I have been a fan since the debut and especially the PORNOGRAFFITTI album. When I heard that they were releasing a Blu-Ray of a live PORNO show, I was psyched to say the least. I was fortunate enough to see them live back in ’92 at an outdoor festival and they were killer. Now over two decades later I get to see an up close version.
From the moment I put this into my player and turned it up I was in awe. It is one killer disc. Gary, Pat and Nuno still got it. Gary still has the voice along with the moves and energy while Nuno is just mind-blowing amazing. He is a monster on guitar. There is no other way to describe it than in the simplest terms. His playing is Godly. Simple as that. He attacks the guitar and what comes out will blow you away. The sound, melody and especially the solos cannot be beat. Again, a monster on the guitar. Gary is no slouch either. He still has it and nails the highs. The energy and ability to engage the crowd puts him up there on the list of top entertainers. The backbeat of Pat new drummer Kevin is as solid as can be. Yes, it would have been ideal to have Paul behind the kit but he has moved on to another successful career in the biz and that is to be respected. Kevin is an excellent drummer who adds his own style to the songs while maintaining the essence of the original.
The entire PORNOGRAFFITTI album is performed along “Play With Me” from the debut and “Cupids Dead” from III SIDES TO A STORY which is an excellent way to end. Musically I find Extreme is the Heavy Metal version of Queen. Extraordinary vocalist who really knows how to work a crowd. A distinct and innovative guitarist that cannot be duplicated. A heavy and solid rhythm section that never miss. Add in the excellent background vocals.
Any and all fans of Extreme need to own this as well as guitarists. It is an amazing show that is visually stunning. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
