All Asias albums are called A something A except this colection and the earlier 'Then and now' set. What's here to attract the fan ? Well there's a couple of B sides previously unavailable on cd; 'Ride Easy' flip of 'Only time will tell' and 'Lying to yourself' flip of 'The smile has left your eyes'. Both were superb tracks and should have made it on the respective albums 'Asia' and 'Alpha'. Otherwise there's the predictable set of tracks but the crime for me is the omission of 'Rock and roll dream', 'The last to know' and 'Countdown to zero'. Admittedly most fans will have these on the original albums but a best of set should include the best of and these IMHO are just that. Otherwise a great complilation.
Now for a similar set of the Payne years...

I recently bought this compilation cd as I had the original first two albums on record and the third on cassette tape!
It's been many years since I've really listened to Asia and having heard them on a classic radio station recently, I thought I'd refresh my memory.
I've been playing the CD in my car and it brings memories of the early eighties flooding back....I'm 20 again and driving my Ford Capri with Asia in the cassette player...Great music and great times!
I may well now get the new Phoenix album too!

Asia's Heat of the moment ,best of.. cd combines tracks from the four albums released during the Geoff Downes,John Wetton,Carl Palmer and Steve Howe era.(Four talented artists in their own right) But don't be put off by the the thought of another dreary progressive rock album,the styles on here are as diverse as chalk and cheese. "heat of the moment" with its powerful opening chords wants you to get up and play that air guitar while the ballad "the smile has left your eyes" grips hold of your heart with both hands. There also several more up-tempo tunes like "Don't cry","The heat goes on" and "Days like these" The styles do slightly mirror those of bands like "Yes" and "Journey" but that apart this is definately one to have in your collection

`Heat of the Moment' is a great best of collection from Asia's early years and starts off with the title track to throw you straight back to the eighties. This song still has a great feel to it and never gets tired.

This album has a good mix of tracks on offer and shows the bands style and sound very well. You get those keyboards we love, prog rock vocals and some great lyrics. I grew up on this bands music so it has special place in my heart and is very nostalgic for me but, that individual point aside, this still offers some great songs. Personal favourites have to be `Wildest dreams' with that great keyboard intro before the vocals kick in telling a story of soldiers at war. I also love `The Heat Goes On' which has a fast beat to it and never fails to put a smile on my face.

If you wanted a good intro to this band I would suggest you buy this for their early years and then `Axioms' for a taste of their later years. I enjoy both albums for different reasons, but this has some of the main hits you may have already heard and eases you in perfectly.

Asia's 1982 self titled debut was an instant success with rock music fans and Heat Of The Moment, a powerful number which is their best ever song.
The musicianship is of the highest standards and the production is better than good.
This is a CD I can put on without skipping tracks, it's all listernable and in the same type of arena as Kansas, Boston, Chicago, John Mellencamp, Van Halen, Bon Jovi etc.
