1 stars Very poor album! Like GENTLE GIANT, they declined because they fell in love!!!!!!!!!!!! If you like "Spartacus" and "Old Loves Die Hard", then do not expect the same here!! No more prog here!

They completely became pop, but a very bad pop! Unbelievable! Well, it is music, no doubt, they all play their instrument correctly, but the compositions are common and less than ordinary! It has no personality! Barry Palmer has definitely a bad voice!! Fortunately, is appearance is rare on this record. The other singer is better. Their worst album by far!

PROG REVIEWER
1 stars I'm new to the progarchives community--few of you know me from a hole in the ground. So before I get called a completely narrow-minded idiot, please know I very much like and defend Genesis' 'Abacab' often. That should be enough evidence that I can accept once- groundbreaking bands streamlining their sound. As long as the material still carries a good degree of depth and quality, I'm in. But 'A La Carte' by Triumvirat is possibly the worst album I've heard by an otherwise great prog-rock outfit. A disaster.

I gave it a chance. I really did! Given that the 5 previous albums are all essential prog albums to one degree or another (especially the massive 'Spartacus'), 'A La Carte' is a severe wrong turn. Sure, they were streamlining, sure, Jurgen didn't want to be trapped in the prog mold any longer...but that doesn't meaning anything if the songs are no good. And none of these songs are good. None. On first listen I kept waiting for the good songs to appear...by the second side I kept waiting for the one good song that just had to be there. I desperately tried to justify my purchase by giving it the chance it deserves--just because it is Triumvirat, or so they say--but I kept coming up empty. I would prefer to give the album a more in-depth analysis, any album deserves a quality review, regardless of the quality of the album itself, but I no longer own it. Life's too short to waste on really bad records. Hail 'Spartacus'!!!

PROG REVIEWER
1 stars FROM ELP TO SUPERTRAMP

Very bizarre change of direction for this once good German trio. From a pure ELP sound they switched to a pop sound a la Supertramp. One of the problems, is that they are only the shadow of a sub-par Supertramp. What you'll find here is rather poor music, overwhelmed with orchestrations (viloins, cellos, trumpets and lots of choirs). Not really my cup of tea.

We'll travel from poor to worse here. The latter being "For You", by no doubt. An insipid and syrupous ballad (on par with the closing number "Good Bye". Truely awful and difficult to imagine how low "Triumvirate" has evolved. In this aspect "I Don't Even Know Your Name" just looses by an inch the highest step of the podium.

The least boring numbers being the ones that will sound the most to the Tramp : "Waterfall" and "Late Again". But don't expect too much. But of course, compared with "A Bavarian..." and the funky-oriented "Original Soundtrack...", they sound like masterpieces.

"Darlin' " is also a good joke. But a bad song with stupid chorus and trumpets.

It is really a poor album and I can only recommend to stay away from this "work". One star of course and nothing prog to be found.

PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Oh, I skipped this album for decades. Somehow I knew I would not like it and now that I finally had a chance to hear it I found out I was right all along... I´m glad I did not hear this CD at the time, it would have been a huge disappointment. It is ok that Pompeii was not Triumvirat´s best, but it was good and certainly a prog record. This one is anything but. Try to imagine Genesis releasing Invisible Touch after A Trick Of The Tail! The difference is the fact that A La Carte is way worse than Invisible Touch.

Not that this album is too bad per se: obviously all the musicians are skilled and the arrangements are well done. But it is pure pop and the songwriting is simply mediocre at best. Sometimes very poor as in the case of tracks like For You (I never believed a band like this would release such a lame song). The better tracks are A Bavarian In New York (good overall arrangement) and Goodbye (even if it sounds like an Elton John rip off). And this was released only an year after Pompeii!!! Unbelieveble!

One of worst and fastest cases of a great band downfall. Unless you´re a fan of third rate pop, avoid at all costs.

3 stars Triumvirat's A La Carte is a quite nice pop-rock effort.

1 stars From ELP to Supertramp and then to some overblown Las Vegas ballads. Or is it the casinos in Dortmund, Monaco or Manchester this band is aiming for with this album ?
