Limited CD/DVD edition includes bonus DVD that features videos and behind the scenes footage. 2012 album from the Rock supergroup, the third studio album since the original quartet reunited in 2006. Consisting of John Wetton, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and Geoff Downes, Asia were one of the commercial success stories of 1982. Their debut album was the best-selling album of the year and remained on top of the Billboard chart for nine weeks. Now, 30 years later, the band release an album that has been called their best full-length album since that debut. The album's original artwork is by famed artist Roger Dean, who was also responsible for the first album's cover.

What I liked about this album one can picture the band members playing the material live a little more Steve Howe licks which is great so good news for anyone wanting to catch a live show. The other thing I found this album really grows on you where "Omega" was better out of the gate.
In conclusion I would say that this album is the best since the first Icon album (which is still my favorite album since Astra)
I purchased the special limited edition that comes with a DVD as well as a CD, The DVD has interviews, the making of XXX as well as two music videos. It was nice watching the DVD, but, once seen, I doubt I would view it again anytime soon.
As for the CD, the music is great, not as powerful as their first 3 albums, but the energy is there and Wetton's voice has not lost much over the years.
There are a few tunes that would have been better (IMO) by the addition of more Steve Howe (guitar) and less Geoff Downes (keyboards), but the lyrics are good, and the choruses will stick in your head (in a good way) after one or two listens. I especially liked "Bury Me in Willow" and "Tomorrow the World".

Good Cd but similar to their other discs. Did not feel it had the great vocals to boost the songsPublished on Jan. 26 2013 by dale
