Editorial Reviews

Long-awaited 2010 release from one of the most legendary bands of the Scandinavian Melodic Rock scene. With such records as Organized Crime; Scratch and Bite and the self titled release in 1992 which to date is the last studio release from the band. Drummer Jamie Borger went on to play with Talisman and main songwriter and guitarist Anders Wickstrom went on to become a world renowned songwriter for Gotthard, Agnes and N*Sync amongst others. The band reunited in 2006 releasing a 'best of' with two new songs and played on several festivals all over Europe.

Every song is filled with great guitar leads, harmony vocals and very strong bass and drum fills.

Funny thing about all of this was when I was living in Germany back in the early 90's and I stumbled upon a small German record store just outside my army base. I began to check out all the new music from the European bands to see what was out there since I was new to the European music scene. Among my favs at that time were bands such as: Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Yngwie Malmsteen, Europe, along with the Scorpions, Bonfire, and Accept from Germany.

Then I stumbled upon a CD from a band called 'Treat' which I had NEVER heard of?? The store owner allowed me to listen to a sample from this band. The name of the CD was 'Organized Crime' and from that first sample back in 1990 I was HOOKED on this band!!! The melodies, the guitar riffs of Anders Wikstrom, the beat, the strong keyboards and the pulsating bass playing really attracted me to these guys. And when I really started getting into them...they were GONE!! Broke up in '93 and were never heard from again. It wasn't until 2006 #13 yrs LATER# when they released a 'greatest hits' CD along with 2 'new' songs.

Next thing you know...rumors came about that this band 'might' be re-organizing itself once more?? And yes, here it is folks..4 yrs later in 2010 with 14 brand spanking new tracks-----Treat is BACK!!!! And back with a vengeance I might add!!!! Again we have a new Treat 'sound' with a classic twist. The 'new' Treat of 2010 hasn't missed a beat and this CD proves it!! Of all the Treat albums I have to admit that 'Coup De Grace' has outdone itself by a large margin. The sound is better. The songs are of a band which has matured itself with grace.

The vocals of Robert Ernlund are as good now as they ever were!! The awesome riffs of lead guitarist Anders Wikstrom are STRONGER than EVER!!!

Treat have come out of nowhere to deliver a rock solid melodic album that will be among the absolute best this year. Let's start with the amazing intensity of this album. Every song is a winner and there is no point at which this album takes a breather. The performances by all the band members are excellent and the vocals are huge. This has got one of the best production jobs of recent times with massive guitars and drums and excellent keyboards rounding out the sound. The riffs and solos sound great and there's that thumping rythm section too. The highlight for me is the fact that every song has a powerful pre chorus and chorus combination that explodes out of the speakers. There's alot of outstanding songs on this album from the opener "The War Is Over" and the groovy "Paper Tiger" to the power ballad "A Life To Die For". I can easily recommend this to fans of quality melodic hard rock music like House of Lords, Leverage, and Eden's Curse - certainly one of the best of 2010.

If melodic hard rock is what does it for you, this album is perfect. Songwriting and production is firing on all levels from beginning to end. I was unaware of Treat's sound until this year, so I went back and listened to the old stuff. Don't be fooled by their "hair-metal days" releases. Those are Treat's "growing-up" days, with lots of talent and chops, but definitely tied to the "eighties" scene. What has been crafted here is mature and smart. This group deserves every ounce of praise they are getting. Don't stop now, guys! I'll be waiting for the next one!

ONe of the best produced AOR rock albums in awhile. Features fantastic songs, thoughtful lyrics, the right touch of harmonies and awesome sing along chorus' with some heavy crunchy tasteful guitarwork. The rocker "Skies of Mongolia" is favorite track. Pounded my steering wheel into submission listening to this one. Sounds like a mesh of the rhythm section of RATT, the vocals/harmonies of Survivor, and the guitarwork of Whitesnake. A must buy for AOR fans. Do not miss out on this one!

This is a solid melodic rock CD. Not a bad song to be found. One of my top 10 all-time favorite CDs. Who says good rock isn't being made anymore.

My title says it all. No, I am not a fan of Treat. In fact, I find their earlier stuff embarrassing, from the standpoint that it was clear that these guys were just mimicking the successful "hair metal" sound of the times back then. These guys have grown up, and it is clear they are now comfortable writing and performing to what they believe in. There is not a weak track to be found here. I have a different favorite every time I listen to it. This CD has remained in my rotation for over two years now, and it still has not worn out its welcome with me. It manages to appeal to listeners of AOR, Melodic Rock, and Hard Rock... it truly has something for everyone... and it's all great.

Europe was the obvious success story from the Swedish melodic rock scene in the 1980s, but despite a baffling lack of attention from U.S. audiences, Treat played nearly as large a role in that scene. Their brand of ultra-catchy melodic rock helped define the Swedish melodic rock sound and influenced a generation of bands. So it was a big deal when the band came back with a new studio album in 2010. For their comeback album Coup de Grace, the band's lineup includes nearly all of the people responsible for Treat's classic `80s albums, so expectations were understandably high going into Coup de Grace.

Coup de Grace is a first class melodic rock album by a band that's been around long enough to have all but perfected their craft. The guys are older and wiser, so it's not another Pleasure Principle, packed with songs about living fast and rocking hard. Yes, there are love songs, and yes there's that trademark Treat melodic approach, but the songwriting reflects life experiences and conveys a sense of maturity that simply wouldn't have been possible back in the `80s.

Of course, all the maturity in the world won't help if the songs are weak, but fortunately that's far from the case with Coup de Grace. Anders Wisktrom's guitar playing is absolutely smokin' here, with huge hooks and melodies that instantly lodge themselves into your brain. He really is the heart and soul of Treat's sound, and between his guitar playing, songwriting and production job, he's managed to put together an album that stays true to the Treat legacy while bringing the band roaring into the new era. Then there's Robert Ernlund's vocal performance.
