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".

Sadly, many fans of the Asia debut of '82 are still unaware of the reformation of 2006 and the subsequent release of 3 new studio albums and several live captures. Hopefully the relatively strong hype of the anniversary release will change this. The poignant lyrics delivered by ageless tenor, John Wetton are more powerful than ever. The musicianship of all four with incomparable pedigrees make this a must-have for any rock or prog fan. This effort is more a collection of individual songs like the debut than the quasi-themed Phoenix and Omega since the resumption of the real Asia. For me, it does not eclipse the first album, but has a an insidious way of staying in your head and heart beyond the listening time. The balance in the sound and the way each takes up the focus of the song at varying times keeps each listen a fresh experience and something new is heard with every repeat. Overall, a great effort for any band, but especially from 60-something guys who are still hungry to impress. I recommend the deluxe edition which includes lengthy interviews and a an ok low-budget video for Face on the Bridge. I also recommend PHoenix and Omega for those who are now just catching up. Enjoy!

This is a very nice package with a CD plus an enclosed DVD of 2 music Videos plus the making of the CD itself. This is still the original Asia band with Steve Howe from YES and Carl Palmer from ELP. Simply saying these names states the pedigree of the Band however Asia have been around for a long time now with a long list of hits to their name. This should be enough however for me at least I am always feeling a little tentative when it comes to buying an Asia Disc, sometimes my fears are totally unfounded but other times the fear is warranted and the disc fails to live up to the bands hype. Steve Howe left for some time as did Carl Palmer ( I think ) anyway with such inner strife going on the music is bound to suffer but luckily XXX is not one of these lesser grade discs it is worth the money I spent on it. I can recommend this Asia disc and with a certainty know that the package is worth buying...Spigomars
