2 stars The Alan Parsons Project's fourth studio album dealt with the concept of women and is suitably called "Eve." This would be the only APP album to feature lead vocals by women (although only two tracks). One of the singers is Clare Torry, of Pink Floyd fame. The other was Lesley Duncan, who never really achieved any commercial success. Again, like on previous albums, a host of guests make their presence here. However, there aren't really any standouts worth mentioning. The album still features Parsons' trademark production and engineering, but somehow even this is not enough to save this album from being one of the worst releases of the entire APP discography.

The album is chiefly pop rock, including a number of danceable numbers and a few ballads. The only track worth listening to is the powerful instrumental called "Lucifer." Although repetitive in nature, the soundscapes on this song are quite powerful sensing a strong feeling of evil. After that first track, it's mostly a "skipfest" for your CD player. Definitely a two-star album. For collectors and die-hard fans only. Even many APP fans are not too fond of this album.
