I Robot album for sale Product Description

I Robot album for sale by Alan Parsons was released Jan 01, 1990 on the Arista label. Alan Parsons delivered a detailed blueprint for his Project on their 1975 debut, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, but it was on its 1977 follow-up, I Robot, that the outfit reached its true potential. Borrowing not just its title but concept from Isaac Asimov's classic sci-fi Robot trilogy, this album explores many of the philosophies regarding artificial intelligence -- will it overtake man, what does it mean to be man, what responsibilities do mechanical beings have to their creators, and so on and so forth -- with enough knotty intelligence to make it a seminal text of late-'70s geeks, and while it is also true that appreciating I Robot does require a love of either sci-fi or art rock, it is also true that sci-fi art rock never came any better than this. I Robot CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs.   ...See Full Description

Alan Parsons Best Work!
If any of you know anything about Alan Parsons, or were a 70's audiophile, you would know that he was the executive producer for Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs. Because of his extensive knowledge of the studio, this album sounds totally phenomenal. Not only are the songs classics, but the album in whole. It just sounds like you were there while they were making. If I could recommed any of his works, it would be this one. If you don't have it, get it!

An album that came from another world for human ears!
"I Robot" was the first album I purchased. When I first heard this album I got confused. How could this uncommon music be made in 1977 (when I was born)? I couldn’t believe it. While punk music was emerging, an excellent music producer (who worked previously with Pink Floyd) was creating, experimenting, giving shape and composing an alternative type of music. Something completely new but commercial at the same time. It was really a good idea to have different vocalists depending on the type of song. This concept album starts with a mystic sound followed by a simple keyboard riff that develops into a more complex arrangement by adding different instruments and voices progressively. This instrumental track, “I Robot”, and the next track are really groovy but both of them have a different structure. The second one is more commercial but less original. It’s a catchy kind of funky song very well sung. The third song is a beautiful ballad and, in my opinion, it has the type of Alan’s most personal feeling on it. I really don’t understand why similar songs such as “Silence And I” (from the album “Eye In The Sky”) and “Ammonia Avenue” didn’t become hits. I think these songs are as beautiful as great hits like “Old And Wise” or “Don’t Let It Show”. “Breakdown” is a good song that has a perfect ending sung by a choir. I think it would have been better to extend the “choir” part. I find this part similar to some Mike Oldfield or Kate Bush choir arrangements. The hit “Don’t Let It Show” comes afterwards and won’t let you indifferent. “The Voice” is not a bad song but from this point the album decreases. “Nucleus” is an instrumental track for psychedelic music lovers. “Day After Day” recalls some “relaxing” Pink Floyd tunes but it lacks originality. “Total Eclipse” is an infuriating song connected by the best instrumental track (from Alan Parsons career), from my point of view. I think this album could have been perfect without some of the “experimental” stuff and improving a couple of songs.
