3.5 greatSuperreallycool | May 24th 16

Only Asia album that didn't make me suicidal so that's a plus I guess

3.0 goodkheman1317 | June 25th 18

Contain couple of good songs including Don't Cry and The Smile Has Left Your Eyes. And some tracks have eargasmic guitarwork. But still, there is no wow factor in most of the album as many songs are pretty mediocre (not bad) and somewhat cheesy and cringeworthy.

2.5 averageRobbit | December 20th 16

Following the success of their excellent debut, the original lineup (Wetton, Howe, Downes & Palmer) released their second album
ALPHA in 1983. ALPHA has always been something of a disappointment for me. There are way too many ballads and not enough of
the instrumental fireworks that made their debut so compelling. "Don't Go" seemed likable enough as a single at the time, but
seems a bit twee in retrospect, as did the follow-up single "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes". The only song that even comes close
to rekindling the fire is probably "The Heat Goes On". The band seems to have found a formula that they pretty much stick to
for the remainder of the songs, leaving little opportunity for interesting surprises. Almost good, but fairly average overall.

3.5 greatDemolitionizer | December 25th 14

Out of all the Asia records this one has the most of my favorite Asia songs on it. The first
3 tracks of this album are awesome and are among Asia's best work...but the second side of
Alpha doesn't hold up. this gets a 3.5 only because of my biased love for the song "Don't
Cry"
