Asia - 1982 Asia
It wouldn't be a superfluous statement to suggest 'Asia' is the most successful AOR album of all time, having sold over ten million copies and logging nine weeks at the number one position in the heady summer of 1982.

Asia - 1983 Alpha
You don't have to go too far to find an Asia fan on this website. The band released three tremendous studio albums between 1982 and 1985, this one 'Alpha' being the second.

Asia - 1985 Astra
It still puzzles me why this album did not embed itself into the hearts and minds of melodic rock fans back in 1985. And also the apparent failure of this album to do well in the charts, following on from their boom albums 'Asia' and 'Alpha' a few years earlier. 'Astra' is technically and sonically brilliant.

Asia - 1992 Aqua
1992's 'Aqua' would have to be Asia's most underrated work. An album which just seemed to slip by, considering it was a mini-comeback of sorts. A lush affair, it was also the introduction of John Payne to the band.

Asia - 1994 Aria
'Aria' is, next to 1985's 'Astra', their most hardest rocking album of all their discography.

Asia - 2008 Phoenix
Mostly, the songs here will appeal greatly to AORsters, and for me I'll take what's on offer, knowing that we've got an album from the original band, even if it's nowhere near the bombast of the Geffen years.

Asia - 2010 Omega
Many of us have been fans of the band since day one, and 'Omega' captures a sense of style from their past, plus where they sit now in the present.

Asia - 2012 XXX
GDAZE has managed to keep pace with all the recent Asia albums. Their appearance on Frontiers Records has ensured that their legacy continues unabated. The XXX for this album title refers to their 30 year anniversary, where the original band members are back where they started from.

Asia - 2014 Gravitas
Overall, it's an OK listen, but not a completely convincing exercise for mine. The songs drift between prog, symphonic and AOR, so that should keep Asia's fanbase happy in the short term. However, new boy Sam Coulson must feel under-utilised on this CD, but grateful for the experience nonetheless.

Asia - 2014 High Voltage: Live
I doubt that general listeners will flock to this, though Asia collectors and hard-core fans will pounce on it with gusto.
