This review is from: Alpha (Audio CD)
Unlike most die hard Asia fans, I wasn't introduced to the group until I heard the song "Don't Cry". When it was followed by the amazing "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes", I sought out the LP. And WOW! I would dare say that the cover of Alpha is my favorite cover of all time. It wasn't until after I had worn out "Alpha" that I realized that Asia had put out an LP from the year before. (What can I say, I was 12 and there was no internet). Many people overlook Alpha because they measure it up to the first LP, "Asia", but since I experienced it the other way around, let me say, Alpha more than stands on its own as a classic.

I discovered Asia in the same exact way; with Alpha first. I picked up a used LP of it at a thrift store when I was 18 (in the late 90s), and after hearing "Don't Cry" was hooked ever since. When I finally heard the debut album a few months later, it blew me away even more.
