AllMusic Review by

A re-pressing of 2002's excellent Anthologia: 20th Anniversary Geffen Years Collection, this isn't just a loosely assembled collection of Asia's finest moments -- it's everything but the kitchen sink and bandmember arguments caught on tape. For diehards who missed its initial pressing, this second time around is redemption. This, quite simply, delivers everything fans could ever want (and in some cases need) from the supergroup that was at the top of the arena rock game during the '80s. However, those who aren't die-hard loyalists would be better served by checking out 2003's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Asia as a viable substitute and a filler-free, less intimidating entry point into the group's catalog.
