A Still Relevant Classic

"Yes, still relevant after all these years and well worth adding to your CD collection to replace that dusty LP. If you are too young to know what an LP is, then you should buy this disk to find out what good music is about. Alan Parsons is a giant in the music industry (albeit mostly as producer), and this is unquestionably the Project's finest hour."
Alan Parsons Project - Science Fiction Rock

"Alan Parsons was best known as the producer / engineer on Pink Floyd's magnum opus "Dark Side Of The Moon". He had also worked on albums by The Beatles and Al Stewart. Along with his songwriting partner Eric Wolfson Parson's formed the Alan Parsons project in 1977 releasing their first album "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination" an adaptation of the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The "Project" had mostly stable cast of musicians with a revolving roster of vocalists. "I Robot" was a concept album about "the rise of the machine and the decline of man" (from the liner notes). This is great stuff and probably one of the band's best albums. It was also the disc that brought them to a level of commercial success with the single "I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You". The album flows together with instrumental and vocal tracks filled with electronics and keyboards that were state of the art at the time. The album really is similar to Pink Floyd in spots especially on the excellent "Show Must Go On". As I have seen others mention this would make a great soundtrack for a science fiction film. Sonically the album still sounds fantastic. The version I have has not been remastered yet it sounds incredible on a good stereo system. The album may sound a bit dated today, but it remains one of my favorite discs of the 70's."
