"Alpha" is the second studio album of Asia, released in 1983. It was the final studio album featuring the original lineup until 2008's Phoenix.
"Alpha" is dominated by the songwriting tandem of John Wetton and Geoff Downes. All the tracks on the album are written by Wetton/Downes, except for "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes", by Wetton only. Steve Howe, guitarist and a key songwriting contributor on the debut album, was left out due to reasons not entirely clear.
