Editorial Reviews

The fans demanded it, and the fans finally got it. After 20 years apart, the long-awaited Triumph reunion (of vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore) took place at Sweden Rock Festival, on June 7, 2008. The Live at Sweden Rock Festival set will consist of a DVD and CD showcasing the entire Festival performance.

I am 44, and have been a Triumph fan since the age of 11 I think. I always felt the the band never got the recognition they deserved, always being compared to Rush. I own all the CD's of the band and even a few vinyl versions. When I first read that this was being produced, I was ecstatic. I grew up in Colorado, and maybe I never knew when Triumph would tour through the midwest, but I never saw them in concert. I threw the DVD in the player and watched, and was instantly amazed at how good the band sounded and how great the guys look. I always marvel at how Gil can play drums and sing lead vocals on songs. Rik Emmett is extremely talented and I think he is fortunate that he never stopped playing musically. My only wish for this DVD was that maybe if it were filmed in Canada in front of a larger fan-base of TRIUMPH. They put on a great show, and even after 20 years, they sound really good. I hope they re-unite to perform concerts, even if only in Canada. I will make the trip for that. For people like myself, this is perhaps the only way I can see them in Concert. Buy it.

I've been a big Triumph fan since 1980. I saw them for the first time live in 1982 and was blown away. I was so excited when Triumph reunited to do the Sweden Rock Festival and Rocklahoma Rock Festival. I've been patiently waiting for this DVD. I must say, I was blown away again by Triumph's performance. They sound incredible after all these years. I love The Blinding Light Show and I live for the weekend performances. Now, I just hope Triumph releases a DVD of the Rocklahoma performance.

This is a solid effort from the guys from Toronto. I can't say I was "blown away" by this DVD recording, especially since its picture quality certainly left me wondering why my Triumph US Festival Show DVD filmed nearly 30 years ago looks better. The concert looks as if it was filmed using security cameras (I'm sure it wasn't) since the end result is a very washed out and limited color scheme with muted and lifeless hues. Given today's state-of-the-art video captruing devices, I expected much more, even if not in Hi-Def. Nonetheless, I enjoyed watching the concert DVD for what it was - a long awaited Triumph reunion. Plus the DD 5.1/2.0 audio isn't bad.

Keeping in mind that aside from Rik, these guys have been out of the musical spotlight for some time now, I think they accomplished quite an undertaking getting themselves "performance" ready for this show. Given thier long hiatus and the affect of aging to one's joints and vocal chords etc, they did a stellar job, recreating and performing the classic songs of their career. Triumphant in all respects.

But was it a better or more enjoyable performance than their shows of the past? (which many of us probably have in our DVD collection, already.) Well to be honest, not quite. This is to be expected considering that they were operating as a finely tuned (rock and roll) machine in those days. But my biggest gripe would have to be their choice of venue. Sweden? Really?

In my opinion the crowd seemed rather unwelcoming once you look past the first 10 rows or so. A home country Canadian crowd would have probably served the band much better as the energy and enthusiasm would have helped fuel their fire.

I found this concert to be a bit of a disappointment. We have been Triumph fans for over thirty years, and any chance to see the band together is a great opportunity, but this reunion at the Sweden Rock Festival could’ve used a bit more pep and polish. I know the guys are older – aren’t we all – but *I* know I can’t still do back flips on a balance beam.

The songs chosen to be included are in themselves disappointing. There is so much more great music that could’ve been included but was left out. I’m not sure if there was more and they had to chop it, but either way we diehards would’ve loved to have seen some of our more esoteric favorites. Not even all the hits are here! And I know they’ve tried to own Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way” as “their” cover in the past (I think they were attempting a Stevie-does-Jimi kinda thing?), but this effort falls flat on its face. Really, they’re not doing Mr. Walsh proud here.

The guitar work is great, and yes, Rik can still rock out, but the band’s time has passed. Rik has lost a huge range of vocals, and the guys as a group just didn’t have the old spit ‘n shine. It’s obvious they’d been apart for a significant amount of time. A lackluster crowd didn’t do anything to help the guys’ energy level either, and as Rik mentions in one of the bonus features, choosing to go on in the daylight turned out to be a mistake.

Go see Rik with Dave Dunlop if they ever come around your area. (We’re lucky to get that chance every now and then here.) They’re great. Rik is doing music that is more in synch with his current vocal range, and the guitar work is still just as impressive. I’d recommend skipping “Live at Sweden Rock Festival” unless you’ve just gotta have everything Triumph’s done. This effort is unimpressive. If you don’t already have it, get “Live at the US Festival” instead, where the guys were a finely tuned rock ‘n roll machine at their peak (and before the eighties really got a hold of them).
