While this does have some of the very best of Alan Parsons Project, I feel it is incomplete without any music from Tales Of Mystery And Imagination - Edgar Allen Poe. While I won't condemn this collection, I can't give it 5 stars, either. If you're new to Alan Parsons and looking for a general overview of his style, this is not a bad place to start. And if you decide to get Tales Of Mystery And Imagination - Edgar Allen Poe, be careful - get the original version with the dark green cover. It has more guitar and also narration from Orson Welles.

This album contains some of the most recognized and iconic Alan Parsons songs, spanning about a decade. The music is wonderful and most enjoyable...very good picks. I highly recommend this for Alan Parsons fans who would like to have their hits on CD without having to buy several albums!

One of the most creative & interesting Music-groups of the early 1980's. Alan Parsons himself had a wealth of recording/audio-engineering experience honed/developed at the Legendary Abbey-Road Studios working on the very-Late Beatles albums and of course engineering/producing Pink Floyd's groundbreaking 'Dark-Side of the Moon'! And Parsons' professional-partner Eric Woolfson was already a successful songwriter-producer prior to forming the 'Alan Parsons Project' in the late-70's.

These compositions and songs of the Alan Parsons Project are quite intriguing in terms of both Music & Words = with a bit of otherworldly (SciFi) and even mystic overtones thrown in the creative-mix ...........carrying over more than a bit of the hyper-imaginative artistic-sensibilities of 'Pink Floyd' with slightly more 'popular-music' orientation (but just as meticulously produced thanks to Parsons' depth of recording knowledge/experience!)

This 'Very Best of' covers most of the APP's most melodically and lyrically intriguing Hits like "Eye-in-the-Sky" "Games People Play" and "Don't Answer Me" which were immensely popular in their day (and deservedly so!

This really should have been put out as a two disc set, because they miss much of their better stuff. I'm not sure why they included "Sagrada Familia" instead of the bigger hit on that album "Standing on Higher Ground". They made tons of superb songs and that's why they needed two discs for this best of offering. It does have some good tunes but it's just short measure for this great of a group. Just thought I'd throw my two-cents in.
