All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Vulture Culture's theme is another in which the fallacy of humankind is front and center. This time Parsons' message concerns the fact that everyone lives in a parasitic society, where it's every man for himself. Those who can't fend for themselves simply won't survive in a world where the kindness of the human spirit is rapidly deteriorating. "Let's Talk About Me" has a choppy rhythm and addresses the theme in its words, while the instrumental "Hawkeye" adds life and contrast to the album at just the right time.

    Farewell To The First Golden Era

    VULTURE CULTURE is the last Alan Parsons Project album to feature either their hit-oriented pop-rock sound or the vocals of Eric Woolfson. It was recorded at the same time as AMMONIA AVENUE, which was about communication breakdown, and focuses on the inhumanity of people toward one another. The opening track, "Let's Talk About Me", has a me-first attitude, but by the song "Same Old Sun", the theme changes to "we're in this together." If you enjoy AMMONIA AVENUE, you'll want VULTURE CULTURE.
