Paolo, I think it's still easily my favorite Triumph tune to this day. It's got a lot of heart.

From: Edward Date: September 22, 2003 at 9:11
Yes, indeed. "Lay It On The Line" is perhaps the best song ever done by this great band! TRIUMPH ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Rockhead Date: April 30, 2004 at 10:00
Great Cd featuring Hold On, Just A Game and the awesome Lay It On The Line. 3 of my all time favourites.

From: RockinAmerica Date: July 28, 2004 at 12:34
This was the first Triumph album I heard...a true CLASSIC! Love it from beginning to end. I'm pretty sure everyone out there loves "Lay It On The Line."..myself included. "Hold On", "Just A Game", "American Girls"..absolutely lover that song. I always enjoyed "Movin' On" although that isn't much of a hit, I still enjoy hearing it. If you love Triumph and are looking to hear the good stuff from Triumph, well you'd probably have to get every album in order to do so.

If looking for a canadian hard rock band, forget about Rush.Triumph is the one, and this album is the one of best albuns that these trio made along these 15 years carrer.

From: Nick C Date: December 24, 2004 at 7:37
I remember when I bought this on import all excited but I felt a little let down at the time. I thought it was okay but it didn't get as many plays as the first couple of albums! Although I'm still not over keen on Young Enough to Cry and Suitcase Blues ...I reckon that it is still a pretty fantastic album! And all the other songs used to have me reaching for the old air guitar on a regular basis.

From: Jose. Espaņa. Date: February 23, 2005 at 2:56
This album is one of the best hard rock ones in the last seventies. Beautiful melodies, killer guitar (courtesy of Mr. Emmett), a huge dose of beauty and amazing vocals are the main ingredients to make a masterpiece like this. Definitevely, one of Triumph's best albums (together with "Allied Forces", "Never surrender" and "The sport of kings").

From: Remastered Reason Date: February 14, 2006 at 23:00
This album boasts the beginnings of the hit making machine that would eventually propel Triumph into the big time. "Lay It On The Line" & "Hold On" are the unmistakeable classics. Yet, "Movin' On" is an opening testimony to the bands creative melodic sense with eyes wide opened, knowing the direction in which they would take.

From: rene Date: February 16, 2006 at 17:53
This is realy a very very good album that any TRIUMPH fan need to have in their collection. sound more 80s then 70s even if it was released in the 70s. Strange but true. This is a buy or die release.

From: underworld king Date: January 28, 2010 at 21:54
the title track along with Lay It On The Line are two of my all time favorite Triumph songs. Every song on this one rocks with a passion not heard in today's music. Too bad they don't make em' like this any more.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 17, 2011 at 23:07
Wonderful album!!! starts with a great tune "Movin' On" and it's followed by one of the band's most emblematic tracks of their career "Lay It On The Line","American Girls" is a goodie rocking song,"Fantasy Serenade" shows how skilled Mr Emmett is in both acoustic & electric guitar & "Hold On" that is another piece of good Triumph made tracks...recommended album...90/100

From: hair metal again Date: January 19, 2012 at 5:12
