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!

Really liked the first album but I think Running With The Dogs is even better. A real mixture of AC/DC, Lizzy and Aerosmith & hardly a bad track to be heard.

Foot stompingly good.

Once again the lads have bought us a classic sounding album.All the tracks are brilliant but once you have heard I bleed rock and roll the track will stay in your head for ever , You will find yourself humming it without knowing.One thing if you buy this album get the extra bonus addition their cover of the Seeker by the Who is just Brilliant, Matt Jones Vocals are amazing.

Following the excellent debut album 'This Might Hurt' I was eagerly anticipating this second offering by the young rockers. But how do you follow such a brilliant first record? More if the same, or try to change it up a bit? Unfortunately The Treatment don't seem to have done either here, and seem to be merely treading water with this release.

Don't get me wrong, the recording is well put together, and there's plenty if really good playing, it just doesn't have the same 'hooks' that the first album did. There are a few high points and a couple of good tunes but overall I'm a bit disappointed. It just feels a bit too "safe". And some of the lyrics are bordering on cringeworthy.

Decent effort, and it's good that there are still young bands like this coming through. Must do better with the next release though.

OK...got to admit that I only bought this album as The Treatment are currently on tour with Cage The Gods.
Funny how things go around...saw Heaven's Basement at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston last year...support was Cage The Gods...who happened to be supporting this band on their tour...got it?...right i'll move on.
So I went on Amazon and thought ok - better get their 2 full albums.
Right so these guys are young,confident and write some great tunes...and I see by their covers ep who they are influenced by.
The Who,Feelgood Badfinger and Quo..and they tip their hat to Leppard,Tesla,Kiss, Lizzy and AC/DC - no mean feat!
Just treated my best mate Paul(Blood Bruvva)(we are both the same age) to their gig at 02 Islington Academy London on Friday for his birthday (55) and boy these guys certainly didn't disappoint...they play tighter than the Chancellor on budget day...are more confident than both Luis Suarez and Ross Mcormack put together in front of a crowd and worked the Friday night fans into a frenzy.
The twin guitars work a treat...Emergency has a very AC/DC feel with a nod to Tesla and Kiss.
I Bleed Rock and Roll opens their set which let's you have it between the eyes straight away.Drop like a Stone borrows a Feelgood riff and then they turn up the turbo! Get The Party On and title track Running With The Dogs are both immense.
She's Too Much has that Leppardish strut.Cloud Across The Sun could almost be a Beatles song?
Don't Look Down starts off like a Bryan Adams song..there are so many influences here...but I know these guys will find their own sound ready for the 3rd album..as Tim Wannocott says on Bargain Hunt we are in safe hands!

Ok... so so I'm an old fashioned sort of guy. My musical heroes are distinctly old school: Zeppelin, AC/DC, Judas Priest, GNR, Def Leppard, Thin Lizzy, UFO etc. And this album has the feel of those classic bands. It's almost a pick n mix of all the best bits of all those bands distilled into one great tasting recipe.

So if you like the above, you'll like this. Simples.

A killer album for the guys. I discovered them when they opened for Alice Cooper then Motorhead, and their first album was great. This one is still better, actually quasi perfect (only one dud called "world on fire", I think). This band is kind of an AC/DC clone, but they succeed much better than Airbourne (who also have a dog-cover album). This band is pure RnR, total energy, and great songs. I can t get tired of this album. Highly recommended.

This is a stunningly executed product by a young British rock band who are well on their way to global success and acclaim. Really strong songs - Emergency is one of those unforgettable A tracks which will stand the test of time for many years to come. The production quality and album cover creatives help push the cd onto the top shelf. I understand this is the band's second album and I can't wait for the third. I've caught the band live and they deliver a breathlessly tight and visual performance - clearly working their butts off around the clock to achieve success. Totally worth a punt if you're looking for a new young British band to support and follow all the way to the top. Without doubt our best national young rock band around in 2014!

There are not many bands around who not only produce top quality rock 'n roll but back it up live.
The Treatment are young and rock extremely hard.

Put this album on and you won't pause. Its what the UK (and Wordwide) rock scene have been waiting for. Balls out rock.
If your air guitar doesn't get a twanging then I despair.

See them live if possible too.
