Asia  - Asia album FLAC

Asia is the self-titled debut studio album by English rock band Asia, released in 1982. According to both Billboard and Cashbox, it was the album in the United States for the year 1982. It contains their biggest hit "Heat of the Moment", which reached in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Asia’s debut album exploded onto the music scene in April 1982, featuring Billboard top 10 classics amongst six radio hits. It became the best-selling album in the World in 1982. Featuring Geoff Downes on keyboards, Steve Howe on guitar, Carl Palmer on drums and John Wetton on lead vocal and bass, Asia was the logical successor to their collective bands of the 70s – Yes, ELP, King Crimson, UK and The Buggles.

The album spawned a massive number four single in "Heat of the Moment," a follow-up Top 20 hit in the sweeping "Only Time Will Tell," and a handful of other tracks that received heavy radio play despite going against the grain of the new wave styling of the day. Produced by Mike Stone, Asia's strengths were the powerful vocals of John Wetton, the nimble, classically tinged guitar work of Steve Howe, Geoffrey Downes' majestic keyboard playing, and anchoring the band, Carl Palmer's propulsive drumming.

Asia, the debut album of the British Progressive Rock group, Asia, was released in March of 1982. The album was greeted with fantastic commercial success, and rose to the top of the Billboard album chart, and stayed there for 9 weeks. The album, selling an estimated 10 million copies worldwide, was certified 4X Platinum in the United States by the RIAA on February 10th, 1995.
