After the down-in-the-mouth "Astra", Asia sounds refreshed and ready to sell another billion records. "Days Like These" is quite a return-to-form but some of the other "now" tracks ("Am I In Love", for example) don't live up to the old standards.

From: Melodiker Date: January 6, 2003 at 14:19
Nette CD für Komplettisten,leider sind nicht alle neuen Songs der absolute Bringer,aber als Asia Fan sollte man diese CD schon haben.

From: Carlomagno Date: July 23, 2003 at 18:05
God bless this excellent and fine musicians "Summer Can´t Last Too Long" with "Days Like These" the best of aor and prog rock 95/100 (alo great videos by the way)

From: kesseldorz Date: January 18, 2004 at 13:36
well, only 3 new songs, they sound a lot more modern...dont really know what the purpose of this record was....7 and 9 are good songs tho, 7/10 for the new songs Greets, Kess

From: Big Papa K Date: June 23, 2004 at 2:24
I have not heard the whole album, but as far as the new songs go, "Days Like These" ranks among Asia's finest moments.

From: jarett r. Date: October 15, 2004 at 21:22
i just got this album. man, i bet a lot of people give ron komie a hard time about his last name...

From: Geoff Date: March 22, 2005 at 5:24
Actually, just checked and I sold the debut and kept this one, as the first 3 songs on this were my faves off the debut and this is a nice CD to have of a band I like, but don't really feel I need to own too much of. Agree that 'Days like this' is a great track and this is a nice collection to have for the partial Asia fan.

Exacto Geoff, bonito CD y buena como colección para fans parciales de Asia, un gran grupo de mucho respeto. Particularmente a mi me agrada la voz de John Wetton aunque no tanto esto del rock sinfónico o progresivo al menos soy un fan a medias De las "nuevas" pues que duda cabe, me quedo con "days like these" y quien mas sino Steve Lukather para deleitarnos con su guitarra y con ese gran solo, de lo mejor de los temas nuevos. Bonito para fans y parciales de Asia.

Alan Partridge once said his favourite Bealtles album was 'Best of the Beatles". I'm an Alan Partridge Asia fan and this does it for me. The songs from the first album are brilliant, Heat of the Moment is so good it even sounded great when sung by Eric Cartman on South Park. "The Smile" from the 2nd album is also amazing. I enjoy this Cd and hardly ever skip songs. One day I will check out the three previous albums.

The only Asia album I own. Don't feel the need to own any others at this time. This one has some of their best so I'll stick with it.
