Treat - The Road More Or Less Traveled

Label : Frontiers Records | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: Full-length CD

Sjak : Treat belongs already since the eighties to the absolute top of the Swedish A.O.R.-scene and by means of their in 2016 released album ‘Ghost Of Graceland’ they have proven that they are still capable of holding that position in the meanwhile overcrowded scene. This ‘The Road More Of Less Traveled’ is an integral representation of the show that they did in 2016 at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Italy and again it shows that these old-timers still have their claim to fame. Even more so, the musicianship and vocal delivery (Yes, Robert Ernlund is still a top-notch singer!) were so good that at first I couldn’t believe that this was a live recording. The somewhat obligatory talks between the tracks made clear that it was indeed a live show and that’s is a very big compliment to the band as they still prove to be capable of bringing to the stage what they do in the studio. Robert Ernlund is still a magnificent singer, but definitely not a big entertainer and that’s the only (small) point of criticism that I can make on this furthermore brilliant release. He doesn’t really do anything more than the standard interaction between the audience and the band and that could have been a bit better. Musically everything sounds plain awesome and that’s still what it’s all about. Great performance of a fantastic A.O.R.-band!
