2 stars Another one of those mixed emotion albums... damn some of the songs on this album are really awesome, especially the Wetton/Downes ones, but in the end the good songs are buried in a ton of cheesiness and average pop tunes.

Another album, another awesome opener. Here the beautiful guitar instrumental "Mondrago" is followed by a very emotional title track "Rock Of Faith" - no rocker to open the album, but gentle melody and lyrics. "I've Come To Take You Home" is one of those songs that make you wonder why John Wetton and Geoff Downes stopped composing together after the first Asia split - it's simply marvelous. "Nothing's Gonna Stand In Our Way" is a nice rock song and "Altro Mondo" is a great instrumental, something that would definitely fit for a closing track. In fact, I wish the album did end with "Altro Mondo" - it would have made a fine four star rating album - because the last four songs are simply cheesy/annoying fillers.

Rating: 68/100
