Triumph

2008 digitally remastered and expanded Legacy Edition of this album from the R&B legends formerly known as The Jackson 5 (their defection to CBS left Jermaine and their old name behind with the Motown empire). Includes three bonus tracks. This 1980 album has the group fleshing out their sound and songwriting abilities even more. The anthemic "Can't You Feel It" has enough hubris and undeniable craft to get this polished work started. But as Triumph plays, what's striking is that the songs don't immediately leap out at you but they all land on their feet. The blissful and funky tracks found on this album are effortless, punchy which maximizes the album. Triumph is a gorgeous effort and remains an absolute necessity for any comprehensive collection. 12 tracks. Sony/BMG.
