Enter 27-year-old Sam Coulson, who replaces Howe for Asia's 2014 effort, Gravitas. A technical wizard on the guitar, Coulson has all the requisite abilities to fill Howe's role as resident flamethrower for Asia. Ironically, the aptly titled Gravitas is one of Asia's more reserved albums and Coulson, who acquits himself nicely throughout, isn't called upon to throw much fire for most of Gravitas' running time. This isn't to say there aren't fireworks to be had.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). An angry anthem at the end of an unfortunate relationship. The intro runs about two minutes in length - almost too long - but the anger, bitterness and resignation are palpable in the lyrics.

Hesitated to buy given Sam Coulson was replacing Howe; however was pleasantly surprised. It's a solid album even though Coulson's guitar playing goes into "Heavy metal" territory at times. No bad song here, a solid wonderful album. The DVD comes is a nice addition but IMHO forgettable.
