I just discovered Asia, and liked what I heard (the debut album). This was nice too.

This actually sounds quite a bit like the last album that John did with Asia (Silent Nation).  The keys are a little more prominent than I usually care for, but both the tracks that I've heard so far have me very interested.

Here is the other track they've released.

There are two main eras of the band.  The John Wetton era includes the debut through about 1991, then they reunited in 2008 and put out four more studio albums prior to Wetton's death.  Between 1992 and 2004 they released 6 or 7 studio albums (depending on how you count them) with John Payne on bass and vocals.  Payne is the lead singer in the videos above.
