the first supergroup of the 80's, Asia's debut is a true classic of 80's progressive rock. Here, members of Yes, King Crimson, & Emerson Lake And Palmer, ushered in a unique blend of prog rock w/80's pop rock. All the classic hits were right here: Heat Of The Moment, Only Time Will tell, Soul Survivor....and these are the three opening tracks. but the CD doesn't go downhill from here. in fact halfway through we have what is one of most amazing Asia tracks ever, "Wildest Dreams", an ode, or possibly a prophecy of war. the tone and mood of this song reflected the cold war times of the 80's and are still relevant today.
