The missing comeback album, bridging the gap between .... uhm .... nearly thirty years ;-)

It may be a few decades late, but this is a welcome change from what passes as pop these days. Good to know there's still some bands we can count on for decent mainstream sound. Really diggin' most tracks on this album.

30 years into their career, Asia release their best rounded album yet. There's a lot of growth power, and it can count on great atmosphere backed by splendid artwork. One of the more unique AOR albums of recent years, sprinkled with light prog-like touches. Even the bonus tracks are good! Unfortunately this is one of those annoying albums where a bonus track has its place inside the standard tracklist. "Reno (Silver and Gold)" was pivotal for my growing appreciation for XXX, because it brought more variety to the platter and felt right at home with the album's flow.
My highlights: "Tomorrow the World", "Al Gatto Nero", "Reno (Silver and Gold)", "Ghost of a Chance"

Classic Asia's still stuck in the 80s, but this is a strong album.
