(Connection to previous album: Mike Stone was the producer for 'Frontiers' album. He was the producer for this Asia album.)
Asia's first album was fabulous. Came out at a time when it should have flopped but it didn't. It sold 4 million records in 1982. This record was the 2nd release and sold only 1 million. It was also the last to feature the original lineup. Alpha had only a few moments where it was fun to listen to.
Oh, and Mike Stone is another one of those super-producers. He worked with a ton of bands I liked. I didn't realize his discography was so immense. Check him out.
