Asia Alpha Album, 1983

Open your eyes and see the world...

As the first lines were written down, there was a hard way to make an inspiration for Globiuz. Back in 2001 it took a spark, but had never developed any further, until 2017, when the Asia had happened...

The colourful art of the album, created by Roger Dean, accompanied many early Asia covers and was something of its own. Such music played huge role in the Globiuz stand out, it had a bit of opera which author had transcended to the text of the novel.

Written in 1983, Alpha took a long and accidental way to be discovered, and the first couplets were dropped.

Open your eyes and see the world that stands before you, ... Asia, "Open Your Eyes", Alpha (1983).

Now, by listening this verse of Asia, written in 1983 we realize the Globiuz as a bright place, just like the cover of the album, depicted in a fantasy style. Was it a coincidence anyway?

Perhaps Asia was Globiuz?

We see the similarities in rhymes in the novel, but that's about it. Globiuz stands on its own way, and the collage of Alpha was only a prelude for it.

Globiuz has a big similarity to a rock opera — it works well with everything, just like the Asia album. Many decades later it still draws inspiration...
