Asia - Alpha mp3 album

Labels Geffen Records, CBS/Sony, Jigu Records Corporation.

Alpha is the second studio album by British rock band Asia, released on 26 July 1983 in the United States and on 12 August 1983 in the United Kingdom by Geffen Records. Recorded at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, and Manta Sound in Toronto from February to May 1983, the album was produced, like its multi-platinum predecessor, by Mike Stone. Guitarist Steve Howe left the band in 1984. Thus, Alpha was the last album to feature the band's original line-up until Phoenix which was released in 2008

The album still managed to be a platinum-selling Top Ten hit, as did the leadoff single "Don't Cry," but where Asia managed to make old sounds fresh, Alpha fails miserably. Nothing on Alpha packs the sheer sonic force of the band's debut. Instead, much of the record is lightweight both lyrically and musically, leaning heavier on keyboard-laden ballads like "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes," which managed to scrape into the Top 40, and "My Own Time (I'll Do What I Want).

The second studio album, Alpha, by the progressive rock band, Asia, was released on July 26th, 1983. This was the last album that featured the original lineup of the band, before the guitarist, Steve Howe, left the next year. Although it did not do as well as their hugely successful debut album, Asia, it nonetheless rose to the spot on the Billboard album chart and certified Platinum by the RIAA. It’s leading single, Don’t Cry, was a top ten hit on the Billboard hot 100 the same year.
