TREAT - COUP DE GRACE


rockdoc

Recommended Posts

This is either a blatant rip off or a cover number -

Mind you I dont know who originally wrote the track. If Treat didnt they could be in trouble..........esp changing the name of the song :unsure:

 

After watching the video, I think the Treat version is crunchier.

 

If Treat (or one of its members) didn't originally compose the song, then I would assume it's just a cover.

 

Heck, if Jaded Heart can cover The Backstreet Boys and Children of Bodom can cover Britney Spears, then anything is possible. :lol:

 

If its a cover why would they change the title of the track......right dodgy if you ask me.

 

& for the record I prefer the Stanfour version ;-)

Ok, this album has some REALLY good songs.

 

Example: I'm Not Running (hi-res complete song)

 

Starts off with a bit of a modern vibe, but then takes off bigtime!

Dan,

 

They must be taking the piss with this track surely??

By the way the Stanfour debut album is excellent if anyone's is interested.

 

Cheers

 

Hmm...Anders Wikström has been writing songs for quite a few Pop-artists in the last few years (together with Fredrik Thomander), so it probably is written by him! At least that's what I hope...

Well STANFOUR wrote hardly any of the songs on that debut album of theirs, so expect this song wasn't theirs to begin with. Either way this is the worst-sounding song on the TREAT disc so I'd be happy to just skip-over this one as it's fucking awful IMO (both versions). Proper boy-band stuff. Wouldn't be surprised if WESTLIFE of BACKSTREET BOYS are next to record this tune...

 

There really are some seriously killer songs on this thing:- "All For Love" (one of their best ever songs IMO) & "Skies of Mongolia" sound among the best, with "No Way Without You" (stunning chorus) and "The War Is Over" not far behind. Some tunes don't really grab me, like "All In" and closer "Breathless", but with 14 tracks then that's not surprising....

Well, you're entitled to your opinion... no matter how wrong it may be. :whistle::lol:

 

Seriously though, while it is not the strongest track on the CD, it is by no means "awful" by any stretch of the imagination.

Not if it had been sung by the BACKSTREET BOYS or maybe one of those Idol Winners/Losers (Bo Bice or Adam Lambert maybe), but when you're talking about one of the top names in Melodic Rock then surely they can do better than a standard/mediocre journeyman-type song.... That pop-song sounds really out-of-place alongside killer Melodic Rock tunes like "All For Love" IMO.

I guess I just don't get that. Personally, I loved Jaded heart's cover of Backstreet Boys' "Larger Than Life" as well as some of the other pop covers that hard rock and metal bands have done.

Yeah that's true, but this is TREAT. Probably my all-time fave Melodic Rock band with an almost flawless back-catalogue. I don't want them doing covers or journeyman songs as they don't need to. Let bands like STANFOUR take tunes like this...

*chuckle*

 

So the band does a cover and it ruins their catalog for you?

 

Seriously?

 

Who says they HAVE to do it? Maybe they just wanted to do it because they liked the song. Maybe it was originally written by one of the members (we still don't know) and they wanted to put their spin on it.

 

You "don't want them doing covers." Yikes.

For the record, the reason I'm not flinging jism of joy all over this thread is because, for some reason, I can't ever open those samples from my home computer, Dan. When I open them at work they open up right away and play in Windows Media Player. You got any tips why they don't play on my home computer and what I can do to fix it? :(

 

I get this message:

Their cover of Paid my dues is probably one of my fave Jaded Heart tunes, and I dont even like the original version.

Well I don't mind covers if they fit in with the rest of the disc and are something a bit different. The last time TREAT did a cover was "Hush" which was on the end of the re-issued "Dreamhunter", and it was terrible and the album was far better without it. Btw: this song was written by Savan Kotecha who's a professional songwriter (often writes with Max Martin/Andreas Carlsson). I noticed another song on the Stanfour disc was recorded by David Archuleta ("Desperate") recently, and there are others that have been used by several artists.

 

Don't mind bands re-doing songs if they like them or using these formulaic songwriters (Martin/Carlsson co-wrote the best songs on the last EUROPE album), I just think TREAT write better songs themselves & would've preferred another song in the vein of "Mongolian Skies" or "All For Love" rather than this tune...

Backed! Awful original version, but Jaded Heart's version is a MONSTER track. As I said in a couple of other threads recently, I prefer rock covers of non-rock songs generally, as they end up sounding awesome, and so different to the original that it's like a new song anyway.

Tim, just out of curiosity, have you heard the full disc....or are you going on samples?

 

I almost fell about laughing when I listened to 'Mongolian Skies'....just sounded ridiculous. Good chorus but ludicrous lyrics.

 

Im sure that this will turn out to be a very good melodic rock album......its just I have the feeling that the new Crazy Lixx album is going to murder it in every department.

 

We'll see................

Not as ridiculous as some of the lyrics I heard from last year. :whistle: I thought it sounded like a monster tune, and still think this will be the top AOR/MHR disc this year. I've only heard the soundbytes that Dan posted but you can hear every chorus so you get a good idea of the song quality. I'm still pysched by this one....

FIREFOX INSTALLED!

 

Firstly, Glen you're an absolute creep for preferring the Stanfour version to the Treat one. Though admittedly, the chorus was maybe a little stronger on the Stanfour version. Maybe. Don't quote me. Either way, I prefer the Treat version. :lol:

 

Secondly, Tim's right here. I don't think either version is good. :lol: Just not a good song, imo. I certainly wouldn't skip it on the CD as the chorus is still pretty cool, but f*ck that intro is so f*cking annoying. :lol: Great brief solo, though. Man I love Wikstrom's playing.

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
