Thunder Seven Review:

This was it. This was the album that started it all for me. When I hear the songs they take me back to some good times. Too bad I missed the concert in Guelph that year and I regret it all the time. As I type this I am listening to “Time Goes By.” How fitting. I have my fingers crossed that a reunion tour is a possibility.

Allied Forces Review:

A milestone for rock fans, yet a kind of hidden jewel over here in Germany. High vocals to make you shiver, beautiful sparkling acoustic guitars, slicing sharp electric guitars, stomach-felt bass lines and great, skilful, high-energy drumming – maybe the best combination of skill, melodic beauty, power and sound I managed to hear up to now – and this is stated by a true Rush fan. Anyway, this is all so far away from now, being one of the first rock albums I ever listened to back in wonderful 1981, at the age of 16. Still the music rocks today without any loss of energy or freshness.

Just A Game Review:

This was the first Triumph album I bought. I was about 14 years old at the time and the album had just been released.From the moment I placed the album on the turntable with the great opener “Movin’ On” through to “Suitcase Blues,” the album is a real killer! The two tracks that really stand out on this album in my opinion are the title track “Just A Game” and “Hold On”.

Edge of Excess Review:

This album is a far cry from what has been offered before…and I mean that in a good way. Even though Rik does not appear on this effort, it is more solid and more in the direction of hard rock than has been established by them in the past. From the title track to “Troublemaker” and “Riding High Again” among others, this album is one of the best efforts they have released.

I only hope they will re-issue this one along with the others as it deserves to be part of a great catolauge as well. Hopefully, another effort like this will be in the works sometime in the future.

Classics Review:

This was the very first Triumph album I bought (on cassette) as I knew that I couldn’t lose with the selection of songs on the album. In time, I began to pick up other albums and began to discover what a jewel this group is. When I first heard of the band, I think they were generally described as hard rock or maybe even heavy metal; no label truly does Triumph justice as they can perform almost any kind of song with skill and enthusiasm.

My favorites are “Magic Power”, “Somebody’s Out There”, “Follow Your Heart” and there are many others that I enjoy.
