|Fantatic album. I'm a old fan of Asia and would never believed that they release a album better than the astra and alpha cd:s. Fantastic!!! BUY!

|Asia's 'Aura' takes the direction hinted at on 'Arena' (the song) and builds an entire album around it. The result is the most mature, enlightened CD of their career. This CD's hooks sink in gently and don't tear into you at first listen. That makes 'Aura' a gradually more and more enjoyable CD. With 'Aura', Asia re-invents itself for a new decade much as they did with 'Aqua' nearly 9 years ago. Like Dare, Asia may be one of the few bands who are still evolving and exploring new directions.

|FANTASTIC ALBUM..A NEW CLASSIC TO ENJOY..A JEWEL FOR OUR HEARTS!!!!

|This is the most diverse Payne'era album yet. An enjoyable listen from start to finish! Personal faves are 'Free', 'Ready to go Home', Wherever You Are', 'Awake', and 'Hands of Time'. Digi-pack is definately worth the extras!! Also, a vast array of musicians here, Go Guthrie!!

|Very good! It's a shame that a lot of people don't consider the band as being Asia without John Wetton. John Payne's work really shines here.

|Yes, a agree with all of you! :}

|Asia's best work. A future classic. Not a bad track. First class AOR.
||Date: August 8, 2003 at 16:20|
|All things considered, 'Aura' may just be the best AOR album never released in the 80's or 90's. As much pop as rock and - believe it or not - quite danceable in spots, Aura shows that Asia has plenty of inspiration left and I look forward to hearing what they'll do with it.

|The Last Time is a real gem; Steve Howe and Ian Crichton really shine on guitars...

|Aura is the AOR music of the future.The best thing in it that they spreaded their horizons again.Geoffrey Downes keyboard themes and the guitar melodies give various moods for us.It has to be heard,my friends!!!

|Note the ex ACDC Chris Slade participation....

|The art of playing in simple forms and proving your highest class! This CD is the epitome of great melodic music, an ideal soundtrack to watch a warm sunset of May with! I could not believe my ears when i first listen to this CD. I couldn't even believe that Asia is the band! And what a group of musicians... Perfect songwriting, magic in the air, etherial sounds and technical - but simple to the core - performances (these keys are still haunting me!). A perfect work. 10 out of 10 for sure!

|Along with the debut - the perfect Asia album. Love every track on this album, but especially 'Awake', 'Ready To Go Home'(also seen on Mitch Malloy's - Ceiling & Walls album, but a much better version here) & 'Free'. Sensational stuff. One of my most played albums ever, and one of the few that gets the perfect 100 rating.

|The best album from any version of Asia - packed with high quality songs all the way through. The first three songs and 'You're the stranger' are my favourites from a very strong collection.

|I agree with everyone this is a KILLER cd!! The first three songs WOW!! The rest is melodic bliss. In fact I've decided the song "Ready To Go Home" will be played at my funeral. Rock on!
