Triumph: Thunder Seven

Sound — 10
Triumph is one of my all time favorite bands, I've listened to them since I was 5 years old so I think that this album sounds great. it's been my favorite triumph album for a long time. 01.Spellbound: this is an overall great intro to the album, Gil moores vocals and drumming are awesome, and Rik's and Mike's Guitar and bass fit in perfectly. 02.Rock out, Roll On- Fu***n': amazing song, great lyrics and singing. Rik Emmetts vocals are great, this is one of the greatest Triumph songs ever! 03.Cool Down: an ok song, the southern rock style intro doesnt't really fit with the rest of the album. 04.Follow Your Heart: a total Epic Rock Song, a Great Chorus. Rock and roll hearts never die! 05.Time Goes By: great song definetly, at over six minutes long, it's the longest song on the album. 06.Midsummer's Daydream: great instrumental(every Triumph album needs One) 7.Time Cannon- Kind of a waste on the album, but a sort of cool semi intro to Killing Time. 08.Killing Time: great song, Killer Vocals by Gil, and Rik. 09.Stranger In a Strange Land: a Great heavy song with Really Rocker Vocals, and lyrics! 10.Little Boy blues: kind of over doing it with the instrumentals on this album, but still ok.

The lyrics on this album have to do a lot with time (Time Goes By, time Cannon, Killing time), and being sort of an outcast but still believing in yourself(Follow Your Heart, Stranger in a Strange Land). Gil Moores Lyrics are great and Rik Emmetts are slightly Better for most of the songs!

Overall Impression — 10
I think that this is one of Triumphs greatest albums ever, and it deserves more Fame! The Most impressive songs from the album are Rock Out, Roll On, Follow Your heart, Killing time, and Stranger in a Strange Land. Love everything about the album except the fact that there are 2 instrumentals. If this album were stolen I'd Be really Pissed because it was harder than hell to find.

    You will NOT be disappointed. See if you could get this album, then Rock And Roll Machine(International Edition), then Surveillance, then Progressions Of Power

    Triumph is my favourite band of all time but i am really upset that i cant find tabs for the songs i want like when the lights go down, allied forces and so many more if any one knows where i can find any more tabs for this rock trio please let me know.

    Agreed, one of the most underrated bands of all. Allied Forces, Thunder Seven, Sport of Kings and Surveillance were the sweet spots for them IMO. Hell, I even thought Edge of Excess was ok.
