersents the birth of the band later to save us in the 90's from the horad guitar trash littering the FM airwaves. Couple of the songs on here we could live without but over all excellent music. Got to love Play With Me, which was in the movie Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure. Also has some good quality slower song like Watching Waiting, or Rock A Bye. Great stuff!!

In the late 80's and early 90's it was about how in your face you can get with your sound. Nobody was better at this art form then Extreme and this is where they started.

What I mean about "in your face" is not about speed, not about heavy and not about how popular you can get. It is about putting emphasis on every instrument including the vocals while still making the song melodic. Extreme did this, well to the Extreme.

What I find is a shame is that thier biggest hit and probably the only song Extreme will be remembered by is the Mega-hit "More Than Words" When it comes to music, does it really matter what the general public thinks. If you thought like them, you wouldn't even consider buying this CD no less be reading this review.

As for the record itself... read on

Even though this is probably the bands 3rd best recording, it still has a few stand out tracks. Mutha (Don't Wanna go to School Today) is a true 80's rock Anthem. Wind Me Up is filled with killer licks and overthe top vocal production. Play With Me shows off Nuno's A1 guitar skills. Not every track is top notch though(there are some weaker songs toward the end of the disc)

Overall this is one of the better releases from the late 80's hard rock genre. Ignore all who say Extreme was just a one hit wonder with a ballad and see for yourself.
