3 stars Released only as a bonus for fans who bought The 'Alan Parsons Project' box set which contained all of the official APP studio albums. 'The Sicilian Defence' is a classic chess opening and as such, it was a clever name for the album APP turned in after 'Eve'. They knew full well it would be rejected and they could now get down to serious negotiations for their next contract.

As an album, it is totally unlike the previous albums. There are no vocals, live drums, guitars, or orchestra. There are a few electronic workouts which are appealing, mixed between solo piano. Again, they are nice but none of this has much commercial appeal.

It must have worked as the Alan Parson Project went on to release six more studio albums and a bunch of compilations for Arista.
