1979’s “Just a Game” by Triumph is a solid release, highlighted with the standout tracks, “Lay it on the Line”, “Hold On”, and the title track. After listening to this album, one could conclude that the foundation was built for stellar albums to follow. A few years later, they released ALLIED FORCES, which is their best album, in my opinion. Still, this should go down as a classic album by an extremely underrated band. Triumph has been a punching bag from critics, especially when the subject of the Hall of Fame surfaces. Triumph (like Rush) is taking it all in stride, because they put out great music for their fans, and that’s all that matters. I recommend purchasing ALLIED FORCES, NEVER SURRENDER and THUNDER SEVEN in addition to this CD.
