Extreme are one of the most underrated bands on the planet.Sure, "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted" were smash hits, but they never got any much more recognition than that.This album is by no doubt their best, and it's looesly concept album of sorts about trying to find love in a sex-craved society.This album features a diverse range of styles, featuring prominently Funk Metal (Get The Funk Out, When I'm President, among others), glam metal (Decadence Dance), jazz (When I First Kissed You), and folk rock (Hole Hearted), to name a few.Gary Cherone is quite a unique singer, sporting a very good vocal range.Pat Badger is possibly one of my favorite bass players of all time, and Paul Geary keeps a great drum rhythm throughout the entire album.Nuno Bettencourt is my all time favorite guitar player at the moment, and his guitar playing as had a huge influence on me.Standouts include the funky anthem "Get The Funk Out", the mid-tempo "Li'l Jack Horny", which has possibly one of the best guitar riffs of all time, and the best Extreme song, and one of the best album openers in the history of music, "Decadence Dance".
