5.0 out of 5 stars A sonic tour de force. 14 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
Whether you're a Parsons fan or not, it is difficult to see how this CD can fail to please. Musically it is chock-full of melodies varying from the sublime to upbeat, the lyrics demand careful attention and the audio presentation is state-of-the-art.
Would-be recording engineers - use this as a benchmark; would-be musicians - dream on. This guy has it all wrapped up.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is OK 11 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
If you like The Alan Parsons Project, you will find enough here to like the album. However, I think this product is not one of the best in the 'Parsons ranking scale'. Still, I like it enough to play it once in a while, but if you're not a die hard fan (like I am), just start with one of the earlier albums.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for fans 12 Nov 2013
By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There's an argument that every Alan Parsons album was 5% weaker than the previous one. This, Parsons' first solo album six years after the break-up of the Alan Parsons Project, reverses the decline but doesn't reach the highs of I Robot.

It's not the Alan Parsons Project, but all the familiar Parsons elements are here: the succession of guest singers, the 'dum - da da dum, da da dum' bass lines, the flowing piano fills, the immaculate production and the quasi-classical post-prog arrangements. Even if we're never going to hear anything as splendid as Hyper-Gamma-Spaces, the instrumentals pay off the best here, with Re-Jigue noticeably pillaging the sound pioneered by Jon Lord on his rock-classical fusion Sarabande.

This won't be to everyone's taste (it won't share many CD racks with the Ramones), but the only criticisms that aren't based purely on personal taste are the lack of progression since the 70s, the rather heavy 80s-style production and the lack of personal engagement that marked the best moments on I Robot and Pyramid.

You get the feeling that Parsons is never going to surprise you with anything new, but if his thing is your thing then he absolutely delivers.
