A merger of some rock and roll's greatest prog rock artists. Guitarist Steve Howe (Yes), keyboardist Geoff Downes (Yes), drummer Carl Palmer (ELP) and John Wetton (King Crimson, Uriah Heep) forsake the 20 minute epics for the shorter, catchier pop oriented songs. Sounds like a recipe for disaster among prog rock purists, but Asia fared exceptionally well-churning out hit after hit while still keeping their integrity as respectable artists they are.
