4 stars Wow! This is a very different album indeed. But it's wonderful. I can see the band trying to experiment with different sounds on Omega. It really is a delight to listen to. The signature sound is mixed amidst a number of different elements. I can hear fragments of the Beatles, ELO, The Beach Boys, and Pink Floyd. There Was A Time is the most unique song that this band has ever done. The Celtic quality and Floyd overtones make it a real treat! Dare I say that Omega is "a Progression"? Phoenix was much more of the Traditional Asia sound with a more mature atmosphere. Omega is a very fresh approach for these 4 masters. It really is a blessing hearing this type of sonic mastery. Is there anything that this band cannot do musically? The playing is very tight and well thought out. John sounds better than ever. Steve soars on every track. Geoff weaves his cloak of sound. Carl plays with an immediacy like he is 30 years younger. I certainly hope that the quote by T.S. Eliot is not taken in its literal sense. There is no need for these 4 men to stop anytime soon. Asia is indeed a force to be reckoned with much as they were back in 1982. And that my good an undeniable fact! Don't miss Omega, and see this band live! You will really appreciate them when you see them play!
