Pat FrancisAlbum Review, MusicLeave a Comment

PhoenixIn 2005 the super group known as ASIA reformed it’s original multi-platinum line-up and embarked on a worldwide tour. The fruits of their labor came together in 2008 when the band released “Phoenix” it’s first album of original material in almost 20 years.

Phoenix” has just been reissued via the bands own label “ASIA Music Limited” and distributed through Cherry Red Records.

The new release has been expanded to a 2 disc set that includes both the UK and US releases of the album. Both versions feature different mixing and mastering while the UK version adds 2 bonus acoustic tracks: “I Will Remember You” and “An Extraordinary Life.”

As for the album itself… after 8 years “Phoenix” stills sounds vital and definitely set the ground work for the albums the band would record in 2010, 2012, 2014 and hopefully beyond.

Standout tracks include: “Never Again,” “Alibis,” “Shadow Of A Doubt” and the worldwide smash “An Extraordinary Life.”
