Since the original line-up of Asia reunited in they have released three studio albums and no less than three live albums featuring this line-up.
This one was still good but it featured a considerably less interesting set list, especially with Fantasia already out there. Another interesting track at least for Asia fans was Midnight Sun which appeared as a bonus track on the CD. But apart from Wheels - Foo Fighters - Greatest Hits, Spirit Of The Night offered no surprises.
Yet another studio album was released in in Omega, a disappointing album after the rather good but no more than merely good Phoenix. This brings us to Resonance.
This is yet another double live CD from the band since the reunion, and that would not have been a problem if they had created a set list with enough surprises and interesting tracks. Instead we have here once again the same old songs from Asia and Alpha plus several songs from Phoenix and primarily from Omega. There is so much they could have done to make this set interesting, but they are content to The Valley Of Rocks - Asia - Resonance (The Omega Tour 2010) the same old songs and some Pumpin - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story ones in the same straightforward style.
At least Steve Howe is allowed to give us a couple of acoustic instrumentals, but even these have been heard before. I strongly recommend to get Fantasia - Live In Tokyo, and if you have that one then you don't need either Spirit Of The Night or Resonance unless you are a big fan of the band.
