I have made some some polls for PR and Xover bands and all worked well, letís try with Alan parsonís Project, who combined his outstanding production and songwriting skills with the fabulous orchestration by Andrew Powell and the lyrics of Erik Woolfson.

The team worked perfectly, every album, Prog, Rock or Pop sounds great, will reduce my options to a maximum of three songs from each album ordered according to date of release

PS: My vote goes with In the Lap of the Gods from Pyramyds

Out of this list, Old and Wise with Colin Blunstone on vocals. A hard choice though as I like or love a lot of these songs.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Oh, I do like Alan Parsons very much. They got many outstanding songs, specially on their first albums, and there are many I really love that I would like to vote for, either from the ones chosen by Ivan or some he left out. However, seeing that "La Sagrada Familia" is often forgotten (perhaps because it was released by the end of the Project's life), I choose to vote for it, for it is a fantastic song as good as any from their golden period.

From that album (Gaudi) I like Paseo de Gracia much more, but both are great

I Robot followed by Turn of a Friendly Card (the whole thing), followed by Silence and I off the list.  I also like the atmospheres of The Fall of the House of Usher a lot.

"I Robot" with honorable mention to "Eye in the Sky".  

Pretty much the entire I Robot album is indispensable to me though.

The Fall of the House of Usher has always been one of my favorite prog epics. It epitomizes the classical-rock crossover.

IMHO, that's the best album by The Alan Person Project, and I Iove every single track from it.

Hmmm...when I first got into prog, I kind of went on a bit of an APP bender, buying up pretty much all their albums on CD at a great price....I can't say I listen to them that much these days, but I really enjoy them, wouldn't dream of getting rid of them!

I think I'll pick `The Raven', if only because it pops into my head quite regularly! But tracks like `Limelight', `Games People Play', `Don't Answer Me', `What Goes Up...' all come to mind as catchy and enjoyable pop pieces! :)
