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

Every time I hear Heat Of The Moment I can't help but to think about supernatural . . . a n d creepy enough, it's Tuesday

Saw them on their first tour in '82 Long Beach, Ca. It was awesome, best concert ever!!!!!!!

I love the acoustic version of Heat of the Moment, and it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find on iTunes. But I did---on a Japanese concert album. Worth the aggravation.
Saw this band in 1982--had fourth row floor seats in Houston's Summit. Geoff Downes gave me a rose. To a 17 year old girl, it was a life changing moment!!
I love this band. Always have, always will. Total time warp for me, no matter where I am, hearing them takes me back to being 17.

Why do biographers have to give there opinions on music and artists? The comment self important was not needed. Please just give us the facts and leave your flawed opinions to yourself.

I just saw Asia a few months ago, had not seen them since their first tour. Wow they sounded amazing, Carl's drumming was incredible, John sounded fantastic, and Jeff still can play that 80's synth like the best of them. Missed Steve Howe, his guitar playing was the missing link in an otherwise flawless sound.

Love the song

Much as Asia could sound indulgent and overproduced , PLEASE don't say they are like JOURNEY...

John Wetton has one of the great voices in rock history. Check out UK, Manzanera's K-scope, etc.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

rocknrollpha r m a c i s t obviously must have been thinking about Neil Pert and his drum solos, he killed it every time, no one will ever come close to greatness like he is.

Why did they change this song!?! How very disappointin g :(

Agree wholehearted l y w/roby_balla : 70's prog rockers get better with age. Saw Asia at Saratoga PAC summer after debut album was released. Carl Palmer's rotating drug stage (the first of these, I recall) during his solo freaked the sh-- out of the audience, as did his powerful solo. Four musicians at the top of the game, & neither has lost much w/passage of time. Truly a SUPERgroup.

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break this chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.
