Extreme: III Sides to Every Story (1992)

extreme iii sidesBy Scott Goldfine

Extreme, the rock quartet that mined platinum with its sophomore effort, “Pornografitti,” is back with “III Sides to Every Story.” This grandiose undertaking, equivalent to a double LP, is presented in political, introspective and spiritual parts. Influenced by Queen and the Beatles, the band is best on hook-heavy songs like “Rest in Peace.”

Elsewhere their ambitions lean toward pretension.
