The Treatment – Power Crazy

This is The Treatment’s fourth album since they started back in 2008 – and with the album comes singer number three. Original singer Matt Jones left the band in 2015 and his replacement Mitchell Emms followed him two years later, after only one album with the band. The new guy on the block’s name is Tom Rampton and it is with him as a frontman the band hopes their big break will come. Speaking of big breaks, despite opening slots for bands such as Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy, Slash, W.A.S.P., Steel Panther and the Kiss/Mötley Crüe combo-tour, it has never shown up. Without sounding like a complete dick, I suspect that what’s missing is the songs that kills. I have given their records my best effort and nothing has ever stuck – and I don’t know one single person that has ever raved about the band either. I don’t think they suck, it’s just that I find them too impersonal and their songs too middle-of-the road. But with new blood in the band, maybe it’s this album that will take the band to the top.
