4 stars Good prog for beginners

Usually I don't review albums rated many times. But I wonder how many 1-2 stars reviews and ratings this album has. It seems those who tell it's crap are so smart that they listen to KING CRIMSON, avant and RIO since their childhood years, and Robert Wyatt and MAGMA sang them lullubies. But in reality people start from simplier forms of music, be it pop, big beat, hard rock or heavy metal. And only when their tastes improve they come to more complex forms of art. I think ASIA debut album is a good bridge between straight rock and real prog. At least for me, quite a long time ago, ''Asia'' album was such a bridge. Still love these songs. No need to discuss them here - love or hate them - most of us know them well.

4 stars for this memorable, well crafted record, made by great rock musicians.
