ASIA reunites

Afloat on a Roger Dean dream, chased by sea serpents, robots, eagles and floating columns of rock -- Asia is coming back together! Alpha (above) ruled my tape deck in 1993, and as much as I hate nostalgia acts I can't help but feel picqued that Wetton, Downes, Palmer, and Howe are giving it a 25th anniversary shot.

Time to put "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" back on the iPod, at least for a little while. Sorry Kanye and LCD Soundsystem...

If only Steve Perry would come out of retirement.
