Extreme's best recording displays this band's considerable talents to their best advantage, particularly those of guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and vocalist Gary Cherone (as of this writing, sounding a lot like Sammy Hagar as the current singer for Van Halen). The album's success has mainly been due to the soft-spoken hits "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted," but there's plenty to like on this album, which explores the very general theme of love in a cynical world. Extreme had a lot on their minds when they recorded Pornograffitti, as evidenced by the songs "Decadence Dance," "When I'm President," and "Money (In God We Trust)." Aside from the aforementioned ballads and the loungey "When I First Kissed You," this album rocks out, examining serious themes with considerable humor, which prevents Extreme from ever sounding preachy or condescending. --Genevieve Williams

There is no doubt that this album, being the band's 2nd studio release, is a modern day classic in rock/metal. The band's debut album was largely unknown, at least in the Uk, and it was this second far superior record which brought the band well-deserved fame and fortune.

From a guitarist's perspective, I have to say this is one of my all-time favourite albums. Nuno provides us all with a humbling demonstration of fast, intricate and incredibly inventive playing. His tone, helped by the crystal clear production, is also superb.

This is, however, an album not just about great guitar riffs. The band demonstrate the rock songwriting art with great aplomb. There are so many infectious tunes on this and each member of the band contributes to the overall effect, particularly Gary Cherone who gives his best vocal performance for Extreme.

This is without question one of the great rock/metal records of the 90s and any self-respecting music fan should own a copy.

I love this CD. It is a rock album, but with influences from fnk to jazz to blues to soul........ what a band.
Nuno is a world class guitarist, and plays some scary stuff - he does a lot of tapping, but in an original way.
The songs are all good, and don't forget, More Than Words topped the charts the world over. But songs like Get The Funk Out, Decadence Dance, Suzi Wants.... and the title track are the reason so many people love the record, and it should be part of every happy home.

Bought to replace a tape that got eaten by an ancient cassette recorder, for those that remember Extreme this was their greatest album so just had to be added to the collection.

I guess this was one of my absolute favourites when I was around 20. It still is.
Great ROCK songs. You can feel the extreme joy the band has in playing. You can feel the fun they had putting together the lyrics. Feel the "let's do it" experimental ideas in the sometimes unorthodox details added before and after every piece.
This is great fun, great lyrics (some might misinterprete them as very hostile and provoking and unethical - I just consider them as pure fun and sarcastic satire).
This is great rock, great music. Right from the speedy »Pornograffitti«, through the album's best piece »He-Man Woman Hater«, to the beautiful jazzy ballad »When I First Kissed You«.
EXTREMEly great satirical hardrock album!

I first heard extreme off a crackly casette from my guitar tutor next door. I came away with that cassette and he hasn't had it back since! More than words, though some will be annoyed at me mentioning it over the rest of the album, is the one that stands out to you on hearing it first of all, and is beautiful. Nuno Bettencourt ..... he either inspires you to continue with guitar or makes you feel it's all futile! he's unbelievable. Maybe not because he tries out new stuff ALL THE TIME, but just because he has a differnet dynamic, a different passion to his playing. He definately catches your ear!!
And, Gary Cherone explores a completely different sound in his voice, an instrument in its own right, throughout this album. More than Words is also a notable song on this point - beautiful.

After I first heard it I played it almost constantly in the car for about 4-5 months and in the end had to throw away the tape to get the music out of my head for a while. 12 years later the CD is in my collection and it is still my all time favourite (listened to in moderation!). The tracks go from the extreme of Funky Rock guitar music through to softer rock ballads (get the blood pressure down again).
If you like rock music and this is not in your collection it can only be because you have not listened to it yet.
While you are here make sure you pick up "III Sides to Every Story". Its a long album packed full of great tracks, almost a match for Pornograffitti.

I bought this tape when it came out. For years it was in my hi fi constantly. I used to listen to it on the way to college and work. I was devastated when the tape was chewed up and worn. I now have the CD. The album has so much range to it. Some easy and hard rock stuff. IT IS A MUST GET. "Get the funk out" is one of my faves.
Buy it today! You will not regret it.

Having seen them perform the complete album this week it reinforces their importance and phenomenal skills within this music genre. I love every track and the songs remain totally relevant to today. Gary Cherones voice has improved over time if you are afan I would recommend his EP Cherone nobody does a love song like him.
