Notes: The performance credits are not entirely clear as to who plays on which tracks. I presume, for example, that Downes only plays on his two co-writes. Rock of Faith saw Wetton and Downes working together for the first time in a decade and was the beginnings of the Wetton/Downes band that released an album in 2005.

(1) and (7) are instrumental pieces, while (11) is sung a cappella with a multitracked Wetton.

The album was dedicated in memoriam to Mike Stone (1951-2002) who, among other things, produced the first Asia albums. (HP, 6 Dec 05)
