Young Enough To Cry 4. American Girls 5. Just A Game 6. Fantasy Serenade 7. Hold On 8. Suitcase Blues Total Time: And the game is exactly what most of these tracks are all about. There is only one weaker track, the throw-away acoustic Suitcase Blues, but even then, it has some qualities. The majority of the tracks are your standard Triumph tracks their formula was now well established and of little use to adult progheads but cater many ideas to revolted teens , but clearly Triumphs many qualities can be more visible in their mid-tempo tracks such as Lay It On The Line , Young Enough To Cry and the title track.
Emmett's voice mixed with Moore's can make an exciting combination and both have almost similar vocal timbre, that one must really pay attention to find out which is singing what lines. In those mid-tempos, we can hear fully the good but pedestrian bass play of Levine, his light Kbs layers mixing in so well with Moore's heavy skin-pounding drums.
Again as is now the tradition, a short track allowing Emmett's impressive prowesses to be showcased is a highlight: Fantasy Serenade. Clearly the opening track sets the mood of this album a bit like Genesis did with the opening track of ATTWT, Down And Out they tell their fans that they made a choice to stick with shorter tracks and less constructed songs.
This will be further documented in the following two albums. Rating: 3. The music is composed in Southern Rock style; somewhat.. The title track "Just a Game" is a good slow rock outfit with nice guitar fills and attractive singing style with blues influenced style.
It's a very accessible track for many ears. It's not a prog album but it's a good rock album to have. Almost all tracks are good. This is the record that did two things, one for the band and one for me personally. And yes — unfortunately I did see them live in the seventies.
But I digress. The best of the best? Wasted opportunities. At least the boys showed some patriotic spirit by only surrounding themselves with fellow Canucks.
Well, I have my fix of these guys for another year or so. Apparently I need to go scrape fungus out of the rain gutters before bedtime, so its time to switch out Triumph for some appropriate accompaniment for that task. Some Ratt maybe. Anyway this is a good album with a lot to appreciate like the blues Young Enough to Cry, very strong blues song, "American Girls" is another nice offering with clear vocal quality and rhythm section of guitar riffs.
The music is composed in Southern Rock style. The front cover of the album revealed a futuristic world where every symbol depicts a song featured on the album. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

And yes, Triumph were already bona fide stars in their homeland, with gold and platinum certifications awarded to both of their domestically released LPs and a prestigious headline performance at the Canada Jam Festival in August But they were still relative nobodies across the border, where Triumph's long-term prospects looked sketchy, except for a few areas where there were pockets of radio support.
In other words, the time had come for Triumph to put up or shut up — especially in light of the recent, noteworthy success enjoyed by a certain fellow Canuck trio.
