Mangala Vallis - "Voices" (Bandcamp page)
First listening. Not bad. I see myself listening to this again. It's in the Symphonic Prog and Neo-Prog camp. It's an Italian band, so I half suspected them to be singing in Italian, but it's English. For similarities bands like Magic Pie come to mind immediately.

And now I'm listening to Mangala Vallis - "Voices" again. (Bandcamp page)
It's pretty good. Actually, of all the releases I've heard in February so far, this could be one of the best.

Today I also listened to:
Sunrise Auranaut - "The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn" (Bandcamp page)
and
Heavy Moon - "Heavy Moon 16" (Bandcamp page)
But both didn't do anything for me.

Yes, I had to work early, so plenty of time to listen to some music.

Don't know, but this Wikipedia page explains a lot: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_featuring_John_Payne  ;).

It explains a lot, but not all.
The 'real' Asia is also active with Billy Sherwood filling Wetton's shoes. No Howe either, so there's no 'classic lineup' anymore. I think Payne comes closest now.
Seems like a 'Yes without Jon' debate now. Sorry. ;D

np: Blind Ego - Preaching To The Choir

Released today. While I'm waiting for the cd to arrive, I'm listening to it on Spotify. Second spin, more rock than prog I'd say, yet very enjoyable 8).

Also listened to it twice now and I think it's very enjoyable.

Now listening to:
Neal Morse Band - "The Great Adventure"

By the way, what happened to the Morsefest dvd/Blu-ray releases? Morsefest 2018 is still gonna get a release or what? The "Jesus Christ - The Exorcist" musical, isn't it?

And what about Morsefest 2019? With Flying Colors and "The Great Adventure"? The only thing I know is that there's going to be a Live in Brno release, but that's no Morsefest.

Ah well, patience is a virtue I guess...

So they're still using the name of Asia. Also, I think out of anyone John Payne has the rights to use that name. Most Asia albums have him as a singer.
Why are Geoffrey Downes and John not teaming up again? Is it because Geoff's in Yes now? They're not that active either.

Asia featuring John Payne released an album in 2018 under the name 'Dukes Of The Orient'. They don't use the name Asia anymore out of respect for John Wetton. Erik Norlander also plays on this album. I own it and it is great 😎🤘.

Yeah I know, I have that album (and now that you mention it, I just have to play it). But they're also touring as "Asia Featuring John Payne" (with Frank Klepacki on drums haha).

Now listening to:

Why is John Payne not back with Asia? I really like this album.

Could be interesting for me, will check it out. I have been listening to three albums from Kingcrow lately (also an Italian band singing English ;)) and Blind Ego. Preparing for the gig I'll be attending in March.

Blind Ego - Liquid

I listened to a song, I think it was called Burning Alive, and was pleasantly surprised. Sounds like it could do very well on a radio station too. (Reminded me of Kensington.)
I'll make sure to listen to the album once it is released.

Now playing a Playlist of the best Porcupine Tree songs.
Currently Buying New Soul from Recordings.

That's funny, I did exactly the same thing a few days ago. It reminded me of the quality of that band. Not every song is as good as the next, but I think I can say that every song is at least 'pretty nice'.

Now listening to:
Asia - "Silent Nation"
Why is John Payne not back with Asia? I really like this album.
