The fusion of Alan Parsons´ thematic intentions and exquisitely textured music comes to fruition on 1982´s ´Eye in the Sky´. On no other album by this group is there such a tight amalgamation of music, lyrics, and ideas, all combining to create songs that are accessible to a vast audience. Peaking at number three on Billboard´s Top 40, ´Eye in the Sky´ is a prime example of a fabulous rock song, highlighted by the harmonic beauty of Eric Woolfson. The album deals with the futuristic outlook of how human lives will be constantly monitored by ´Big Brother´ and the manner in which man´s right for freedom and choice may someday be thwarted by the government, or the powers that be. Aside from Parsons´ intriguing concept, the individual songs serve a dual purpose by carrying out the album´s message while at the same being perfect examples of well-crafted rock. The up-and-down flow of the instrumental ´Sirius´ is astonishing and is used wisely as the opening track. ´Mammagamma´ is another instrumental that brandishes the group´s trademarked mysteriousness, wrapped in an ominous science fiction-type glow. ´Psychobabble´ is a cerebral rock song that best represents the album´s concept, while the softness of ´Old and Wise´ sums up the threatening result that may someday evolve, with a hint of promise for a favorable outcome. With a powdery feel and pristine sound, ´Eye in the Sky´ is worthy of both amiable songs and conceptual substance, something not found on all of the Alan Parsons Project´s albums.
Amongst this remastered release is a plethora of bonus material, including several examples of the magical early takes for a unique opportunity to glimpse behind the curtain of the recording process.
