New video.

 

 

9 songs off this album made my best of compilation.

This song wasn't one of them.
I find it pretty boring.

I'm still not a fan at all. Still lukewarm about the album as a whole, to be honest. But I'm glad to see others getting more from it than I. As one of my favourite bands, I like to see them enjoying success even if it's not necessarily one I can participate in. It's a nice album for me, but I'm not overly drawn to it, unfortunately. :(

Been listening to this one a lot the last couple days and it's really grown on me.  Feels like a continuation of "Ghost of Graceland", which was an incredible album.  This one is just a hair below that.  Lots of great tracks with "Man Overboard" being my current favorite right now.  Great stuff.

Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). B)

I was actually spinning it on Thursday/Friday too and stand by my comments. Solid album, but easily the weakest of their last three. Really missing some knock-out blows. But solid.

Agreed. It's by far the weakest of the last 3. None of it is bad per se, but there isn't any killers on it.

I'll join you here.....for me it's my favorite of the last 3 albums.

All great and all 90+ albums, but I just really dig the new one.  There's really nothing on it I dislike whereas there's 2-3 songs on each of the previous couple albums I didn't care much for.

Okay. I must give a re-review of this since I've been playing it quite a bit.

The thing about this release, the second half of the album is much better than the first IMO.

I like the opener "Progenitors". Solid tune with a memorable chorus.

It's the next 4 or 5 tracks that are good but nothing amazing. Not filler but definitely not killer.

Once we get to the single "Build The Love" and the subsequent tracks "Man Overboard" and "Riptide", the rest are more in line with what I want to hear from Treat.

My scores:

Progenitors                 7.75/10
Always Have, Always Will     7.5/10
Best Of Enemies             7.25/10
Rose Of Jericho               7/10
Heartmath City               7.5/10
Creeps                      6.75/10
Build The Love              7.75/10
Man Overboard                 8/10
Riptide                       8/10
Tomorrow Never Comes        7.75/10
All Bets Are Off              7/10
Undefeated                  7.75/10

I have the Japanese version of this album and it contains a pet peeve of mine:

The bonus "acoustic" track that's basically the same thing as the original track.  Yeah, it's "different" but c'mon.  An acoustic version of a ballad that's already basically a piano track?

That's pretty much what my list would look like though I'd probably ditch "Tomorrow Never Comes".

Obviously the pr-song ratings differ a little, but I also have this album currently rated at 75%. 

For the record, and by comparison, I rated 'Coup De Grace' @ 87% and 'GOG' @ 84%.

'Creeps' is okay at absolute best. Just listening now and it just feels like the entire band is holding back in those verses. Weak verses. Hmmm, yeah, the chorus leaves a lot to be desired too. Weak lyrics and yeah, whether I like/dislike or am indifferent about it, it's actually quite a bad song. If it wasn't Treat I admit I'd probably absolutely hate it, lol.
