New Asia remains awful.

Yup. I bought three Asia albums that I hate without knowing beforehand that I was going to hate them. I hate when that happens. I try limit to my totally blind purchases to cut-outs and cheap used stuff. I guess when I bought those first two Asia discs at the big extravaganza show at the fairgrounds at $1.99 a pop, I should have just bought one of them. I had read so many positive reviews of them, and I knew that Howe was playing on at least one of them. How bad could they be? Well, I underestimated. When I heard that "John Payne was vastly improved" on Arena and that it was "return to their past glories" and that it was "their best material ever", it seemed good enough to look for in the used bin. It wasn't. I guess a willingness to try new stuff makes me a real sucker for punishment. Here I've been deluding myself all these years thinking that it made me open-minded.

My opinion remains that Payne is a terrible, weak singer like Bret Michaels and that newer Asia lacks hooks and is lifeless. Your opinion is different. You may notice that I didn't imply that you are stupid, impugn your credibility, or tell you that your opinion made me laugh just because your opinion was different. It is possible to disagree in a civilized way.

The funeral for my credibility is at 3:00 PM EDT today. Please stop laughing by then.

Toodles, koogles.

Joe
