1 stars This album is crap. As a big prog rock fan like myself, I find it really pathetic that musicians of this class (Steve Howe, John Wetton, Carl Palmer, Geoff Downes from bands like YES, ELP, KING CRIMSON, etc.) would lower themselves to writing pedestrian pop crap for the masses. Maybe some prog elements do show up like on "Time Again", but nothing to really write home about. Since I grew up in the '80s, I heard "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" played on the radio all the time, and I could barely stomach those songs. And the worse thing, is their debut is usually regarded as their best album. ASIA is a prime example of what went wrong with the prog rock scene in the early '80s.
