Good album, better than what the Smoke has to offer for me.

Far from Teslas best, but easily head and shoulders above Forevermore.

I failed to mention in my post that Gary hasn't sounded this good for a long time, imo.

I've listened twice through and gotta say it is one of the best non-Extreme albums by any of them. Everything on it is in Gary's wheelhouse...balls out rockers and acoustic ballads. I had already played the hell out of Rock n Roll Cliche and Hello I Must Be Going...now I'll do the same to no less than 4 others over the coming days, mainly the epic Where Do We Go From Here which is a song of the y

Well, no question he wanted the alternative modern rock thing. Don't get me wrong I love all of Nuno's solo stuff (though Dramagods was his weakest and most blatant attempt IMO), but it would be hilarious if Pat had some sort of success with one of the several catchy tunes on the album. Hey, crazier things have happened.

Great album. Funny that Pat has the catchy, hook filled album Nuno tried for and never got for years.

Hey, to each their own. I know the guy has a diehard following, so hence his sold out shows and ability to shill as much crap a Gene Simmons. As for his sound...does nothing for me. He is filling a void for middle aged white guys looking for a "contemporary blues sound". Can he play? Sure. I've attempted to get into his last few solo albums and they leave me as flat as Kevin Shirley's p

The most narcissistic guy around it seems...especially for someone with such a vanilla sound. What's his signature song again? Just as I thought, crickets.

I'll give you that his last two solo albums, Peace Sign and 24 Hours, had more noodling than I prefer. However, the four previous: Go Faster, Into The Black, Get Up and Change, are virtually shred free, no overplaying, just great everything across the board. Anyone who doesn't expect shredding or overplaying from all three members on the Winery Dogs should just move along.

Well, Richie has been the King of my music world for the past 15 years. He is without a doubt the total package: great songs, great voice and great player. Those who only know him for shredding are really missing the boat.

I'm a HUGE Sass fan. Her best work, as most others mentioned, is Rats, followed by Racine. The S.U.N. project is fantastic as well. Her late '90's stuff, Present & Hot Gossip, was more poppy...like she was going after that Lilith Fair crowd. Didn't work and she confused the fanbase she had built with her rock albums. The following two albums, Get What You Give and From Dusk Til Dawn are more

Hmmm' I am a fanboy and am having a hard time with the new disc. Two misses in a row for me, Peace Sign was lackluster as well. But of course lackluster RK is better than 99% of everything else out there.

First CD was good, but longwinded. No need for a pop rock band to have 6 songs over 5 minutes long. They need an editor to tighten things up.

I just gave it a listen from beginning to end. I prefer it over dead silence, but it is definitely background music. Revelations was head and shoulders above this.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/SUN-Something-Unto-Nothing/177605938956922 Fans of Rats rejoice, Sass finally found her balls again. No Stevie Salas, but Tichy rocks it. Pretty straight forward stuff, but nice to hear Sass giving her pop/adult contemporary phase a break.

I always chuckle at the lack of songs/songwriting cracks. All subjective, my friend. I'm sure everyones definition of what constitutes a good song differs. I listen, I like, I singalong and want to listen again. Some of the songs on some recent 100% reviews are as exciting to me as watching paint dry. How about this? I really dig the noise Gary & Co. made for this release.

Nice to see a few others dig the disc as well. For those that didn't, at least most of you gave a disclaimer that you're not big Extreme fans to start. I do agree, reviews are what they are and one should decide for oneself. However, misleading people is another a story. I just think Andrew went a tad overboard with the experiemental comments, or maybe I define experiemental differently. This i

As a long time visitor of the site, I appreciate all of Andrew's hard work and commitment to the scene. As a long time visitor of the site, I also know it is not Extreme (or Extreme related) friendly. Never has been, never will be. Which is fine, as most "reviews" of their works have been courteous at least, though the 52% given to the first Mourning Widows is certainly an eye roller. S

As with everything, one mans trash is another mans treasure. Gary's vocals have always worked very well for me, and I hear a bit of Daltrey in them, especially more evident from Punchline era on. I like the rawness he has discovered post III Sides. For what it's worth, my trash bin is likely sacrilegious 'round here, with the likes of Glenn "subtly is not in my dictionary" Hughes and

Can't wait for it, loved the demos from a few years back. Gary's vocals are polarizing, no doubt, especially for those who maintain that smooth and clean is better. Hurtsmile sounds like raw rock n roll, and reminds me of Waiting For The Punchline, ya know, the Extreme album that has aged the best for not sounding like a certain era. Can't wait to see the inevitable Boston gig(s).

I'm a full fledged Kotzen nutswinger since '93, does no wrong to these ears...well, nearly no wrong. Anyway, I got bit with the Kotzen bug after hearing him on the legendary Stevie Salas album, The Electric Pow Wow. He sings a cover of an obscure R&B tune "I Don't Want To Be With Nobody But You" by Dorothy Moore. Killed the vocal and I NEEDED to hear more of that voice. Luckily fo

I read that if you play these new ones on a Blu-Ray player, a hologram of Jon appears that proceeds to shake you down for any loose change you may have on your person.

It would be more interesting to have Andrew revisit his 95% and higher albums that are 5 or more years old to see if they still rank. IMO, it's a bit hasty to rank an album that high when it really has not "stood the test of time." Again, just my .02 cents.
