One of their best albums.
Joe Consumer
Now 33 years and a lot of changes later - lots of music has come and gone but I still listen to this album from start to finish at least once a month while I work.
Mr. Mike
The version I have has not been remastered yet it sounds incredible on a good stereo system.

As I'm sure you already know, I Robot has been a staple in the playlists of stereo shops around the globe since its release in 1977. You could always count on an Alan Parsons album when you wanted to test a stereo system. Parsons is a true master of the studio, and to many, this album was (and still is) his finest hour. Well, now it's even better. Classic Records just released I Robot in D.A.D. format and the sound is even more spectacular than before. The CD version pales in comparison.
The album only produced one hit single, "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You," a major success during the disco craze of the late 70's. Fortunately, the song gave the album the sales boost it needed, exposing Parsons and the rest of the Project to the masses. Naturally, the rest of the album is nothing like the single, ranging from the pulsing instrumental electronics of the title track, to songs that should've been hits but weren't ("Breakdown," which featured Hollies vocalist Allan Clarke on lead vocals), to the quieter songs like "Some Other Time" and "Don't Let it Show."
Where the D.A.D. really shines is on "The Voice." There are an unbelievable number of subtle nuances going on in this song, and you can hear each of them (plus several things that you couldn't hear before) with breathtaking clarity. The low end on this track in particular will literally shake the room. As the song segued into "Nucleus" and then "Day After Day," I was taken back to the days of Laserium; only I don't ever remember it sounding this good inside the planetarium. Maybe it was just the 70's...
Classic has done a consistently excellent job with their D.A.D. line, and I Robot surpasses all expectations. Turn down the lights, turn up the volume, and get ready to be blown away.
(note: You must have a DVD player to listen to this disc. It will not play in CD players.)

"I Robot", originally released in 1977, was the second release from the Alan Parsons Project. Today it stands as an emblem of what music can and SHOULD be...if all the major record companies were not more interested in image than artistry! I would really love to see Alan Parsons gain more notoriety for all of his hard work, and I believe that his albums would apeal to those who love the classic melodic rock such as The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Barclay James Harvest, E.L.O., or latter day-Beatles. In my opinion Alan Parsons has never released a bad album. Like everyone I have my favorites that hold special meaning for me (and in fact I find his 3 most recent albums to be some of his best work ever), but Parsons has never released anything that he will have to be embarrassed over a few years down the road! (I can't say the same for all classic rock acts, can you?) Well, "I Robot" is no different by Parsons standards of quality, it is an album that I can play from start to finish with not one bit of filler or fluff to be found. Of course this is a "concept" album, based on the struggle of man against machine, and this only helps to make the album more deeply interesting as a listening experience. The production, as you would expect, is pristine throughout. Eventhough this album was recorded in the mid-70's, it still sounds extremely full-bodied and clear on CD. There are plenty of melodic rock gems to be found here, such as "Breakdown", "Some Other Time" "The Voice", and "Don't Let it Show". There is a touch of funky rock with "I Woudn't Want To Be Like You", and a liberal dose of what would come to be known as 'new age music' on instrumental tracks like "I Robot", "Nucleus" and "Genesis Ch.1 V. 32". Come on music lovers! Hear what a real artist can do in the recording studio, pick up "I Robot", you won't regret it!

Like many people, my primary exposure to the Alan Parsons Project had been strictly their top 40 hits. Shortly after the release of "Eye in the Sky", I was reassigned to an Air Force base in Korea (early 80's). While there, one of the friends I made was a huge Alan Parsons fan and had all of their albums. I borrowed and listened to them all over time, but it was this one, "I Robot", which I found to be a masterpiece. Although all of the Parsons Project albums are concept albums, this one is the ultimate concept album. Most people are familiar with the radio hit "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You", but that is just one good song on an album filled with great music, that just seems to naturally flow together in the order in which it is presented. "Day After Day (The Show Must Go On)" is one of the most stunningly beautiful songs ever recorded by anyone. "Some Other Time" is good enough to have been a hit single. The production and musicianship are incredible. This is prog-rock at its absolute best.

Format: Audio CD
A musical meditation of the "Rise Of Machine and The Decline Of Man," the second Alan Parsons Project album hit all the notes that "Tales Of Mystery and Imagination" missed. For starters, this was a straight forward rock album, without the debut's classical pretensions. It was also where Parsons perfected his atmospheric instrumentals, opening the album with the (precursor to electronica) title track and then ending with the moody "Genesis Ch 1 V 32." You do get the jarring soundtrack climax of "Total Eclipse," which I always guessed was where man got terminated from the scene.

For an album that dealt with the fall of the human race, "I Robot" is a surprisingly human affair. The slow beat disco of "I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You" and the dance floor paranoia of "The Voice" are anything but mechanical. The ballads of loss, "Don't Let It Show" and "Day After Day (The Show Must Go On)" could be about any typical heartbreak. Even Pat Benatar could spot the drama inherent to "Don't Let It Show," including it on her debut.

It wasn't just the drama and the sci-fi that made "I Robot" so interesting. It was the musicianship. Not as pretentious as ELP and bringing the acrobatics of Yes down to bite size nuggets, Parsons had no difficulty in constructing pop that was progressive, meticulously produced and built up like the studio architect that he is. The Alan Parsons Project recording an album in the period of the seventies this pristine when disco's big boom was steamrollering everything in its path was a pretty bold statement then. Because of Parsons' attention to detail overriding any urge to make music of the moment, "I Robot" still holds up almost 30 years later.
