    Man, I think that is by far the weakest of the "reunion" albums. Not sure if it reflects on Howe being missing, but the songwriting just isn't there, IMO.

    Diff'rent strokes and all that.

    Boy howdy, his voice is so strong on this recording. The orchestra doesn't add much. I've never thought to myself, "Boy, this Asia song really needs some strings here." But this a highly enjoyable concert, the more so given Wetton's health and vitality in it.
    I saw them twice during their post-Payne years, and was blown away both times by Wetton's vocals. So strong and clear.
    Music isn't about chops, or even about talent - it's about sound and the way that sound communicates to people. Mike Keneally

    John & Ken Hensley open with this song on their live 'More than Conqueres' DVD. Great show that I wish would get a BluRay update.
