Review by Guillermo
3 stars One of the most successful songs from The Alan Parsosn Project, it is still played a lot in some Oldies FM Radio Stations in my city .

It was in 1982 when I listened to this song, and after their great song called "Time", which was also released as a single in 1981 (and also it is still played a lot in those Oldies FM Radio stations), I was a little disappointed. But "Eye in the Sky", despite being a very Pop style song, it is still good. Maybe their "Eye in the Sky" album was their most successful album, and maybe I should recommend to buy the album instead. Lead singer Eric Woolfson has not a great voice, but his voice works very well in this song. It is curious that some of their greatest hit singles were sung by him, and not by their guest singers who were better singers than him, IMO. But this song is maybe the most known song from this band. It is a very good example of the Rock Pop music of the eighties with a bit of Progresive Rock arrangements.
