Review by Tarcisio Moura
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This was the first album I ever had from this now legendary swedish guitarrist. I remember when I bought the LP in 1987 and I was surprised of how good he was on guitar. The cover was quite impressive too. However, it soon became clear to me that Malmsteen was definitly one of those musicians where showing off their skills is far more important than good, consistent songwriting (or anything else, for the matter). He definitly overplays here, spiting far more notes from his Fender Stratocaster than the songs ask for. While he is backed by excellent musicians like the Jens Johansson (who would gain much fame as a member of Stratovarius in the 90´s) and his brother Anders, plus a fine singer (Mark Boals), little room is given to those since his ego was already upfront all the time.

Not that Trilogy is bad, far from it. In fact, if you are a guitar fanatic, you´ll probably enjoy Malmsteen obvious great technique and skill, specially on the instrumental title track, where he really shines. His classical background is evident, as well as a great influence of Deep Purple´s Ritchie Blackmore. He also proved that he had a promising knack to write fine melodies and hooks. But again it would be nice if he had paid as much atention in developing thpse songs as a whole and give the audience something more than just average arena rock stuff to back up his solos. Certainly he had good enough musicians to develop bolder arrangements too. Like Blackmore always did.

Still, I like this album. It is good, it could be better, but good anyway. Definitly not essential. 3 stars.

4 stars Fury, fire and magic!

As the title implies, Trilogy is Yngwie Malmsteen's third album. In many ways it is the synthesis of the previous two. While the three first tracks here are similar to the more commercial songs from the previous album (most notably perhaps I'll See The Light Tonight and Don't Let It End), instrumentals like Crying and Trilogy Suite, Op. 5 are closer to the brilliant instrumental material from the first album. Trilogy is overall a stronger effort than Marching Out, but not as excellent as Rising Force. This puts Trilogy firmly among Malmsteen's very top albums.

Anyone who thinks that Malmsteen cannot be subtle should listen to the beautiful semi-acoustic Crying. Following that lovely instrumental piece comes four strong shorter up-tempo songs in Fury, Fire, Magic Mirror and Dark Ages and the album culminates in the brilliant Trilogy Suite, Op 5 which is the piece that most resembles the brilliant (and very progressive) debut album both in style and quality; this is Neo-Classical Metal at its best with light speed guitar playing in full Classical fashion with Metal drums and excellent keyboards from the great Jens Johansson. The acoustic middle section is lovely. It is very easy to see where Symphony X gets their main inspiration from!

One thing to note is that Mark Boals here replaced Jeff Scott Soto on lead vocals. Soto did a good job on the first two albums, but Boals is equally good. Sadly, Boals would not stay on board for the next album and Malmsteen would constantly find new people to sing on his albums - some of them considerably ill fit, in my opinion.

Trilogy completed something of a hat trick and it is a very good album in its own right. Highly recommended!

3 stars Third album named Trilogy from this famous guitarist, issued in 1986 is a good towards great hard/heavy rock album, quite typical for that period in this scene but as usual with his quite outstanding guitar skills. Some great moments here like Queen is in love , Magic mirror or the ending track the instrumental Trilogy Suite Op: 5. This is not his best works for sure, I like more Odyssey for instance or Eclipse , but this is quite pleasent most of the time. The speedy guitar parts or the inventive solos and arpegios made by the master make not to be an usual hard rock release from mid to late '80s. Still 3.5 stars for me.
