Alpha is the second album by rock band Asia released in 1983. This was Asia's final studio album featuring the original lineup until 2008's Phoenix. Alpha has now sold nearly three million records. Alpha focused almost entirely on pop and pop-rock sounds, and is almost devoid of progressive rock elements. Although Alpha achieved multi-platinum status, it did not meet music industry expectations after band's enormously successful debut album. The lead single, "Don't Cry", peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Alpha was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. on October 11, 1983. It is the last album to feature all four original members until Phoenix (2008). It was recorded at Le Studio, Morin Heights, Canada in the spring of 1983. Alpha is dominated by the songwriting tandem of John Wetton and Geoff Downes.
