Alan Parsons work of Art!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Tales Of Mystery And Imagination - Edgar Allan Poe (Audio CD)
Tales & Mystery is a collection of songs based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Eric Woolfson & Alan Parsons team up as the prime songwriters. And what an excellent job they have done. The ballads are glorious, the rock songs are tight and rock out. But the most inventive and seductive segment of the album is the sensational 'The Fall of the House of Usher'. As the song builds up you can feel the tension whilst the orchestra grasps you with pure emotion, until it hits it inevitable climax.
This album is a must listen, whether you're fans of the genre or not, but I definitely recommend it to be heard in one listen. The best of the Alan Parson's collection as far as I am concerned although I'm sure plenty would disagree.
Nothing short of spectacular!
