4 stars Top notch second album named Between flesh and divine from this Turkish-France band Asia Minor issued in 1981, and what an album this is for that period, really this kick ass all the way from start to finish. Imagine you listen to Camel in their most inventive period with some turkish influences, overtones that in the end fits perfectly in the symphonic prog atmosphere. This is a solid album that sets the standards from generations to come, specially as one of the reviewers said tht Asia Minor is the missing link between the symphonic bands of the golden age and the upcoming neo-prog wave. Very well played instrumental passages, there are more then with voice so only a joy for me and for my ears. Truly great album with melancholical voice. Strong pieces, all, no weak moments here. A gem of an album that needs attention from all serious prog listners. 4 stars easy, a fine cover art that at close look seams like the map of european side of Turkey of course in drawing format. Very nice music like the visual content. recommended
