Omega is Asia`s 11th studio album and the second of the original Asia line-up, since their 2008 comeback album Phoenix. However, this is a Limited Edition, since it features three additional tracks, two of them recorded live. It seems to be a mix of mellow and upbeat songs, but still a wonderful Asia album- at least this is what I experienced at first listen with the opening track I Don`t Wanna Lose You-. The beat changes with Finger In The Trigger, a pretty good rock song, with John Wetton providing his best vocals and Steve Howe, his best guitar riffs. Then, the pace goes a little slower with the following track: Through My Veins. However, it sounds like a solid prog rock song. Again, John Wetton provides excellent vocals. Holy War follows up with a similar melody to Through My Veins but going back upbeat and energetic. Ever Yours enters the melodic, mellow territory, however, not a bad song. Incidentally, it shares a similar melody to that of I Don`t Wanna Lose You. Listen Children gets the band back to an upbeat, energetic performance that reminds us of the 1980`s Asia sound. As a whole, the band sounds tight and cohesive, especially Carl Palmer on drums, Steve Howe on guitar and Geoff Downes on keyboards, complemented by John Wetton on bass guitar and lead vocals. End of the World keeps going the same path as Listen Children, although more melodic. Now, Light My Way is incredibly powerful, probably the best song since Heat of the Moment. Emily is slightly poppy, but still good. I`m Still The Same is good follow up to Emily. Next to it is the melodic There Was A Time that reminds us anything that Rick Wakeman has put out: melodic, very proggie-sounding and well-crafted. The song has a medieval-sounding, very typical from Rick Wakeman`s Myths of King Arthur and the Knights of the Rounded Table. I Believe is a pretty good rock song, energetic from beginning to end. Other tracks worth listening: Drop A Stone, which is available on the Japanese imported edition, The Smile Has Left Your Eyes and Video Killed the Radio Star (a Buggles classic from the late 1970`s) both of them recorded live in Tokyo, Japan. Overall, take this CD seriously, if you are an Asia fan or a die-hard proggie.
