The Treatment: Waiting For Good Luck

Hard Rock
4.0/5.0

Once more we revisit with England rockers, The Treatment for their fifth studio album, Waiting For Good Luck. While, in the past, the band has been a revolving door of personnel changes. The new album finds the band in rather stable form. This will be their second album with vocalist Tom Rampton but, alternatively, the first with new bass player Andy Milburn.

The Treatment

Yet some things don't change. Unlike Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, you know exactly what to expect musically from The Treatment. This is high energy hard rock n roll infused with an upbeat boogie rhythm and groove, quick pacing, fine guitar and vocal harmony, memorable choruses, and thrilling guitar solos. References to AC/DC notwithstanding, with this album and the aforementioned characteristics, The Treatment sounds more like a classic melodic hard rock band on the edge of radio-friendly, AOR accessibility. Yet what's required of that conclusion is simply some stand-out, generously ear catching songs, which rise to the top of your mix tape. In this case, my choices would be Eyes On You, Rat Race, and Let's Make Money. Otherwise for some road trip, and road raging, tunes there's the accelerants Vampress and Hold Fire. Alternatively, The Treatment knows how to reach for the blues knob with Lightning In A Bottle and especially Barman with it's subtle piano line and boogie groove. Most things considered, The Treatment's Waiting For Good Luck is another solid and entertaining album of their boogie groove, sometimes blues-infused, classic hard rock. Recommended.
