4.0 out of 5 stars THE RETURN OF ASIA, 31 Mar. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gravitas (Audio CD)
I have always liked Asia's sound and their self titled debut album released way back in 1982 is one of my favorite albums of all time, I rate it right up there with any album I have ever heard. Since then in my opinion they have never really come close too equaling that level of musicianship. I always believed Asia's sound is better when their songs are longer and more intricate, their follow up albums like 'Astra' and 'Alpha' etc suffered because the songs were strong but shortened for commercial reasons, the songs on their debt were more intricate and longer, only recently on albums like 'Phoenix' 'Omega' and 'XXX' did this reappear with the return of original guitarist Steve Howe. Now Howe has been replaced with a much younger newer lead guitarist Sam Coulson I feared the worst...but hey what do you know this isn't the case at all because 'GRAVITAS' has ALL the Asia elements that I look for! Well written, well produced songs just the way I like it and just the way it should be. I think opinions will be divided on 'Gravitas' because of the slow tempo of the songs but really if you like Asia's music you should enjoy this. So the bottom line? this is a typical Asia album and one that's well worth buying. If you like anything from ASIA'S recent back catalog you should check this out now. BUY
