SECOND ALBUM SUCCESS!
on 3 February 2014
If the first album from UK rockers The Treatment, 'This Might Hurt', was a record of huge potential, showing just what can be achieved when young hearts and minds are inspired by classic sounds and shapes, then follow-up 'Running With The Dogs' shows that potential being realised in style! You only have to listen to this album once to realise that the elements that made the first outing so enjoyable have been amplified here - pushed to higher levels all round. It's like getting a new, upgraded model of a well-loved car: the wheels are fatter, the engine bigger and the exhaust delivers the kind of sound that makes revving at the lights an experience of both triumph and pleasure. Do yourself a favour, and check out tracks like 'I Bleed Rock + Roll', 'Emergency' & 'Don't Look Down' if you think that hulking great riffs and memorable choruses are the essential ingredients of a classic album. And there's a couple of gentler moments too, just to show the many strings these young chaps have to their collective bow. Not one of your five-a-day, but it does come with nuts, spice and plenty of tasty treats!
