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.

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.

Although this album is named for the masterpiece instrumental that ends it, I think of it as the 3rd album of Yngwie's Trilogy of Master Albums that started with Rising Force, was followed by Marching Out and finally this one.

There are several things that changed in his life after this, among them the pressure to reach a larger worldwide audience that resulted in a more commercial sound on the next 2 studio albums (Odyssey and Eclipse) and the knowledge that he was for a time one of the most admired and copied guitarists in the world, which was by then full of imitators, which did nothing to shrink his considerable ego. Yngwie was also hurt in a major car accident after making this but before Odyssey, although that sure as hell didn't slow him down for long, he came out playing faster than ever! But on the first 3 albums, there is no question his licks and compositions were fresher and seemed to have limitless potential. They became much more repetitive after he made Trilogy.

I even love the over-the-top cover art, he must have thought of himself as nothing short of heroic (never been known for modesty) and undoubtedly came up with that idea himself! Very bold lol.......

If you have any Yngwie albums, you should absolutely have the first 3.

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 ›
