Released just a year after this beloved Canadian power trio broke up, Classics is assembled from across a formidable 11-year run of hits. These 11 songs show that Triumph had a little bit of everything going for them. Like their Canadian peers Rush, they could transport listeners with a catchy piece of prog-rock (“Hold On”) or bust out an obnoxious rock 'n' roll strut to match Mötley Crüe (“I Live for the Weekend”). As the '80s wore on, it became increasingly apparent that Triumph’s specialty was the power ballad—the particular brand of amped-up melodrama that came to define a decade. With “A World of Fantasy,” “Lay It on the Line,” and “Tears in the Rain,” the band showed their peers how to be melodramatic without losing their edge. They could write a fabulous pop hook, but as musicians they also reveal parallels to Van Halen (“Magic Power”) and even Led Zeppelin (“Fight the Good Fight”). For all their big hits, the best introduction to Triumph remains “Rock & Roll Machine,” the earliest song included here, from 1977. It proves that they were a killer rock band before they ever became a pop band.
