Classic!

It's the album that opened my ears to everything.:)

Prog was all but dead in 1982. This was not supposed to be a prog album. It was tailor-made to fit on AOR playlists,
and to extend the careers of these 4 highly respected, talented musicians for a bit longer.

Asia's debut did everything it's creators wanted it to do... and more! :tongue:

...I wonder if 90125 by Yes would have done as well, had it not been for Asia breaking the ice the the year before...

ASIA?. I remember 'the fuss' made about them back in '82 and 'breaking America' and all that s**t but this 80s band didn't do much for me or YES for that matter BUT dudes I have been re-listening to the first Asia album of late and loving every track on the album plus Geoff Downes is cool dudes.

10/10 baby ;)
