The final Triumph album before the band cashed in their bowl. A good one too. That mutual guitar solo (Rik and Steve Morse) in 'Headed For Nowhere' absolutely kicks my ass. 'Never Say Never' should have been on the 'Classics' CD. Too bad this band (Rik in particular) is stubbornly refusing to reunite.

From: tony Date: January 29, 2003 at 4:13
one word, (in english) 'classic' one of the best albums done by triumph. a band i would like to see make a comeback album. in some of the songs you could swear it was steve perry and journey... this is a good thing.if you like triumph,and can get this album.....get it, it's money well spent.

From: Gar Date: March 21, 2003 at 15:22
'All Over Again' features Gil Moore's best vocal performance. Great ballad, they should have released it as a single. Overall, this is one of the band's best albums. The problem with TRIUMPH is that Rik Emmett wanted the band to go in a softer, more commercial direction while Moore and Levine wanted to play hard rock. Their albums were mostly a compromise that didn't always work out. TRIUMPH could always be counted on for having great songs, but a lot of their albums were a letdown. Fortunately,

cont... SURVEILLANCE keeps the filler to a minimum and provides mostly first rate material. Check it out.

I don't give a 10 to many albums, but this one gets the full quota. Their best release (although the other 80's albums 'Allied Forces, 'Never Surrender' 'Sport Of Kings, and 'Thunder Seven' all come highly recommended).I can honestly say i love all the tracks on this one , but the highlights would have to be 'Prologue', 'Never Say Never'and the awesome pairing of 'The Waking Dream/ On And On'. SUPERB STUFF nuff said

From: Scandinavia Date: June 7, 2003 at 13:53
This is awesome! This is what 80s metal is all about...I'm thinking of the tracks 'Never say Never' and 'Headed for Nowhere'...For me it doesn't get any better! Perfect production and the guitars...WOW! Excellent album!

From: Edward Date: September 22, 2003 at 9:30
'NEVER SAY NEVER'! Never say that you never like this band, or you'll see...

From: Edward Date: October 3, 2003 at 11:09
Why did this band broke up after this came out? This was a great album. Ahora, en español: Por qué este grupo se rompió después de este disco? Este disco fue genial.

From: Ordinary Man Date: February 28, 2004 at 9:46
The last album of the mighty Rock and Roll Machine. As per usual, quality songs and musicianship. Ripping guitar solo on Headed For Nowhere!(Rik Emmett and Steve Morse)This album is definately a winner! Former members were recently interviewed separately regarding a reunion. Mike and Gil sounded receptive, but Rik was reluctant. But he ended the interview by saying 'Never say never'.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 16:25
Never been too big of a fan of their earlier work. They always had some good songs mixed in with fairly weak ones. This album changes that as they go for a harder sound than they had on their last album. The fantastic dueling guitar song 'Headed For Nowhere' is the highlight of a strong album. 8/10

From: Geoff Date: August 30, 2004 at 2:20
This was the first Triumph CD I ever heard and to this day I still really like it. 'Never say never' and 'Headed for nowhere' are great melodic rockers. Overall it is a good melodic rock release, but could maybe have been a little more consistent.

From: Wachen Date: February 11, 2005 at 16:15
Fantastic record! 'Never Say Never', 'Headed For Nowhere' and Let the light (shine on me) is true AOR at it's best! If you like good canadian hard rock, check out this groups prevoius efforts..especially 'Thunder seven' and 'The sport of kings'!

From: Animal Date: March 6, 2005 at 8:18
'Never Say Never' was the first Triumph song I ever heard and it was great! Rik has a great voice and his guitar work is phenomenal!

From: Remastered Reason Date: February 15, 2006 at 23:01
How this album never re-energized their career will eternally be a mystery. It has every component a high class AOR/melodic rock album could ever boast of. Everything here is in it's perfect place. Yes, it is that amazing.

From: Heavy.AOR Date: July 10, 2006 at 7:00
BRILLIANT 10/10. This CD masterprice like a 1st Avenue-Tears...

From: SangreAzulForever Date: February 19, 2007 at 18:06
This is a unique great release of pure melodic rock! From the prologue which announces the forthcoming overwhelming content of the album until the end, one could appreciate the quality that those canadians made in 1987. I recommend it to any proud fan of this sort of music: call it melodic rock, hard rock, AOR or whatever... one can not go unnoticed with this issue!! 10/10.

From: Figge Date: July 30, 2007 at 15:09
Probably Triumph's best and most consistent release. A top album in the genre of melodic hard rock. Great performances all over and the song material is top notch all the way....which is quite rare, to be honest. Never Say Never, Headed For Nowhere, Carry On The Flame and On And On are all fantastic. Strongly recommended!

From: shoemaker Date: August 4, 2007 at 4:09
This is a must have!!!

From: Rycheage Date: September 9, 2007 at 11:48
Fantastic production highlight some of the best crafted songs in Triumph's time. My favorite is the way they lead into 'Carry On The Flame' with 'All The Kings Horses'. 'Never say Never', 'Headed For Nowhere' and one of the truest AOR masterpieces around, 'Let The Light Shine on Me' are great too. Truly underrated band who should reform. This is a must own.

From: shoemaker Date: March 8, 2009 at 11:14
Hey overkillrules check your ratings, some are ridiculous!

From: MetalianStallion Date: March 9, 2009 at 1:47
Shoemaker(Maker of shoes),take a look in the mirror at your own criminal low ratings before you cast a stone at overkillrules. Exhibit A: Alien - S/T -50,April Wine - Nature of the Beast - 40,Charade - S/T - 60, Def Leppard - High N Dry -75,Diving for Pearls S/T - 69, Frontline - Heroes 69,Against the law 60?(what a joke), Hurricane - Hurricane - Slave to the Thrill - 45,Jaded Heart - Journey will never end - 70,TNT - My Religion - 60? Unruly Child S/T 65,ect. I don't have time to list your overrated releases except to say very few 100 ratings are warranted. Have you actually listened to these releases above? I saw your all over the map # rating system on Marcello/Vestry. Some AOR purist tend to give heavy rock low ratings and vice versa for metal heads,but your all over the rickter scale, pin the rating on the donkey.Here's the gold standard for # rating. 90-100 excellent,80-90 good,70-80 average,60 -70 below average. Is "This is a must have" a review? Take the chit chat to the blog.

From: shoemaker Date: March 9, 2009 at 9:39
Dry your tears metalnag! Sorry, but for me below average is below 50% (50 Points, ok)50-60 average, 60-70 not bad, 70-80 good, 80-90 very good and 90-100 excellent. 100 means brilliant!!! I gave 100 for ALIEN "st", and 50 for the poor SANDBERG version.

From: hair metal again Date: September 3, 2009 at 4:27
1987 what a year that was!and how triumph could be an exception.this one is nearly perfect from every aspect.it has so much music in it,so much feeling,so much skill that it leaves you helpless.great production by thom trumbo,excellent songs like the opening "never say never",the anthem"headed for nowhere" and the masterpiece "all over again".words aren t enough just a big band in its best

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: October 3, 2009 at 0:32
Great masterpiece, Never say never ,On and on,Running in the night are melodic hard rock at it´s best,definitly a must.have,10/10.

From: DonDefo Date: November 14, 2010 at 16:00
"Running in the night" is the brother of Signal's "Go" ;D

From: 123charpenay Date: March 21, 2014 at 11:23
awesome record.ok the three little instrumental (track 1 .4 and 9) are not essential,but the real songs ,wow!!!only killer songs.this album is plenty of irresistible choruses.it s a top class hard fm record.a classic of the eighties.musically it s very strong are very smart.no bonus tracks on the japan import.no problem buy buy buy.

From: 123charpenay Date: November 25, 2015 at 11:32
i can add that this time the production is better than the horrible work on "the sport of kings" (it s not difficult).
