I had no interest in this at all, as I thought it was just Gary filling in time while Nuno was doing his Rihanna tour. But... in a moment of clarity/drunkeness/whatever I bought it off Amazon, and I have to say, I'm impressed! I did think that the guitarist was a bit Nuno-lite, but I guess that's inevitable. However, once I got over that I really started to enjoy the songs. Gary sounds great, and the overall production of the album is, in my opinion, better than Extreme's Saudades album.

Well worth a purchase, and it gets better with a few listens.

You should try Tribe Of Judah.

The guitarist is a fella called Leo Mellace, now runs a recording studio somewhere, can't remember where' but he is AMAZING. He clearly knows his theory inside-out an back-to-front.

It's got some weird moments like a little creepy girl singing, but its also got some awesome ones.


I shall check out Hurtsmile on your recommendation.

I've got the TOJ album Matt. I could never really get into it, I found it quite a hard listen. I remember liking Left For Dead, but apart from that... Kind of like Gary doing Nine Inch Nails. I should give it another try.

Hurtsmile is a more listenable, traditional rock album, albeit with a few Extreme/Gary isms thrown in.

The first video, for "Just War Theory", is here:- http://www.noisecreep.com/2011/02/25/gary-cherone-and-hurtsmile-get-aggressive-with-just-war-theory/


Trust me, if you don't dig it at first, it will grow on you. Turn it up nice and loud, even though the sound quality isn't the best.

sooooo that guitarist... he's going for the nuno waist coat and necklace look I see.


During the verses Gary sounded too punky (love pistols) for me.

I'm sure I've heard the main riff before somewhere

Just watched the video on the extreme web site. Catchy tune. You can tell that's a Cherone playing guitar, they look like twins.

So Hurtsmile is playing in Rochester, NY in October. My brother's band is one of the bands opening. Deciding if I should make the 3 hour drive to check this out. Maybe get a chance to meet Gary.
