Asia

When they appeared in the early '80s, Asia seemed to be a holdover from the '70s, when supergroups and self-important progressive rockers reigned supreme. Featuring members of such seminal art rock bands as King Crimson (John Wetton), Emerson, Lake & Palmer (Carl Palmer), and Yes (Steve Howe), as well as Geoff Downes from the Buggles, Asia did feature stretches of indulgent instrumentals on their records. However, they also could be surprisingly poppy, and that is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album, Asia, and its hit single, "Heat of the Moment."

Alpha, their second album, also had a couple of hits ("Don't Cry" and "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes") but its follow-up, Astra, was a flop. The group disbanded in 1985, only to reunite in 1990 without John Wetton; John Payne took his place. After churning out a couple of new songs for a greatest-hits collection, the band hit the road, including two sold-out dates in front of 20,000 fans in Moscow, of all places. Thereafter, they toured sporadically and released Aqua (1992), Aria (1994), Arena (1996), Aura (2001), and Silent Nation (2004). The band's lineup reverted to its original form featuring Wetton, Palmer, Howe, and Downes for Phoenix (2008) and Omega (2010). In 2012, the original Asia lineup returned with the studio album XXX, featuring the single "Face on the Bridge." The following year, Howe announced his amicable departure from the group to pursue other projects, and in 2014, Asia released the album Gravitas, featuring new guitarist Sam Coulson. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I love Asia.
this takes me back to an easier care free time. miss it soooo much
the 70's and 80's rock
I remember when Sam's favorite song played on the radio, and Dean Shouted Heat Of The Moment, Rise and Shine Sammy!!
When I was little kid, my mom used to play Don't Cry for me when I was sad. Heat of the Moment is good too, but I wish those Supernatural fans would shut up about it.
"Sam! Give me the axe!"
"No, Dean! Give it back"
*sees the blood splatter*
Heat of the moment! Heat of the moment! Heat of the moment!

Luv this song!

However if you don't post this comment you will die in 2 days.Now that you've started reading don't stop. Put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary but it actually works.

They're awesome.
Boston, Europe, Asia, and Kansas are all awesome.
Let's face it, geography bands are just awesome!
I Love Asia and I Love Europe too!!!!! 80's music is so Awesome!!!!!
Competing with Europe? I don't think so. Been listening to Asia since the early 80's and never, ever even thought they are competing with Europe.
They may have been competing with Europe, who knows.
My all-time favorite band!
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!

so underrated, awesome power band very good electronics! !
I made my Asia radio because I love the stuff they did post-Astra. All pandora plays is tracks from Asia(album) and its follow up, Alpha. I want Aqua, Arena, Aria, or even Phoenix or omega! Just something NOT from their first two albums.
...it's a shame too! ELP, Yes and KC are some of my favorites, but it feels like they left their balls behind when the started this group...
Never got it then, still don't get it now...NEXT.. . .
Talk about self-importa n t . Whoever wrote this bio is pretty full of themself (is that a word?).
I don't think I've seen a positive (or even neutral) bio yet on this website.
Wow, what a horribly inaccurate biography. Someone got paid to write this?
and yes i have supernatual powerrs...
ready to go home is one of my faves... but its a little too preachy fer all.
ilovebooksan d s m i l e s
must be tuesday
lol, do you have supernatural powers?
Rise and shine, Sammy!!!
Someone is confusing Asia with the Outfield.
chris.dymmel
To be fair, Asia did the prog-to-pop thing before Yes (90125 came out a year after Asia) However, bands like Saga, Styx & Heep were already doing that in the late 70's when it was called pomp rock.
