The single and future album opener features commanding lead vocals from bassist John Wetton and the smoldering guitars of Steve Howe. “Finger on the Trigger” has a drive that contains a contentious edge from the opening note due to the heavy beat employed by drummer Carl Palmer.
Since this track is a rocker, Geoff Downes’ keyboards take a back seat for much of the song which is a responsible and, of course, a veteran move. Omega will be the follow-up to the reunited band’s 2008 effort Phoenix which placed the band back on the Billboard 200 for the first time since 1985.
Asia is John Wetton (Bass/Lead Vocals), Geoff Downes (Keyboards/Backing Vocals), Steve Howe (Guitar/Backing Vocals), & Carl Palmer (Drums).
