Some C3's, F4's and G4's from Wetton, and glorious singing up to G#5 from Anneke.

I have some Asia albums--I can help out!

John hits A4s during "Countdown To Zero" (from the Astra album). He also hits A4s on "Sole Survivor" (from the self-titled debut album).

Here's an overlooked one. Several dips to F#2 and E2 during the first half. Rock
Also some A4's later.

I actually like his singing voice better than Lake's, he has such a wonderful, rich timbre. His G4s in "Starless" are In Love

Not sure about the C5 from "By The Light of Day". Sounds pretty black to me, but not sure about the pitch though...

The vocals that hit it are in the left channel.

Great lows! Also The Consultation is part of a larger piece entitled Phase II: Symmetry. Should we label it as the former or the latter?

The latter. But, if we want to elaborate, we could put "Phase II: Symmetry (The Consultation)".

I don't really know Wetton but he has a nice performance here:

Very strong vocals in the chorus with solid G♯4s and A4s.
