The Essential

by: Alan Parsons

Ten years after Arista's double-disc set The Definitive Collection, Arista/Legacy's double-disc compilation The Essential Alan Parsons Project arrived in 2007. Similar length, similar titles, and, if you already have the first one, there's not much reason to replace it. But if you're in the market for a Parsons comp that goes beyond the hits, this is the set to get: it has all those hits plus the radio staples and a good selection of album tracks, and it's sharply sequenced. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
