As far as I understand, this are the biggest Pop albums in the 80's by former 70's prog giants. Which one do you like better?

90125 is just horrific, and it has Owner Of A Lonely Heart... Dead
I hated Asia...period
Invisible Touch is awful, but not as bad as the other two. So I vote for that.

Whenever is it that Asia wasn't pop? I thought they were born pop.

Sorry, fixed. I'm having a really bad day today. In my post on your PF in the 90s poll I originally wrote that I loved "the title track" of Division Bell when I meant Poles Apart. I don't know what's into me today. LOL

I went for Asia:) Invisible Touch makes me cringe, with the exception of the Brazilian and 90125 sounds very dated now(and gimmicky). The production on Asia is brilliant and John Wetton's layered vocals are great. Asia to me is the perfect cross between pop and prog, which is what they were going for:)
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Asia is terrible. I prefer Yes album against Invisible Touch, not a big difference though

Invisible touch better than 90125? Are you joking guys?
I respect everybody's opinion, but 90125 is not Big Generator (in which case Invisible touch is an easy winner)

Asia was absolutely awful!! Unlistenable IMHO.
Invisible Touch is lousy.
90125 is bad, but gets my vote. It Can Happen is passable.

90125 is a fantastic pop record; I never skip over a single song when I listen to it.
The other two, however, are reprehensible garbage.
The saving grace of Invisible Touch is "The Brazilian", but there is NO excuse for Asia.
I mean, the band had a stellar line-up...how could the result be so nauseating?
Are Edgar Froese, Bob Dylan, and Miles Davis going to form a pop-punk band, now?

Bob Dylan already did something like that: Travelling Wilburys with Arlo Guthrie, Tom Petty and George Harrison...

Love them all, but any album with Hearts on it cannot possibly come less than first.

Good point.Clap

But  I remember how much I loved Asia's debut when it came out. It was never off my turntable.......so I've decided my vote goes to that excellent album.
