Area70
5 stars For anyone who grew up as a hard rock fan in Canada in the late 70s and early 80s, Triumph were a definite source of pride. But should they be on the Prog Archives? Not really. There's definitely a prog touch to their work, but this is most minimal keyboard touches - these guys were much more focused on being a melodic power trio.

Their songwriting, production and vocals were always really sharp, but the main reason to try this band out is Rik Emmet's guitar work. Not sure what he's doing these days, but he was a longtime columnist in Guitar Player.

If you check out one song as a taster, make it "Fight the Good Fight" - a rare example of how well a reggae beat can work with hard rock.
