“Extreme” was an excellent debut album. As a whole, all of the songs on this album seemed to flow together pretty well. I never really understood half of the “sexual puns” until I was a lot older. The songs are cleverly written to where the sexual puns could have a double meaning. When I was a child, I never really got the “other meaning”! LOL!
Each song on the album could have been its own single. The song “Flesh and Blood” could have been on any zombie soundtrack! It’s a fun song to listen to. “Play With Me” is a “guitar heavy” song. Hearing Mozart's Alla Turca: Allegretto in A minor” used as an intro was brilliant! Nuno really shows off some mad guitar skills! “Watching Waiting” is certainly the highlight of the album. Great riffs and great harmony on the vocals.
The album also included a lot of “childhood themes”... the “Lollipop Kids” provided backing vocals on both “Mutha” and “Play With Me”! One more random note to end my review! Usually, the Japanese editions have more tracks. This is true of most albums. But for this album the Japanese version included fewer tracks on the vinyl edition than the U.S. counterpart.
