Hey Peter... I don't think Asia's intention with this album was to rock out or be the same band all over again. Subtlety and nuance doesn't equal weak, in my opinion. Just because something doesn't hit you over the head with a mallet doesn't mean it's weak or uninspired. Take, for example, the crescendo towards the end of "On the Coldest Day in Hell"... very powerful. Or "Ready to Go Home"... some of the hardest hitting lyrics John has ever sang... ironically, for a ballad.

BTW, how many listens is "several times"? I had this CD goin' for about a week until I started really liking it. It's still going strong, whereas the John Wetton "Sinister" (which I purchased around the same time and features big, immediate choruses) has already died off.
