    Treat - Tunguska

    Opinions will vary as always, but to answer your question, for me, Endangered and the other tracks that make up the first half of GOG are all slightly better than my favorite songs on the new one
  2. Canadian AOR band Tanzen's album "Piece by Peace", originally released in the '80's only on cassette, is to be re-issued on CD in September as part of the Lost Jewels series (via Steelheart Records) https://www.aorheaven.com/index.php/englisch_b/tanzen-piece-by-piece-4-digitally-remastered.html?___from_store=german_b

    Joe Lamont - 'Secrets You Keep' (1985)

    Thanks for sharing the info, I did not know that. I've read positive comments about Shelter - First Stop before, but have never heard the album and not familiar at all with Steeplechase, but I intend to check them out now

    Joe Lamont - 'Secrets You Keep' (1985)

    He wrote and performed a few songs for movies during the 80's, but I think this was his only album

    Groundbreaker (Overland/Säll) - s/t

    I gave this a spin and I agree this is a really good album. Overland sounds great and the production is nicely done. A good balance between Sall's guitar and the keyboards. This will almost surely make my top 10, possibly even top 5.

    Ted Poley - Modern Art

    On paper this sounded promising. Some collaborations work (W.E.T.) and some don't. This one falls into the latter category for me. A few solid tracks but by the end of the album I just wanted to pull out my copy of D2's debut and listen to the Ted Poley I know and love.

    Groundbreaker (Overland/Säll) - s/t

    New one is better than the first two promo tracks, but still not quite hitting the mark for me. I still intend check out the full album and hopefully I'll enjoy the songs more after a few spins.

    Treat - Tunguska

    Gave this a listen today and think it is a pretty good album. As has been mentioned, there aren't any true standouts (10/10) this time around. And I don't think there are too many songs that would have even made the final cut had they been recorded during the sessions for their last two releases. So when you first listen to the album I suggest doing your best to not compare it to CDG or GOG and I think you will find it to be an enjoyable listen. While I give them credit for coming up with some unique song titles/subject matters, for me, it occasionally detracts from an otherwise good song. For example, Progenitors is a catchy tune, but I am unable to really get into that chorus. There really aren't any "bad" tracks, even if I still don't care much for the main guitar riff the guys used on Rose of Jericho. But if I am picking my favorites they'd be similar to what others mentioned (Undefeated and Heartmath City) and I'd add in Riptide.

    Magic Dance - New Eyes

    New song sounds really good. I don't think I've heard too many musicians say "this album was written and recorded in my bedroom"

    State Of Salazar - Superhero

    Nice tune with Marcus sounding in top form on vocals once again.

    Supremacy (Colombia) - Sirius

    Good tune

    Japanese Editions

    Valid point, things are different nowadays, but I think the cost factor of the physical releases still holds true today and the digital versions, in most cases, you will find the same track lists as those physical versions just converted to a different format
