Asia AURA: better than Andrew's 62%

Although he's like a condom (guaranteed to be effective 99 times out of 100), Andrew's review of the new Asia "Aura" is that 1%... the rare instance where a few more listens and a little more open-mindedness could have resulted in a higher score. I felt similar to Andrew when I first heard "Aura"... it didn't rock, it was too soft, it was ASIA-lite... these were MY initial criticisms too. Then, after a few more spins, this CD started to take hold. The hooks don't dig in right away... they sink in gradually and win you over slowly. (I think Aura's production is definitely better than the 75%... I would argue this even if I wasn't a fan.)

62% is low to the point of cruel. I would give it a 90%. The way this album is growing on me, that number could be even higher by the end of the week!
