    As a man who worked behind the scenes on both the Beatles' ABBEY ROAD and Pink Floyd's DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, Alan Parsons certainly earned his reputation for being a producer and engineer with vision. Parsons applied that same sense of vision to his self-named solo project, which featured a revolving cast of musicians and vocalists. Though the music of the Alan Parsons Project can be classified as soft rock, and its accessible melodies and lush arrangements made it a perfect match for pop radio in the 1970s and '80s, it's also progressive, conceptual, and highly sophisticated.
    THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION is a carefully selected and assembled two-disc set that represents the range and precision of Parsons's music from the '70s to the mid-'90s. His early work, inspired by science fiction and progressive rock, favored synth-heavy instrumentals. At the turn of the '80s, Parsons was leaning toward a more pop-friendly sound (as evidenced by the hits "Time" and "Eye in the Sky," both of which are included here), yet this material sacrifices none of his high-minded aesthetic, a trademark of his sound that continued into the '90s. As an overview of Parsons's career, and as a primer for anyone interested in the art rock of the period, THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION is indispensable.
