4 stars After all these years, guys from Asia are still doing the same thing. The same sounds, melodies, song pattern structures. One can't help but think that it's either about money making (Asia is very profitable band), or about being tired of having big guitar/singing/drum beating/ keyboard playing skills and using Asia as other name for "relaxing from hardcore and complex stuff we were making otherwise".

These songs are mostly nice. Cute, pleasant. But not interesting from complex point of view, from perspective of someone seeking for challenges and new horizons in music. However, for 2010, this album sounds very old.

4(-), do you like Pop-Rock ? Well, go for this album. It isn't bad, it's just empty of new ideas.

But it has one big advantage, production. It sounds extremely great, clean (and clear) sound and even it's on the very threshold of 3 and 4, I'm prone to give more. If only because it's the best Asia album I've ever heard.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
