5 stars Alan PARSON is the king of catchiness and emotions here! No more sophisticated complex patterns. He proves here that complexity is not necessarily required to make an excellent album. All the songs are at least very good, and more: they are all very catchy and thus will retain your attention! That's a tour de force by PARSON! Sincerely, "Pyramid" is among my favorite ones from him. I have miscellaneous kinds of feelings when I listen to the tracks. "Voyager" was the theme of a jeans advertisement on TV; The poignant "What Goes Up" has a mix of romance, nostalgia and melancholy; The Elton JOHN esque "One More River" will give you a kick in the ass; The funny "Pyramania" will make you sing and beat the ground. "Hyper Gamma Spaces" announces a complete mastering of serious modern rythmic & melodic keyboards. You will notice that the lead & backing vocals are really among the main strength of this album.
