    Thanks for all the reviews so far which is 8 I think so we should see another 4 from the signed up participants, but don't let this stop others the more the merrier and you never know you may like it.

    Like a few other earlier posters APP is a new one on me and not my usual musical tipple. Ive ďspunĒ this on Spotify 4 times now and I have to agree that its beautifully produced.

    I read this book when l was 18 (30 years ago) and thought it was an excellent novel for its day on the subject matter but l cant remember anything much about it now to be fair. The concept of producing an LP inspired by a book is very novel .

    I really enjoyed it and I think I will check out some of the other material on the back of it. Iím also scoring this one 8/10.

    Thanks, Martin

    You may want to try APP- Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Edgar Allan Poe), and another favourite of mine is Stereotomy.

    What a curious attitude. Either you like the album or you don't. To pass it by and not comment, because session musicians are used and there is no "Alan Parsons' group" of musicians as such, seems a most peculiar position to take - and somewhat against the spirit of the Album Club.

    Barry , if you had saved that comment until 1/1/2020 that would have been your first snide comment of the year

    I have a opinion and I used it , or is that against your judgment , I also have freedom of speech also used .

    Hope I have not spelt anything wrong ? as you like humiliating people who have issues with spelling also

    Dissapointing as a MOD

    Shame you didn't give it a go Al, you might have enjoyed it, it is a very well thought after album (and not just by me). Never mind its your choice, you'll never know if you missed a GEM!
