[QUOTE]In Response to Re: One Trick Ponies : I agree with you that music is purely objective, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but, C'mon Berlin was not even in the same zip code musically, and its members not even remotely talented as Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer. You may hate their music, but their talent was formidable. Berlin was a good alternative band though, probably better than most at that time.

Sorry but to me Asia was pretty much the poster child for everything that was wrong with the music seen in the early 80's
They were a pre-packaged quote un quote supergroup, they should have been called the monkey(lol).
Maybe I just dislike them so much because I was about 13 14 when they started and I was more into the Clash, and much edgier rock then.
Berlin to me gets points more for Terri Nunn's voice ( ok she was smoking hot to) But I am not really a big fan of Berlin I just dont think they stink like as bad as say Chicago.
Now Asia I would rank higher among bands named after places, they were better no doubt then CHicago, Eoupre, and ALablama.
But again Naming yourself after a place seems to be the kiss of death unless you are named Boston.
