Album Review: Asia, "Omega"

Following on from 2008's celebrated comeback 'reunion' album Phoenix, legendary British Progressive Rock supergroup Asia have again served up another stunning collection of concise mature rock classics. From the rocky, strident opening entrées of Finger On The Trigger, Through My Veins, and Holy War, to the clever wistful John Wetton inspired Beatle-esque balladry of End Of The World and Don't Wanna Lose You Now, Omega is crammed with exquisitely performed, accessible, melodic, anthemic songs luxuriating in a bed of lush orchestration, with lyrics that strike a sympathetic chord in even the most cynical of hearts. Again spawning trademark cover art specifically designed by acclaimed artist Roger Dean Omega marks a new renaissance and joie-de-vivre for the veteran Asia - in the year of the tiger too!
