2 stars Asia's first album obtained a great commercial success, and the record company wanted a follow up very quickly. So the band came back in studio just one year after without having time to composed strong material. If the the first album was the result of a commom effort by Wetton, Howe and Downes, it's clear than Steve Howe isn't really involved in Alpha . There is no imagination in these tracks, no enthousiasm to play them, no emotions. Alpha just give us "professionnal" and really boring music.

P.S. : I gave 4 stars to their debut album. So it's not a judgement about Asia's music in general but just about this CD.

H.NOT | 2/5 |
