Having had the original CD from its release in 1984 it has always been a valued CD in my collection. After listening to all of Alan Parsons recordings this is one of the best. This is great music for a long car journey.Favourite tracks are 'Separate lives','Days are Numbers','Sooner or Later' and the instrumental title track 'Hawkeye' (which was used by radio and tv producers in the late 80's as backing music; especially sports programmes). If you are new to Alan Parsons' this is a good place to start. If you want something that has great lyrics,musicianship BUY THIS NOW....and at this price point its a bargin.

It's short and sweet, but not a bad album at all if you like the usual Project stuff, but it is very similar to Ammonia Avenue (their previous album) in style and sound. The opening track, 'Let's Talk About Me' is dramatic and lively. It welcomes a fairly rare lead vocal from David Paton.
Eric Woolfson seems to take the lead frequently on this and on 'Ammonia Avenue', and the second track, 'Separate Lives', is the first of 3 tracks on this album where he does so. Bearing in mind that, on this album, there are only 8 tracks, one of which is an instrumental, Eric seems to be doing an awful lot of lead vocals. It's a fairly up tempo song about the end of a relationship.
'Days Are Numbers' is slower and is a good track. The lowest point of the album follows with 'Sooner Or Later' and the title track. The album picks up again, though. The only insrumental on this album is called 'Hawkeye' and is a lively and enjoyable affair. 'Somebody Out There' features the excellent voice of Colin Blunstone (check out 'Old And Wise on the 'Eye In the Sky' album) who seems to have gone rather paranoid at this point. The changes in tempo are welcome in this song. The closing song is a slower number finding Eric feeling rather lonely on his own but deciding that he'll be okay that way. The album ends with a nice guitar playout from Mr. Paton, as most of the Project's albums do.
It's not the best, but it's not bad. One can't help wandering what kind of album they would have done if, rather than churn out 2 albums in close succession, hold on a bit and release an album of the best cuts from the 2 recording sessions. The best tracks from 'Ammonia avenue' and the best tracks from 'Vulture Culture' would have made a good album, better than 'Ammonia Avenue' and 'Vulture Culture individually. Instead, they both sound as if they're from the same session. But who am i to say? It's worth having, especially if you like their stuff.

To be honest, I would give this three and a half stars, but that isn't possible. I think three stars is a little harsh, and four stars is too much.

As a fanatic of Alan Parsons, I want to love this album. Thing is it just isn't all that great. It's a good album, but not brilliant.

Thing is, there ARE songs that would appeal to most people. Hawkeye is a very fun instrumental. Sooner or Later is a fantastic adult-contemporary style song. Vulture Culture is great fun.

If you're an APP fan, get the album. If you're not, check out the individual songs instead - find the ones that appeal, and get those instead.

If memory serves, 'Vulture Culture' fell into the LP/CD transition period, and was first issued (in 1984) in both formats. The CD, however, was strangely lacking in atmosphere in comparison with the vinyl version. For me, this remastered issue restores the clarity, brightness and atmosphere of the original album, and, in keeping with others in the reissue series, adds a lot of previously-unreleased material.

'Vulture Culture' was one of the Project's more topical albums, the title neatly reversing the contemporary 'culture vulture' tag to highlight the contemporary issue of predatory greed. 'Vulture Culture' was the first Project album to lack strings, a key ingredient of previous albums - and later offerings (particularly the excellent 'Gaudi') benefited from the return of Andrew Powell's lush orchestration (I can also strongly recommend the Philharmonia's classical take on the Project, conducted by Powell).

To me, this is not one of the Project's very best albums, but this is a strictly relative judgement - most Project albums (including this one) are far, far ahead of most other artists' material, and earlier albums (such as 'Tales', 'I Robot', 'Pyramid' and 'Eve') set an incredibly hard standard to follow. My view is that the earlier albums were best, then, and that the Project peaked with the superlative 'Turn of a Friendly Card'.

'Vulture Culture' might not (quite) match the earlier albums, but there are some great tracks here - I'd highlight 'Let's Talk About Me', the title track and 'Somebody Out There', whilst almost everyone lauds 'Hawkeye'. This remaster, presenting the album in brighter, more immediate and more atmospheric form, is very welcome.

I must emphasise that awarding only four stars is a purely relative judgement - by any standards other than those of the Project's best albums, 'Vulture Culture' would certainly merit all five.

An excellent album, with their best ever song included 'The same old sun', never has Eric sounded so good and the melody simply soars. The rest of the tracks are also outstanding. Worth getting, also for the inclusion of 'No questions only answers', which is a demo with acoustic guitars and Eric's lead vocal. It is a fantastic ballad and it would have been fascinating to see how this track had been developed. Why it was not is a mystery to me.
