2 stars I think it is fair to say that I am left unimpressed by this band as a whole.

Omega, their album from last year, has not changed my opinion. It has enforced my indifference towards them. Which is a shame because I am a Yes fan. But who is not a Yes fan....... ?

Asia serves up 12 bland AOR tunes which could had been written and recorded in the 1980s. The sound is from that era. I wonder if Omega is one of those lost and found from the vault albums. But the band has ensured us that the songs are current and written during this decade. So no excuse, then.

The quality of the songs is pretty abysmal. The musicians, some of them my all time favorite musicians, does a good job. But the songs....... Scary bad ! The structures, the blandness, the cliches and the obvious borrowing and variations of melody lines from other artists hit songs which tells you everything about the band's desperation and ambitions.

I cannot make myself give this a one star because they are mostly reserved for shoddy recordings and musicianship. But rest assured; this is a truly awful album.

Kaboom from my CD player and my local fox has got a new toy.
