APP-IRobot

 

Ah, the concept album. Long before there was a Matrix, the Borg or even Tron, there was I Robot, a record based on┬áthe classic sci-fi robot trilogy by Isaac Asimov. Veteran engineer and producer Alan Parsons, along with collaborator, songwriter and lyricist Eric Woolfson formed the Alan Parsons Project in 1975. Parsons was known for his work on albums like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles Abbey Road. Following on the heels of Tales of Mystery and Imagination their brilliant debut on the writings of Edgar Allen Poe, the two created this second installment of the APP based on Asimov’s exploration on the future man and his relationship with artificial intelligence.

This art rock classic is filled with mystery, tension, funk and plenty of hooks as the songs ebb and flow pulling the listener through the story line. There are plenty of great rockers such as I Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You , and Breakdown which are counter balanced with emotional introspective tunes like Don’t Let It Show and Day after Day. Give it a listen. If you surrender yourself to the machine you will be assimilated and in for quite a ride.
