question Alan Parsons Project Albums
« Thread started on: Jun 14th, 2014, 04:34am »

Great band but which is your favourite album by them? Due to the annoying 8 option limit for polls, I've listed the first 7 albums and offered an "Other (please specify)" option. I believe this last option covers Vulture Culture, Stereotomy, Gaudi, The Sicilian Defence and Freudiana. Freudiana is technically an Alan Parsons/Eric Woolfson album, but if you want to vote for it, that's fine. I've heard most of these albums but not all of them, so I shouldn't really vote. But of the albums I have heard, my vote goes to Eye In The Sky. I think this is a superb album, with only Step By Step slightly letting the side down.

I only know the first 6 albums of APP. From these, I love Pyramid, Turn Of A Friendly Card and Eye In The Sky almost equally. Picked Pyramid, because it includes the mighty "Can`t take it with you".

I Robot gets my vote. I bought it when it first came out and it made quite an impression on my teenage mind.

Even though I consider 1972 thru 1975 the best years for rock and roll, 1977 was also an amazing year for new music

Pink Floyd - 'Animals'
Fleetwood Mac - 'Rumours'
David Bowie - 'Low' and 'Heroes'
Steely Dan - 'Aja'
ELO - 'Out Of The Blue'
Supertramp - 'Even In The Quietest Moments'
Yes - 'Going For The One'
Eric Clapton - 'Slowhand'
Peter Gabriel - 'Peter Gabriel 1" (car album)
Weather Report - 'Heavy Weather'
Styx - 'The Grand Illusion'
Jackson Brown - 'Running On Empty'
Kansas - 'Point Of Know Return'
Neil Young - 'Decade'
Lynyrd Skynyrd - 'Street Survivors'
Steve Miller - 'Book Of Dreams'
UFO - 'Lights Out'
Santana - 'Moonflower'
Jethro Tull - 'Songs From The Wood'
Linda Ronstadt - 'Simple Dreams'
Heart - 'Little Queen'
Anthony Phillips - 'The Geese And The Ghost'
10cc - 'Deceptive Bends'
Al Di Meola - 'Elegant Gypsy'
Journey - 'Next' (their first 3 albums were the best - before Steve Perry joined and took the band in another direction)
Procol Harum - 'Something Magic'

I used to have I Robot on vinyl when I was only 6-7 years old. Loved it smiley Eye In The Sky is one of their best albums too. They left quite a bunch of good albums wink

What do you guys think about Alan Parsons' solo albums? I love Try Anything Once but the sequel albums couldn't convince me. A Valid Path lost me for good as a fan.

Billy Joel - The Stranger
Talking Heads - Talking Heads:77
The Kinks - Sleepwalker
Grateful Dead - Terrapin Station
Crosby Stills & Nash - CSN
Joan Armatrading - Show Some Emotion
Gentle Giant - Playing The Fool
Jean Luc Ponty - Enigmatic Ocean
Little Feat - Time Loves A Hero
