3 stars Alan Parsons's third album came at the time that most prog giant groups were having difficulty putting out great records, and the slack had been picked-up by APP who was making concept albums, that most of progheads could sink their teeth into and get a meager meal out of it. Not that such albums as Pyramids , I Robot or Tales of EA Poe were bad , on the contrary (on top of being gorgeously produced, they had many fine songs that hit the airwaves) but in terms of prog contents , all APP were relatively lightweights. What Goes Up < Must Come Down is one of the most memorable tracks from that year but Hyper Gamma Spaces is also a highlight.

Had we been on a non-prog site this album might have received a higher rating.
