Customer Reviews

The album is one of my top 25 favorite albums of all time.
Peter Alvin
You had the rock anthems in "Fight the Good Fight" & "Ordinary Man" (one of my all-time favorites songs).
Archie Mercer
To this day, the band has a special place in my life, as they showed me how powerful good music can be.

THE BAND: Ric Emmett (guitars, vocals), Gil Moore (drums & percussion), Michael Levine (bass).

THE DISC: (1981) 9 tracks clocking in at just under 39 minutes. Originally included with the disc is/was a 2-page foldout with next to no information (an illustration of a Flying-V guitar, and the statement that all songs written and produced by Triumph). The remastered version (1995) contains additional pictures and song lyrics. Label - MCA Records.

COMMENTS: Canada's 2nd best rock trio (Rush being the 1st) hit the top of their career with "Allied Forces"... truly a rocking masterpiece. Ric Emmett sings all but two of the songs here, but it's nice to see Moore's songs up front in the album. Moore starts off with the rocking opener "Fool Your Love". The title track, probably the heaviest song on the disc, is Moore's as well. When I first got the vinyl album in the early 80's, the title track was the one I kept going back to... that, and 6 minute "Fight The Good Fight" (#18 on Billboard's pop charts) - arguably the band's trademark swan song. "Fight The Good Fight" may be inspirational, but the melody of Emmett's acoustic guitar and the shredding electric guitar solos are what makes it such a strong song - structurely in the same vein as Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" with a soft slow start; the rest of the band joining in making the song heavier as it moves along; great guitar solo(s); lyrically strong; climactic ending. The big hit here is/was "Magic Power" (#8 on Billboard's pop charts)... perhaps the song the band is best known for. If forced to choose my least favorite track here, it'd be "Hot Time (In This City Tonight)"... not a bad song, but this album is so full of strong tracks that this 50's style rocker is simply pale in comparison.

Allied Forces was my first exposure to Triumph and, in regards to rock and roll, my life was changed forever. Prior to hearing this disc, I was a casual rock fan listening primarily to a handful of Kiss and AC/DC cassettes, but that was the extent of my interest in music. Then I purchased Allied Forces based on the airplay "Magic Power" was getting on rock radio. (Can you remember that era?) I was completely blown away by the band's musicianship and the melodic quality of every song on the album. After seeing the band put on an amazing live concert in Binghamton's Broome County Arena, I was hooked on all things rock and roll, especially Triumph. To this day, the band has a special place in my life, as they showed me how powerful good music can be. Now that I have acquired the re-mastered version of Allied Forces, the good memories of a by gone era of great rock n' roll have come pouring back.

The songs on Allied Forces are all strong, if not incredibly diverse. Ranging from metal (the title track) to pop ("Magic Power") to folk rock ("Ordinary Man") to classical ("Petite Etude"), no two songs sound the same, yet all are of superb quality. The best part of the re-mastered versions is the renewed volume and clarity compared to the originals. By playing the discs side by side, the original version of Allied Forces sounds like it was recorded under water. Now, turning up the volume will net you noticeable results and you can actually hear little nuances in the music, especially on the acoustic segments and the "Air Raid" introduction of the title track.

This Canadian trio really knew how to make some noise and some great music. "Allied Forces" is arguably their best release and does not get as much air-play as it should. Three classic tunes "Fight The Good Fight,""Magic Power," and "Ordinary Man," make this album a must have for any rock fan. Add the title track, "Hot Time (In the City Tonight)," and "Fool For Your Love," and your listening to a hidden masterpiece. Living in the shadow of fellow Canadians Rush, may have hurt this band here in the states, but "Allied Forces" is definitely a great album.

Triumph might seem a bit "light" for those who expect heavier rock guitar tunes a la Dokken and Gary Moore ("Victims of the Future"), or the power, feel and grit of bands like AC/DC. Triumph has a generally upbeat and optimistic approach to lyrics and songwriting, which is a nice change from the gloomy rock (and hair) excesses of the early 1980s. The focus here is on solid songwriting, great musicianship, and songs which will stick in your head and move your body.
"Allied Forces" leads off with "Fight The Good Fight", which is nothing short of brilliant... an airy acoustic/keyboard intro, tight verses building up to a classic heavy rock chorus, and great soloing. The title track, grooving with guitar, leads up to "Magic Power", one of the best songs of the '80s. "Fool For Your Love" and the straight-ahead rock 'n' roll of "Hot Time (In This City Tonight)" are perfect lead-ins to the classic rock ballad "Ordinary Man". Rounded out with the very catchy "Say Goodbye", "Allied Forces" is a great album by a great band in their prime.
Guitarists will find inspiration in Emmett's exceptional playing (also check out his solo albums), which glides from one style to another with the ease of mastery. And the band's solid and tight rhythm will also impress. Any musician will be envious, and those who don't play will wish they did. While you may have a bit of a problem with the differences between the two vocalists... some call Emmett's voice too light and high... ultimately you'll totally dig this album, finding yourself playing air instruments along with the band and thinking, "too bad there aren't more albums out there as good as this one".
