Music Fantasies Revisited

It's been almost a year of waiting, and it finally happened!

I wanted to see Balkandji live, and I didn't have the time, the mood, thе company, etc. Last night however I went to see them... hold your breath... with two total strangers. It was a great concert, great company, I am thankful once again.

The good things come to those who wait. This is true of one of my favorite albums of all time, which I had on a cassette tape long ago, in another life:

Extreme - III Sides to Every Story (1992).

Quote from the above article:

In spite of being considered by the band to be their finest work, III Sides To Every Story
was a commercial failure, since it did not feature a hit single such as "More Than Words", from its predecessor Pornograffitti. Also, the particular brand of hard rock that Extreme was known for was falling out of flavor with the rise of the grunge movement around that time.


Yours, Mine, and the Truth.
