The Jacksons kicked open the door to the '80s with the appropriately titled TRIUMPH. Michael Jackson's gigantic success a year earlier with his platinum-selling OFF THE WALL fueled this album, which heavily features his scorching vocals and hitmaking production sensibilities.
With all songs written and produced by the Jacksons, the album begins with the orchestral bombast of "Can You Feel It," complete with child and adult choirs; it's a big song with a monumental production. Entering a new phase of their career mixing spooky spirituality with unimpeachably funky beats, the Jacksons feature a number of hits, notably the sentimental boogie of "Lovely One," the paranoid lyrics and chugging disco beat of "Walk Right Now," and Michael's downright eerie "This Place Hotel" (aka "Heartbreak Hotel"), which may well be where he met Billie Jean.
Q (8/94, p.126) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Possibly the only truly decent album The Jacksons ever made..."
