    Longtime Friend

    I first met this album on vinyl, playing as background music in a local record shop. As I browsed, it penetrated to me that they were singing "quoth the raven ... nevermore." Now, being tone deaf, I can't enjoy much besides concert (a.k.a. "classical"), Gilbert & Sullivan, opera, some show music, some "ethnic" and traditional folk music, Gregorian chant, stuff like that. A very little 1950's rock and roll. My appreciation of modern music (which Alan Parsons Project then was) pretty well cuts off with the Big Band Sound. Yet I was so immediately taken with "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" that I bought the album at once. For many years, Alan Parsons Project was the only current group I played (in vinyl and cassette form); and I was simply delighted to find this old friend available on CD. I particularly enjoy what they do with Poe's "Cask of Amontillado."

    Magnificent experiment

    This WAS the project, the band had no intentions of making anything after this but what they created was so good that they ended up with a very good career making several very good albums. This, their first, is a masterpiece (and it wouldn't be their last masterpiece either).

    A True Classic

    This album is a true classic. While almost all the Alan Parsons Project albums are excellent. This is the cream of the crop and belongs in everyone's music collection.
