Asia's debut unexpectedly impacted on the album charts in 1982 and refused to budge for months, circulating the airwaves of radio thanks to its lead single "Heat of the Moment", a hit destined for classic status if ever there was one. "Heat of the Moment" aside, the album boasts eight other sweeping arena rock anthems, all of which deserve the same credit as the epic opening track. Despite not falling in line with the eclectic musical landscape of 1982, Asia's adept musicianship, from John Wetton's soaring vocals, the majestic, propulsive rhythms, swirling keyboards, and the indulgent introspection of the songwriting are bolstered by the supergroup aspect of the band, all of whom hail from other established acts such as Yes and King Crimson. Owing to their advantageous knowledge and musical aptitude, the band were able to incorporate elements of progressive and art rock into their music, and on their debut album that would manifest as simplified experimentation and brief instrumental tangents, but for the most part, the progressiveness is far too often coupled with a traditional song structure and an emphasis on dramatic, powerful verses and choruses. As such, the album is no more progressive than "90125" by Yes. Although the album does register on the whole as flashy, upbeat and symphonic, and the overly slick, weedy production would benefit from being warmer and the soundstage far wider if the airy harmonies and instrument separation are to be heard in all their glory, but the welcome flourishes of prog and classic rock as well as the classical-tinged musical proficiency on display more than compensate for these limitations.

"Asia" is the well-crafted product of a group of impressively skilled musicians who championed the sounds of progressive rock with additional sheen and stylings of arena rock for good measure, a calculated move that saw them achieve significant airplay and eventual commercial success in terms of record sales. Ambitious to a fault, thoroughly theatrical and amplified with a sense of grandeur, the songs comprising the album are often accused of suffering from so-called dated '80s production and overwrought lyrics, but in my opinion, these factors should not limit its appeal to more discerning listeners who will forgive such perceived flaws if the music is delivered with enough conviction, style and verve. In order to fully appreciate the album's strengths, I would suggest acquiring the 2010 24kt Gold AFZ disc, which somehow accomplishes the impossible and improves the lacking production and fidelity of the original masters, rendering the overall sound much less thin and sibilant. In attaining a more pleasant aural experience, the music herein is enhanced to such a level that new details and nuances are perceptible, hence my recommendation. It is imperative for any fan to seek out this HDCD for maximum enjoyment of the album in its definitive version.
