4 stars I felt it would be interesting to translate Mr. Beltrami's comments for the English-speaking audience. (I'm not used to translating other people's words into English, so please bear with me.)

« From Lionel Beltrami, Asia Minor. Hello, this so-called third album by Asia Minor is indeed a different mix of the first one without any vocals. The author, who can be considered responsible for this, is publisher Mr. Bono. He made this album only as a means to help reselling musical cues from the album to documentaries, TV shows, movies or anything like that; which, in fact, was successful in its own right because some of them actually ended up in TV or movies. Regarding the use of Alan Parsons' name on the cover. Mr. Bono, without consulting the band first, took the initiative (which I won't dare to comment further), and (voluntarily?) mistook for production work on out first album, what was an actual but innocent meeting in Paris, October 1979 between Mr. Parson and us. Of course, when we learned about this at that time, we asked Mr. Bono to do whatever necessary to immediately remove that fallacious mention on the album cover. End of story... »

Shall I add that this is still an excellent album, albeit a little less than the original version? Still, a great item for Asia Minor fans.
