Triumph first 3 albums/releases were excellent guitar driven hard rock. The songs all moved along nicely with hooks a plenty. This release received probably the most airplay that had gotten up until now. Stand out tunes like Allied Forces and Magic Power were huge hits north of the Boarder. Triumph had always had a hard time cracking the U.S. market but this release certainly brought them into the we’ve made it realm.
All the songs are very good with maybe the exception of Hot Time In This City Tonight. It’s not that it’s a bad song, it just doesn’t seem to fit the rest of the album. Overall though, this is indeed a very strong release by this band and was probably the last really solid effort. They seemed to slowly fade away that somewhat.
