Payne is a terrible vocalist and Asia's material has been sub par for years. Paynes addition to the group has not helped matters, and I have not missed the band. Wetton on the other hand has talent to do wonderful things and I thought he was getting close with the reformation of UK an couple years ago, but that fell apart. "Battle Lines" just sounded to much like Asia. A guy with credentials like King Crimson, Uriah Heep, and UK can do better. Has anyone heard the work he did prior to Asia as vocalist for the French Prog group- Atoll?? Amazing stuff.

"Kingdom Of Madness" is one of the best UK AOR/Prog albums of any decade, and again I agree, after "The Eleventh Hour" things got a bit strange for Magnum. The early albums though are gems, and Magnum- IMHO ranks right up there with Kansas and Styx, and should have had equal sucsess.
