Extreme - Waiting For The Punchline (1995) Retail CD
A brilliant album. The band weave heavy, upfront, funky guitar lines, crystalline rhythmns and honest lyrics to form a tapestry made of steel wool and honey. A lot of fans were probably disappointed by the stripped-down bluesier mix of this album, but there were some (and to be honest, they are the lucky ones) who understood that Extreme were less about big band funk and more about the message.We're talking 'bout love, superficiality, spirituality, politics, humanity and the tendency for man to find new ways round every corner to screw the pooch for themselves and those around them. Stories withmore… such a bleak message often forget that the purpose of tales is to give hope, that lessons can be learned. But out of the ashes of big hair rock and irresponsible consumerism come meditations on cynicism or vanity, the charged guitar soloes and crisp, crunchy rhythmns rising up phoenix-like, painting the sun across the landscape of despair. Even if it means shrugging your shoulders and admitting that if life is just a joke, the best thing to do is get it.These are world weary men, no longer peddling cartoon satire and snake oil funk. These are men that history showed had reached the end of their line. But in a final valedictory act of brilliance they heralded the tougher, rawer sound of the new millenia's rock and roll. Nuno and Gary hold hands whilst the old world burns.Not bad for poodle haired nancy boys. Listen, weep and give thanks. Rock music can mean something more than squeezing zits and not acting your age.
