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." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

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.
Favorite songs: Heat of the Moment, Soul Survivor, Only Time Will Tell, Wildest Dreams

ASIA-heat of the moment-
More Asia featuring John Payne on Vocals Please!
Great song! Classic Group!!
Any band with Steve Howe and Carl Palmer must be recognized as a top band, period. Asia is a great band, love them.
Now if only they had KE on keyboards and GL on bass/vocals. . .

heat of the moment. Good song. Good band. What happened to them?
And I though this said bio
As usual, another critic with a crappy review. ASIA is an INCREDIBLE band, and their music stands the test of time akin to the works of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and yes, YES. Thank You @hollisarts for setting punkguy straight.
awsome band!!
