The key to appreciating Aura...

... is to listen to it for its own merits. Forget about Asia- the 4-man supergroup from the 80s with the prog rock bloodlines, forget about the whole Wetton vs. Payne thing, forget about those nifty Roger Dean paintings on the cover, forget they used to rock a lot harder than they do now. Just sit back, chill out and listen to this as a moody, ethereal statement that isn't afraid to address the big topics of spirituality and immortality.

Have you ever seen the movie "The Thin Red Line"? I watched that expecting a war movie, blood, guts, the whole nine... But it wasn't about that.. it was about mood and ambience and nuance... as much as it was about war. Of course, once you start watching that film in the context of a mood piece, then it's a whole different cinematic experience.

That's sort of what I'm getting at with "Aura". You need to escape all pre-conceived notions and let it take on a life of its own.
