Notes

The 2013 Asia compilation Heat of the Moment: The Essential Collection brings together most of the '80s prog-pop band's biggest hits and best album tracks. Primarily, the album focuses on the recordings from the original lineup of singer/bassist John Wetton, guitarist Steve Howe, keyboardist Geoffrey Downes, and drummer Carl Palmer. This means we get cuts off the band's hugely successful 1982 self-titled debut and their superb sophomore effort, 1983's Alpha. We also get such classics as "Heat of the Moment," "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes," "Sole Survivor," and others. Also included are cuts off the band's third studio album, 1985's Astra, which was recorded after Howe left the band, replaced by Krokus guitarist Mandy Meyer. Although somewhat dismissed during its initial release, Astra remains a highly underrated Asia record, and thankfully cuts like "Countdown to Zero," "After the War," and "Voice of America" are featured here. Interestingly, also included is the standout 1990 recording "Days Like These," which featured Toto guitarist Steve Lukather. Not included, however, are any of the songs Asia recorded after reuniting the original lineup in 2006. This means there are no tracks from 2008's Phoenix, 2010's Omega, or 2012's XXX. Ultimately though, for most casual listeners who simply want a single-disc overview of Asia's most notable recordings, Heat of the Moment: The Essential Collection should suffice. That alone certainly makes this compilation a worthy addition to the band's catalog.

Heat of the Moment is the first single released by English progressive rock supergroup Asia from their 1982 eponymous debut album. It reached 4 in both the Canadian Singles chart and on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was written by singer and bass guitarist John Wetton and keyboardist Geoff Downes. The single climbed to the top position on the U. Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, achieving six non-consecutive weeks at 1 in the spring and summer of 1982. It was named by Lee Zimmerman of Paste as. However, they also could be surprisingly poppy, and that is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album. After churning out a couple of new songs for a greatest-hits collection, the band hit the road, including . A collection of great tracks given new life in the car. Asia were one of the underrated bands and some of my old vinyl listened to at home is now easily listened to on the move. In my opinion nothing can replace the richness of vinyl but this saved time and effort transferring the songs I loved to digital format. Sole Survivor Lyrics. Heat Of The Moment Lyrics.
