5.0 out of 5 stars Want Real 80's music, than this is it! Treat Rules! February 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best melodic/Aor/hair/metal albums to come out of the 80's.Released in 1986,Treat have a great sound all their own. Want pounding well made bass lines.There here! Great Rhythm guitar and guitar solos. It's here!Vocals that sound like 80's european/scandinavian bands. Treat has it!

This band has one great song after another.

Rev it Up(9/10) sets the standard. A great song with fun chorus.

Waiting Game(10/10) has some great guitar work and is very cool.

Love Stroke(7/10) is alright, but not the best track on the album. Still good though.

Eyes of Fire(10/10) is my favorite song on this album. I just love the bass line and guitar work.

Take my Hand(7/10) is the slow song of this album(very similar to a europe song like Carrie) not bad.

Fallen Angel(8/10) is a great song(the keyboard riff on the intro sound like She don't know me by early Bon Jovi).

Caught in the line of fire(8/10) really rocks this is fine song with well planned guitar work and good vocals(A very catchy chorus).

Strike without a warning(8/10) another cool track.

Ride me High(10/10) this song really shows a great deal of talent this group had.(One of the best chorus I ever heard)the guitar and bass are suberb.

Steal your heart away(7/10) not a bad song, not the best though.

Bonus Track, Rev It up (live).

Overall this album is a must own if you like the 80's and 80's metal get this album. It is a crime if you don't own this masterpiece of music.

Treat is real music when we need it most, right now! I really hope the 80's come back soon we need quality like this around. Forget today's music go out and buy the new treat album.

Other album to buy from Treat are Scratch and Bite, Dreamhunter and Organized Crime,tht's about it. Enjoy! I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flat-out fantastic melodic rock album March 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Europe may be the leader of the Swedish melodic rock pack in the 1980's/early 1990's, but in terms of quality the long-running band Treat gave them a run for their money. Starting in 1983, Treat released a string of excellent melodic rock albums, including 1986's Pleasure Principle.

Pleasure Principle is probably my favorite Treat album, and is one of the best melodic rock albums from the 80's. Comparisons to Europe are inevitable, and you can definitely hear those elements to Treat's sound, but there are also similarities to Bon Jovi, Aldo Nova, Heavy Pettin' and Giuffria. It's a very slick, very polished album full of fantastic guitar hooks, great vocals you can't help but sing along with, and just the right amount of keyboards. It grabs you from the very first song and will have you nodding your head and singing along with each track that follows. It's just a great example of why rock in the 80's was so much fun.

Pleasure Principle is a near-flawless melodic hard rock album that is sure to please fans of this kind of music. The only drawback is that it is more than a little difficult to track down. It's well worth the effort though.

NOTE: The reissued version of Pleasure Principle features digitally remastered sound and a live version of Rev It Up as a bonus track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Increíble January 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
TREAT es una de las mejores bandas de hard rock que he oido en mucho tiempo. Este album está en una onda más hard a.o.r., contiene buenísimas canciones, melodías pegadizas y un gran cantante,Robert Erlund, sin olvidar a un maestro de la guitarra como Anders Wikstrom. El estilo de TREAT se podría a comparar a EUROPE, pero TREAT es mucho más heavy. Simplemente compralo y no te arrepentirás.
