I confess I've been so focused on the 4 Albums (Phoenix, Omega, XXX, Gravitas), I didn't take the time to buy and listen to the ICON set. I have listened to a greatest hits of John's solo stuff and enjoy many of those tunes. But this first ICON album is tremendous. Such brilliant songs! Can't wait to get the other two. John and Geoff are one the 3 best songwriting duos I've ever heard. The music that John had put out since '04 is the very BEST of anybody out there! And of course, the first 3 Asia CD's are world class. The first is one of the 10 best albums of ALL time in my opinion. Between the 7 original Asia Studio albums, Then and Now, Resonance, a greatest hits John album and ICON I, I now have 11 CD's of John's brilliant, inspiring music. And, there's MORE coming. Thanks John. You are a freaking brilliant, complete musician.

Since you love the first one so much, wait until you hear Rubicon and iCon 3. They are freakin awesome!

You should also look into the live CD, it's excellent and features some live songs from ASIA as well. And don't forget about the DVD from a few years back...recorded live in a church. John dips into his Crimson past with a great version of "Starless", plus "Raven" from Icon 3 is just outstanding.

Then you'll be amazed by Rubicon, to me the best iCon effort to date.
