    Gaudi is the final album by The Alan Parsons Project, and it was released in 1987. Gaudi refers to Antonio Gaudí,[1] the Spanish architect, and the opening track references what is probably his best known building, La Sagrada Familia.
    "Closer to Heaven" and "Money Talks" were used in an episode of the TV series Miami Vice.
    A musical with the same name based on the songs of this album was released 1993 in Germany with the songs sung in English.

    Stereotomy is the penultimate album by The Alan Parsons Project. Although generally considered better musically than its predecessor, Vulture Culture, it was not as successful commercially, perhaps due to much fewer vocals from Eric Woolfson (he only appears on a small section of the title track). The album is structured differently from earlier Project albums, containing three lengthy tracks (one the longest instrumental the Project ever made) and two minute-long songs at the end. It is a full digital production and the CD release was encoded using the two-channel Ambisonic UHJ format.
    The original vinyl packaging of the album was different from all the reissues: it featured somewhat more elaborate artwork of the paper sleeve supplied with a special color-filter oversleeve. When inserted, the oversleeve filtered some of the colors of the sleeve artwork, allowing four different variations (2 per side) of it. That was supposed to symbolize visual stereotomy. In the reissues, only one variant remained.

    Vulture Culture is an album by The Alan Parsons Project. The first side of the LP (CD tracks 1-4) consists entirely of four-minute pop songs, and the second side varies widely, from the subdued funk of the title track to the bouncing, desert-like "Hawkeye". At the beginning of 1985, the single "Let's Talk About Me" reached the Top 40 in Germany (where the album was #1) and in the Netherlands. The song features voice-over commentary from Lee Abrams, credited on the album as "Mr. Laser Beam" (an anagram of his name).
    Originally, the album was intended to be the second LP of a double album, with Ammonia Avenue being the first. "Sooner or Later" was recently described by Parsons himself as, "the third attempt to try and get another hit with the "Eye in the Sky"-esque chugging guitar line - "Prime Time" from Ammonia Avenue was the second, which I thought was a little more successful in that respect."
    The song "Hawkeye" is an instrumental but does contain a line from Monica, a woman working at the canteen in Abbey Road Studios. The line she says is: "Only what's on the menu".
    This is the only Project album that does not feature the orchestration of Andrew Powell.

    1. Let's Talk About Me 4:29
    2. Separate Lives 4:59
    3. Days Are Numbers 4:31
    4. Sooner Or Later 4:25
    5. Vulture Culture 5:22
    6. Hawkeye 3:49
    7. Somebody Out There 4:55
    8. The Same Old Sun 5:25

    Ammonia Avenue is one of the most commercially successful albums of The Alan Parsons Project. It was the second of the group's three most accessible albums, beginning with Eye in the Sky and ending with Vulture Culture. Ammonia Avenue was originally intended to be released as a double album with Vulture Culture's material forming the second record.
    The Phil Spector-influenced million selling smash "Don't Answer Me" was Ammonia Avenue's lead single. "Prime Time" was a follow up release that fared well in the top 40."Since The Last Goodbye" and "You Don't Believe" were also minor hits. Music videos for "Don't Answer Me" and "Prime Time" were produced in 1984, the former with art and animation by MW Kaluta.
    The title of the album was inspired by Eric Woolfson's visit to Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in Billingham, England, where the first thing he saw was a street with miles of pipes, no people, no trees and a sign that said 'Ammonia Avenue'. The album focused on the possible misunderstanding of industrial scientific developments from a public perspective and a lack of understanding of the public from a scientific perspective.

    1. Prime Time 5:03
    2. Let Me Go Home 3:20
    3. One Good Reason 3:36
    4. Since the Last Goodbye 4:34
    5. Don't Answer Me 4:11
    6. Dancing on a High Wire 4:22
    7. You Don't Believe 4:26
    8. Pipeline 3:56
    9. Ammonia Avenue 6:30

    Songs on this album are in a number of different styles, from cool and funky to lyrical and heavily orchestrated. The sleeve was green with an image of the Eye of Horus, which was gold-foil stamped for early pressings of the LP. It is variously reported as their best-selling album, and was the last Platinum record from the band (joining I Robot and The Turn of a Friendly Card).
    Vocal performers were Eric Woolfson, David Paton, Chris Rainbow, Lenny Zakatek, Elmer Gantry and Colin Blunstone.
    Eye in the Sky contained the Project's greatest hit, the title track with lead vocals by Eric Woolfson. It hit #3 on the Billboard charts in the US in October of 1982 and #6 in Canada. Says Parsons of the song, "...I hated the song when we first started recording it — I was quite ready to drop it altogether. Then we hit upon the hypnotic guitar chugs and it all came together."

    The Turn of a Friendly Card is a progressive rock album by The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1980. The album focuses on gambling, and loosely tells the tale of a middle-aged man who grows restless and takes a chance by going to a casino and betting all he has, only to lose it all. The original LP had a side-long title piece, which was broken up into five tracks (as were the CD versions except the West German pressing), with the five sub-tracks having their names listed with sub-numberings - a la an outline numbering system.. The Turn of a Friendly Card is also notable for spawning the moderate hits "Games People Play" and "Time," the latter of which was Eric Woolfson's first lead vocal appearance.

    1. May Be a Price to Pay 4:58
    2. Games People Play 4:22
    3. Time 5:04
    4. I Don't Wanna Go Home 5:03
    5. The Gold Bug 4:34
    6. The Turn of a Friendly Card 16:27

    Eve is a progressive rock album by The Alan Parsons Project. It was released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). Eve's focus is on women and men's attitudes towards them, and was notable as the only time a Project related recording featured lead female voices (Clare Torry and Lesley Duncan). Originally released in audio cassette format; the two sides of the cassette opposed each other thematically, castigating women on one side and praising them on the other.
    On later Alan Parsons releases, "Mr Time" (from Try Anything Once - Jacqui Copland) & " Call Of The Wild" (from The Time Machine - Máire Brennan) featured lead female voices. The album Freudiana (intended to be the Project's eleventh album but released as a solo Eric Woolfson album) also featured lead female vocals.

    Pyramid is a progressive rock album by The Alan Parsons Project. It was released in 1978. At the time the album was conceived, interest in pyramid power was very high.

    I Robot is a progressive rock album recorded by The Alan Parsons Project, engineered by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson in 1977. It was released by Arista Records in 1977 and re-released on CD in 1984 and 2007. It was intended to be based on the I, Robot stories written by Isaac Asimov, and actually Woolfson spoke with Asimov, who was enthusiastic about that. As the rights had already been granted to a TV/movie company, the album's title was altered slightly by removing the comma, and the theme and lyrics were made to be more generically about robots rather than specific to the Asimov universe.
    The cover inlay reads: "I ROBOT... THE STORY OF THE RISE OF THE MACHINE AND THE DECLINE OF MAN, WHICH PARADOXICALLY COINCIDED WITH HIS DISCOVERY OF THE WHEEL... AND A WARNING THAT HIS BRIEF DOMINANCE OF THIS PLANET WILL PROBABLY END, BECAUSE MAN TRIED TO CREATE ROBOT IN HIS OWN IMAGE."
    The title of the final track, "Genesis Ch.1 v.32", follows this theme by implying a continuation to the story of Creation, since the first chapter of Genesis only has 31 verses. The track "Don't Let it Show" was later covered by Pat Benatar on her album In the Heat of the Night.

    1. I Robot 6:02
    2. I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You 3:22
