Product Description

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.

Considering this is now the sixth album featuring the reunited Wetton/Downes writing team in 7 years since the release of Icon and you would think they would run out of material. But to the contrary XXX delivers a solid effort. Comparing the album to the 1982 debut album is not a fair comparison the music has changed for sure. But if you enjoyed "Omega" the last album this album is right up your alley. "Tomorrow the World" actually sounds like one of the tracks from the 80's then it kicks into "Bury Me In Willow " a great track likely the best since the band reunited. The weakest track I picked "No Religion" but the next 3 tracks "Faithfully","I Know How You Feel","Face On The Bridge" all solid. "Al Gatto Nero" sounds typical of "Omega" good song. "Judas" I picked as the second weakest track. I bought the Deluxe Edition which has "Reno (Silver and Gold)" actually is my second favorite song on the album. "Ghost Of A Chance" is typical Asia fare.
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)

Asia has appears to have aged well over 30 years; I can't believe it has been that long since I carefully sliced open the shrink-wrap on their debut LP and gently placed it on my turntable. A memorable moment indeed!
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".

I have had this album for several weeks now and have not stopped listening to it. This is true Asia with the sound I remember and like. I have always been a fan and even though Omega was - is a good album this one to me brings me back to their first two albums.

Can't wait to see them live again
