Title - 'Triumph - Remastered' (Legacy)
Artist - The Jackson 5
After the success of Destiny, The Jacksons return with another stellar album, Triumph. The band took control of their music on Destiny and they show a growth on Triumph as it is a more complex and textured album. "Can You Feel It" has a soaring and heavenly orchestration and sets the tone for the album. "Lovely One" has a funkified riff and was the hit single from the album. "Everybody" is a call to the dance floor. "Time Waits For No One" is a multi-layered, dense track.
"This Place Hotel" is the stand out track on the album. The song was originally titled "Heartbreak Hotel", but changed to avoid confusion with the Elvis Presley song. It is a tale of betrayal and heartbreak set against a haunting melody. The track is supremely produced with intricate layers of sound and an impassioned from Michael.
Triumph did Destiny one better by peaking at number ten to become their first top ten album since 1972's Lookin' Through The Windows.
This new digitally-remastered and expanded Legacy Edition of the album includes three bonus tracks of rare 12-inch mixes: 10. This Place Hotel (AKA Heartbreak Hotel)(Single Version) 4:53; 11. Walk Right Now (John Luongo Mix) 7:36; 12. Walk Right Now (John Luongo Instrumental Mix) 6:59.
