“Greatest Hits Remixed” by Triumph

Artist: Triumph
Title: “Greatest Hits Remixed”
Label: TML Entertainment
Release Date: 5/18/2010
Genre: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
Rating: 3.25/5

Join me on quest back in time to when the term “Arena Rock” ruled the roost and actually held a lot more potency than it seems to do today. It was a time when bands like Foreigner, Styx and of course our artist of discussion Triumph, were clear leaders in the field of battle upon this realm. I’m scrolling backward a couple of decades here because there was just something intense about an arena Rock show, and the overall “big” feeling that one got during it. It was a feeling that seemed to last you throughout the entire week after you saw it but I guess you would have had to experience this to best understand where I am coming from. The music geography has changed dramatically since this time I speak of and while bands like the aforementioned Styx and Foreigner are still touring, they hardly sell out arenas on their own and are forced to play mid-sized venues in pairs or in threes with other legendary acts. Triumph was one of the greats in my musical upbringing and I loved quite a few of their songs but one day they just ceased to be and there was no farewell tour or official goodbye to be enjoyed by their fans. It was just “over”. The special nature of their material made this release something interesting to take a look at based on the tunes that it presented and what was done with them. Ladies and Gentlemen allow me to present to you “Triumph’s Greatest Hits Remixed”.
