4.0 out of 5 stars The last album of Yngwie being true to himself October 30, 2003
By e5150
Format:Audio CD
After this, it was all downhill. His albums began to get a bit "samey", containing songs of dubiously similar, commercial style, with the occasional left-field entry of a real metal epic. This album shows him wanting to try the radio-friendly thing with "You Don't Remember", which is probably his least bubble-gum flavored pop song, but overall it isn't very commercial. And it was the last one to be without one of his ultra-cheesey ballads, which gains MAJOR points for TRILOGY.
Nope, there are definitely NO songs on TRILOGY that your girlfriend would like, which is how it should be. Well, the aforementioned "You Don't Remember" might actually be a chick song, but besides that one it's all dungeons and dragons and shreddery.
Yngwie will never be called a poet, but he at least covers some fairly interesting topics with "Queen in Love" and "Dark Ages". "Liar" sees him seething at someone who backstabbed him, whilst "Crying" is a nice little acoustic solo vehicle.
Undoubtedly the final tune is the piece-de-resistance. "Trilogy Suite" is in my useless opinion his best, most interesting instrumental. It wears many more faces than the throw-away 3 minute shred-fests he tacked onto his subsequent albums, and never loses your attention. The blistering acoustic break towards the end is To DIE FOR.
Yngwie also plays bass on the album and does an amazing job at that, especially in the Trilogy Suite where he routinely does his Bach schtick on the four-string.
Apparently the singer Mark Boals has found some disfavor amongst Yngwie fans, which I can't really relate to. I find him much more interesting than any of the other singers Yngwie's had, especially the "middle-namers": Jeff Scott Soto and Joe Lynn Tuneless, rock star extraordinaire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yngwie at his best. October 31, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the best album Yngwie ever put out.Great songs and his playing is top notch. When I first heard it I could not believe how good he was. His guitar solos show what a musical genius he is!!! This album was released in 1986. I got a copy in 1987. I can listen back to it today. It still sounds fresh and new. Even if you dont like Yngwies attitude or his music you can`t dispute how good a musician he is. BUY THIS CD!!! Check out his guitar solo on FIRE. He burns it up. LISTEN TO A MUSICAL GENIUS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have June 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have to agree with a previous reviewer in that this album is what all other Yngwie releases are compared against. This CD unofficially introduced the world of lightning fast, neoclassical guitar playing even though Rising Force and Marching Out were released earlier. The reason is the songs. "You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget", "Queen In Love", "Fire", and "Magic Mirror" boast the best metal guitar solos in recorded music history. Yngwie has never matched the emotion and creativity of the instrumentals "Crying" and "Trilogy Suite". There is one major clunker in "Fury" and to me, "Liar" is Yngwie's most overrated song. Mark Boals is an average singer - high, shrill voice, very little range of emotions. However, these do not take away from what is one of the defining CD's in metal history. CLASSIC.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yngwie Fires Off His Third Opus: Trilogy! November 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
By 1986, Yngwie had definently deserved the acclaim he was receiving from the guitar community. With 2 classics firmly under his belt and a growing reputation as the premier rock guitarist, Yngwie had truly re-invented the wheel! TRILOGY follows mostly the same pattern as the previous MARCHING OUT with the glaring exception being the overall "pop-ness" of the disc, possibly to widen his audience. And, to his benefit, he did with the now standard "You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget" featuring quite a fine solo and the great vocal stylings of Mr. Mark Boals. Quite befitting Yngwie's ever present Dungeons And Dragons vibe, Boals' thin, high, shrill seems right at home with the minor key madness of such uptempo shredders as "Liar", "Fury", and "Magic Mirror". Anders and Jens Johannson return while Yngwie grabs the bass on this one. We are treated to the emotionally charged instrumental "Crying" as well as the vocal tinged mid-tempo "Queen In Love" and "Fire". The trudging "Dark Ages" is also quite a gem on an album that really saw Yngwie lean with the glam moving times of the mid to late 1980's (possibly the only time Yngwie leaned with the times in his whole career! He truly stands by his invented neo-classical style, but it is obvious that this record was a slight departure from the raw satan-esque vintage metal of his earlier recordings). The true classic on this record, and what really sends it home with a four star rating instead of a 3 or 3 1/2 is the epic majesty of the title track, "Trilogy Suite Opus 5". Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars THE LAST GREAT MALMSTEEN ALBUM PERHAPS ...????? November 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is perhaps, depending on your point of view, the last worthwhile Malmsteen album. After this release, Malmsteen was plagued by personal problems, worst of them his terrible car crash who almost claimed his life. After TRILOGY, Malmsteen hired pop singer Joe Lynn Turner and released the pop ODYSSEY, with totally AOR lyrical themes. Malmsteen went on to concentrate apparently only in his mind-numbing "shredding" technique, when vibe and emotion never more returned to his music. TRILOGY is already more pop oriented than his two previous releases, but still manages to have something special surrounding its songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars I donot care for the vocalist.
I admired his guitar work, Vocals just ruin the harmony. I prefer rhythm guitars more than soloist, but still great music.

Bought this album when it came out back in the fall of '86. Great playing and great tunes. Yngwie went a little more commerical, but not too much. Still sounds good to this day.
