AllMusic Review by

Unlike most of the releases in the Original Album Classics series, this set, released in the U.K., skips around a bit within the artist's discography. This features the third, fourth, fifth, ninth, and tenth albums by the Alan Parsons Project: Pyramid (1978), Eve (1979), The Turn of a Friendly Card (1980), Stereotomy (1985), and Gaudi (1987). The discs are in individual jewel cases that are housed in a basic, unattractive cardboard sleeve. For those who have Parsons' biggest albums -- such as I Robot and Eye in the Sky -- this is an ideal way to snap up a significant portion of the catalog at the price of roughly two full-price albums.
