iTunes Editors’ Notes

After Triumph split in 1988, their label rush-released an abbreviated “hits” collection with which the band had always been dissatisfied. 2010’s Greatest Hits Remixed gave this beloved Canadian trio the opportunity to do a retrospective their way. Rather than simply remaster the old tracks, they went back and remixed them. In many cases, this resulted in improved versions of songs that had previously been clouded by the effects of '80s production. “Spellbound,” “I Live for the Weekend,” and “When the Lights Go Down” are much more in-your-face here than they'd been on the original mixes. Other songs, like “Rock and Roll Machine” and “Fight the Good Fight” lost some of their mystique in the remixing process. Still, the point of this project wasn't to replace the original recordings but to supplement them. Whether you prefer the originals or the remixes, these updated versions let longtime listeners examine the band’s playing with greater clarity than ever before. The new mixes bring out details that should surprise even diehard fans, making the listening experience brand-new even for lifelong followers.

Talk about a remaster

Many of my friends credit/accuse me of having a good ear when it comes to the whole "remastered" thing. I know I've heard many remix/remaster editions and sure, the music is OK but I'm probably after something I only had on vinyl or extra tracks, or more detailed liner notes but without a doubt this is the clearest case ever when I could tell instantly these tracks had effort put into them and the sound quality was a leap forward.

Now to determine if I get this, or wait to see if they do the whole disc "full-meal deal" for Allied Forces through Surveillance?

2nd best Canadian trio.

The songs sound better than ever. All the songs you have heard on the radio in the past are included in this greatest hits package. The songs are remastered making them sound fresh. I highly recommend this album for your ipod.

Good, but missing some key tunes

Great band, awesome live show back in the day, but as noted this collection is missing some fairly key tunes from the killer Triumph repertoire. Most notably absent are: Nature's Child, Tear The Roof Off, Movin' On, American Girls, Fool For Your Love, Rocky Mountain Way, and as mentioned World of Fantasy. Close to great, but no cigar, IMHO.

Late-'70s/early-'80s prog metallists Triumph endured countless comparisons to Rush throughout their career, and with good reason; they were both quite similar musically and lyrically, comprised of three members each, and hailed from Canada (although it must be said that Rush were the originator, and were much more commercially successful). Formed in Toronto during 1975, the trio consisted of guitarist/singer Rik Emmett, drummer/singer Gil Moore, and bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, and issued its...
