Never in a Million Years

The original Asia lineup supplied several tracks that were spun endlessly by MTV during the early '80s, as the band scored a mega-hit with their chart-topping 1982 self-titled debut. But the group was unable to retain its success, no doubt due to constant lineup fluctuation and inner-band bickering. By the early 21st century however, all was well

Overview

The original Asia lineup supplied several tracks that were spun endlessly by MTV during the early '80s, as the band scored a mega-hit with their chart-topping 1982 self-titled debut. But the group was unable to retain its success, no doubt due to constant lineup fluctuation and inner-band bickering. By the early 21st century however, all was well in the Asia camp once more, as the original lineup had reunited. Around the same time, Asia singer/bassist John Wetton and keyboardist Geoffrey Downes launched their own project, which went by the imaginative title of John Wetton/Geoffrey Downes. Releasing a studio album on their own (2005's Icon), the duo also issued a live set in 2006, Live Icon: Never in a Million Years. Expectedly, the set mixes both Asia favorites ("Only Time Will Tell," "Heat of the Moment," "Don't Cry") with newer Wetton/Downes compositions ("Let Me Go," "Meet Me at Midnight") which are played in a professional, workmanlike manner. With Asia themselves playing gigs again around this time, though, a live Wetton/Downes album (which includes Asia tracks) is definitely a bit redundant.
