Lol, by your comments was expecting something abysmal (but because I'm a total pessimist)... :rolleyes:

Not their best song, OK, but quite good for me. If this is in the weakest ones the level will be high (let's hope!).

Has a clear touch of the ReVertigo album (possibly Wikström, member of both bands, has composed it?)

I like it plenty.

I do agree it doesn't touch Coup De Grace or Ghost Of Graceland's best tracks.

Let's hope there are better songs than this!

If you weren't already a fan of Treat, that song isn't going to sway you.

But I don't think such a human being actually exists...

Does the new track tickle my scrotum, as Geoff would say? Not exactly, but it's very solid and listenable. No complaints thus far.

Sounds great. Catchy as hell. Also something my girl will enjoy on these summer days with the windows down and her blonde hair flowing in the wind

Well... my balls tingled. 

I think it "building to nothing" works to it's advantage, because it leaves you wanting more. And you should want more. This is Treat, after all. 

That album cover is questionable, however.

Wow! That’s a nasty album cover and has nothing to do with the album title.

For me, feels like a GOG song. Would have fit nicely on that.

Not that quality either imo.

Have to say this song is growing on me some after a few more listens.  Still wish it picked up a little more in the middle but not a bad song.  It'll be better if it's sandwiched between some more up tempo songs on the album.

Definitely feels more like a GOG type song than CDG though if I had to choose 😉

I was just listening to Ghost of Graceland today. These lads are definitely not ready to retire. 

No kidding.  That album is really, really good.

I want this now, but in the meanwhile... Happy Asteroid Day! 😀

Asteroid Day (also known as International Asteroid Day) is an annual global event which is held on the anniversary of the Siberian Tunguska event that took place on June 30th, 1908, the most harmful known asteroid-related event on Earth in recent history.

I like it.

I don't compare to their old stuff.
Prefer to compare to other stuff released this year.

 

As with most sons I like instantly, they either turn in to amazing songs that I never tire of, or turn in to songs that start to bore me quickly. Time will tell

The chorus is solid, but initially I don't care much for the main guitar riff

Initially not "wowing" me but not a bad song either.  I like the song concept though after reviewing exactly what the Rose Of Jericho was lol.  I knew it was a plant or something...

Could see this being a grower 😁

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
