Damn, I didn't know these were coming out.......I see NEH has them so I'll have to check them out.... :tumbsup:

 

That's where I noticed them.

And there price is better on these than Impulsemusic as well.

 

I think I'm going to go ahead and order them along with the Scratch and Bite cd+dvd.

Those two disc's will just knock your ball sacks off, a must have for anyone who likes Scandi metal.

 

I just have copies of them and never wanted to part with the type of cash needed to pick up originals but these Remasters will do just fine. :tumbsup:

I got the Remasters with same bonus tracks a few years back, so probably won't bother with these.

I got the 'Pleasure Principle' and 'Dreamhunter' re-issues at that time. I'm still looking for copies of 'Scratch and bite' and the s/t disc, though. :)

Well shit it looks like the Scratch and Bite DVD don't play on US DVD players. :doh:

I guess I might buy it anyway just to have the cd since it's so damn pricey for an original.

I'm going to get stoned for saying this but I mean it 100%...the three discs you guys are talking about are not even the best Treat cd's. Hell, Scratch & Bite flat out sucks.

 

There, I said it...

Nah, no stoning - everyone in the world knows 'Organized Crime' is their best disc. 'Dreamhunter' and 'Pleasure Principle' are classics, though, and 2 and 3 in their flawless discography. I know you rate s/t at the top, but you're wrong. ;)

 

As for 'Scratch and bite', it is in no way crap. Compared to the rest of them it is very simple, but that disc still has some of the best hooks being put out there in 1985. Love the album, even if it's not perfect.

When did I say they were the best Treat cds?

The Self titled with Leven will always be my favorite but I'll gladly pick these up for $17 as a remaster instead of forking over $50 for the original. Sure 'Scratch' is their worst studio release but it's still very good when compared to other bands of the same genre/style.

I never claimed you said they were the best. That seams to be the popular opinion of most here. You & I agree (and Geoff & I don't as usual...he likes to be wrong a lot) that the S/T is their masterpiece followed closely by Organised Crime. I like all of their cd's with the exception of S&B...I would spend that $17 bucks on something better if it were me. If the dvd played in the USA then it might be worth it ;)

I have copies of them all but to get them at that price instead of $50 than I'm gonna jump at the chance before these are out of print as well. It's the damn obsessive compulsive collector in me. :doh:

I can't make up my mind about buying them....I have original copies of 2 of them, only missing the Scratch & Bite CD and I've been hesitant to buy it because of the negative reviews....The release I'd like to pick up remastered is 'Organized Crime' since I only have a boot of it....

I noticed that Treat have released remastered versions of "The Pleasure Principle" and "Dreamhunter" with bonus tracks.

 

Has anyone bought these yet? I was going to and was wondering about the quality.

 

Whereas I've pretty much liked everything in their catalogue, there's a good reason they re-issued these albums first. Their 2 best IMHO, in fact "Dreamhunter" is utterly flawless.

 

The remasters are pretty average though & definitely not worth getting if you already own the originals as there's no discernable difference in sound quality. Plus they're utterly spoilt by horrible bonus tracks (a terrible cover of a ZZ Top song on "Dreamhunter", & a weak live song on the end of "Pleasure Principle").

Is the remastering any different to the versions released a few years back with the same bonus tracks. I am guessing not!!

 

The 'Scratch And Bite' re-issue with the DVD that was released last year is well worth shelling out for if you haven't already got it.

No, it's just a re-pressing of those original remasters I think. Even at loud volume in my headphones I don't hear a difference between them & the originals....

I think the remasters are the same as the one from a few years ago.

I agree, my favorites are s/t, organized crime and muscle in motion.

 

 

Mine all in that exact order too bro. MIM kicked major ass and just needed proper mastering.

I shouldn't even get into this discussion but I'll throw my 2 cents in anyway.

 

First off Treat's Dreamhunter is the best Scandi metal disc ever to hit the light of day followed by Masquerade IMO. Organized Crime is a bit different than their first three releases because it has a heavier sound, no doubt Organized Crime is brilliant but to each his own everyone has their own tastes.

 

Now for the self titled with Mats Leven I thought totally sucked I'm not a big fan of this disc at all, totally different I think they tried to the new wave sound and failed miserably at it.

 

There I said my piece.

New Wave Sound? Hmmm. As you said to each his own but on the self titled disc all I hear is good hard rock and not any new wave anywhere to be found, IMO.

It's a total 180 from what Treat did before Leven, nope...no sir don't like it.

I agree it's totally different but I guess the reason I love it is because Levin is an incredible vocalist and it was the first thing I heard from Treat. :tumbsup:

Strangely, the two Treat CDs that I have found impossible to find are the two self titled ones.

I do actually have the best of version on cassette, but it would be nice to replace it given the chance.
