Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Even with six different vocalists lending their talents to the album, Pyramid still remains an average bit of material from the Alan Parsons Project. Not only does the album's theme evolve around the mystique of the pyramid, but it also touches on man's fascination with superstition and its powers.

    This excellent record -made in the late seventies- fulls us with rich textures and apealling music. Each song is beautifull and different. The feeling of the egyptian pyramids covers you as you listen to it.
