Format: Audio CD
The Alan Parsons Project usually included one or more instrumental pieces on their albums. I haven't listened to all of Parsons' albums, but what I've heard I really like, and I like the instrumental tracks as well or more than the vocal tracks--especially 'I Robot' and 'Where's the Walrus'.

This compilation gathers some of the best instrumentals in one place, nicely sequenced. They are stylistically similar enough that you could believe that this wasn't a compilation if you didn't know better, with the exception of 'Hawkeye', which sounds like a reject from the 'Flashdance' soundtrack.

This isn't really a good way to get to know Alan Parsons' work (the CD 'I Robot' is a great place to start, if all you've ever heard is 'Eye in the Sky' on the radio), but it's a nice way to enjoy his instrumental work without having to buy all his CDs.

There's not much to say - talented writing, exquisite musicianship, and shimmering production. So why only four stars? We all think we can compile a better anthology than the artists and/or studios, so here's my 'better anthology' - axe 'Hawkeye', and include 'Lucifer' and the admittedly-ubiquitous 'Sirius'. Now THAT'S a five-star album.

Where are "Hyper-Gamma Spaces," "Lucifer" and "Secret Garden," 3 of their greatest works? "In the Lap of the Gods" would have been welcome, too. This was a good start, but I'm going to re-burn it with the aforementioned, plus tracks from "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" and "Try Anything Once."

Yes, some of this veers dangerously close to wallpaper. And some of it sounds like bad Passport ("Hawkeye" for e.g.), or a generic-chase-scene-from-a-generic-Action Thriller ("Where's The Walrus" for another e.g.). And yes, for some weird reason they left off some great INSTRUMENTALS (like the wonderful "Secret Garden" from the otherwise tepid EVE, for yet another e.g.). Oh - - and yes, the tracks are taken out of context but hey, they're instrumentals so who cares. And no, listening to this CD is probably not the best way to get into Alan Parsons or his Project. But when it's good ("Voyager") or great ("The Gold Bug"), you might tend to forget all that. (The cheesy vocals at the end of the latter make it quite irresistable, but if you can convince me that the guy's not really singing "Hey! Bouncy Bouncy, Bounce!" I promise I will love you forever.) On the other hand, you might not forget that most of it is pretty derivative. Ah, so what. At least it doesn't try to pass itself off as jazz, even with the ubiquitous sax.

I have a question. On the APP Anthology CD that I got, each track begins 2 seconds early in the PREVIOUS track. Is this just the CD I have or were all CDs made like this? It IS an original, not a bootleg.

If I want to hear the beginning 2 seconds of track 14, I have to listen to the end of track 13.

HELP!
