Background
Anytime anyone mentions some of the best melodic rock bands out of Sweden, Dalton should be close to the top of the list. Having only released the two albums ('Injectio' being their second), the quality of the material is stunning to say the least. having both their debut 'The Race Is O' and this one 'Injectio' in your collection is a must to-do, if you have't already. I do't know too much about these guys, though I'm sure someone like Swedish rock historian Janne Stark will know. Signed to EMI Sweden (Svenska), Dalton appeared in 1987 and released a heavy but commercial melodic rock album. Music wise they could be compared to fellow Swedes Norden Light, (at the heavier end of the spectrum) mixed with the lighter style of Treat and 220 Volt. The rough edge vocals of Bo Lindmark and the heavy organ work of Ola Lindstrom give this a heavier than usual flavour, more so than 'The Race Is O', though personally, I prefer this one to the other.


The Songs
There are some wonderful hummable tracks on this one. The choruses are so memorable. Who can forget the ramble of 'Love Injectio', the big chants happening on 'Like An Angel', or the booming anthemic approach of 'Love Hurts'. The pulsing bass lines of 'Dressed To Kill' moves this track very much into the heart of Treat territory. Love the chorus by the way! 'Why Do't You Love Me' is another stormer with a big chorus while the best track for me is the rather killer 'Love Lie', emphasising the class of this band. Not too far behind is the chest beating bravado of 'Wild Tonight' dominated by Lindstrom's organ/keyboard combination and a chorus that's as catchy as it is anthem based.


In Summary
Awesome stuff, and a band very much in the heart of this site. Dalton reappeared as the band R.A.W and released two albums between 1995 and 1997. I have't had an opportunity to hear them, but if they are as good as the Dalton stuff, then I need to add them to my shopping list.
