A Review by:
The Dude on the Right

This was a thrill to listen to again, and another one of those CD’s best played at a little louder volume. Why, well, kinda like classical music, The Alan Parsons Project likes to have a wide range from soft music to loud, and to appreciate the nuances of the softer sounds, it’s better to have the stereo up, and let yourself get blown away when they hit a crescendo. A simple case in point for this CD is the opening instrumental, “I Robot.” Personally my favorite on the CD is “Day After Day (The Show Must Go On)”, but as a whole “I Robot” is one of those CD’s that doesn’t disappoint me no matter how many times I listen to it.

Let yourself drift away in some of the dreamy instrumentals, and realize that one day the robots will figure out they are smarter than us, even if we program them not to kill us. Hopefully that will be our ancestor’s problem. It’s 90% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale.

That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
