Track Review: Asia “Finger on the Trigger” Omega [2010]

80’s progressive supergroup Asia administers “Finger on the Trigger,” a spanking new ambrosial treat from their upcoming album Omega.

The single and future album opener features commanding lead vocals from bassist John Wetton and the smoldering guitars of Steve Howe. “Finger on the Trigger” has a drive that contains a contentious edge from the opening note due to the heavy beat employed by drummer Carl Palmer.

Since this track is a rocker, Geoff Downes’ keyboards take a back seat for much of the song which is a responsible and, of course, a veteran move.  Omega will be the follow-up to the reunited band’s 2008 effort Phoenix which placed the band back on the Billboard 200 for the first time since 1985.

Asia is John Wetton (Bass/Lead Vocals), Geoff Downes (Keyboards/Backing Vocals), Steve Howe (Guitar/Backing Vocals), & Carl Palmer (Drums).
