This is the last worthwhile Triumph album, unfortunately Already succumbing to record company pressure, this Eddie Kramer's produced album has all the clues of being "doctored" according to pressure. Anyway, Triumph being Triumph, they managed to write averagely good songs here not great songs, mind you. One person found this helpful.
This album sounds awesome, technically speaking, Album). The sound is so well-balanced, and it shows flawless production throughout. Time is the concept of this one and is my favorite of theirs that never really got that popular. Not sure why but any Triumph fan will want this. Triumph at it's best, not a weak song on here, rocker after rocker, Emmitt is a Guitar God, Thunder Seven is better than Allied Forces and that's saying something.

Another great rocker of an album from Canadian rock trio Triumph.

A thundering mix of moody majestic rock from Pour moi leur meilleur album. Load more international reviews.
Had this on cassette when i was 12 years old and i still play it religiously in my 40's on cd of course. Wish this thing would get a decent vinyl reissue. Album) Seven is all charm!! This cd version is remastered but just a reissue of the first batch of Triumph remasters back whenever.
No difference. Still freakin loud but who cares it's Thunder Seven!!! Les voix de Rick Emmet et Gil Moore sont fabuleuses. Great tunes. Anno di uscita musica intrigante cover superlativa emozioni assicurate prosit. Awesome C D I went to this concert in in Ottawa. Put it loud enough and it sounds just like the concert. Time Goes By 6. Midsummer's Daydream 7. Time Canon 8. Killing Time 9. Stranger In A Strange Land Little Boy Blues Total Time: Side 1 offers up 3 songs that veer uncomfortably between wimpy AOR and watered- down lite-metal.
The other song on the side, "Cool Down", is a 3rd rate Led Zeppelin-ish rocker, having no more reason to exist than Fastway and Kingdom Come two other bands who borrowed liberally from L. There's no real ambition to write original tunes, as many of these ideas sound very familiar, Album), even if FM radio rock isn't your thing.
The only difference is that these songs never wore out their welcome on radio. The second side Cool Down - Triumph (2) - Thunder Seven (CD get any better.
Not here. The song is actually the best on the album, with an ambitious arrangement and excellent guitar solo, but it's a dim light in a mire of terrible songs. Two shorts segues follow: a classical guitar exercise, and the a capella "Time Canon", which might've been impressive if we hadn't heard this done a million times better by Gentle Giant and Queen in "The Prophet Song".
And that's where the prog relation begins and ends, as the final three tracks take us back to the genericness of the first side. There's so much talent here, but I'm sorry, I just don't "get" Triumph and I probably never will. I've come into contact with their music several times in the last 25 years and I have to sympathize with Rush that this Canadian trio used to get dubbed as a "poor man's Rush" from some critics The album cover's pretty cool though.
Rating: 4. Yeah team — go, fight, win! The random high-hat cymbals just seem gratuitous, and the bass has no synchronization with the rest of the song at all. Nice little guitar solo in the middle though — props to Emmett for that.
Both Cool Down - Triumph (2) - Thunder Seven (CD them! As it is, I know that many fans of the band believe this to be their best studio work. I agree. One star. Thunder Seven is, as its title implies, Triumph's seventh studio album. It is a very uneven album with some good moments and many that can be described as mundane and generic. Thunder Seven is also one of Triumph's most eclectic albums. Spellbound has a rather commercial sound with a catchy chorus clearly geared towards radio play.
Rock Out, Roll On could perhaps have been a better song than it is with a better chorus and particularly with better lyrics. The lyrics are deadly uninteresting and standard on almost the whole album. Cool Down is a bluesy rocker that sounds like a total Led Zeppelin rip off. The vocals even sound very much like Robert Plant. Like in Led Zeppelin's music there is also a slight Folk influence manifested here in an acoustic break.
All these straightforward Hard Rock songs are becoming quite tiresome at this point and anyone who would have given up on Thunder Seven after its first four songs might be forgiven.
But it gets better! Still even this song will probably not impress the average Prog Rock fan despite its strong melody and its Ritchie Blackmore-like, Neo-Classical solo! Still, it is easily the album's best song.
You cannot accuse Triumph of being original as they often sound like other bands. But they do have a tendency to surprise you when you least expect it! Jazz Latin New Age.
