4 stars Asia's 30 anniversary hence the 3 XXX's although I think they may also be blowing kisses perhaps? (ho ho) So was anyone expecting a full blown prog album? Of course not! They set out to make song based 'non prog' from the start 30 years ago and very little has changed.

In the best Asia tradition this is tightly played and beautifully produced .No soloing no frills ,Wetton's vocal takes centre stage and the other three form a protective circle music wise. In a way this could be seen as a John Wetton solo album with the best line up of session players you will get. The material is strong with no weak moments at all in my estimation.The bonus tracks are well worth getting especially I Know How You Feel which has to be one of their best ever. Solid 4 star AOR album
