An awesome storytellers album!!

Magic Man

Having been a long time fan of the group "The Alan Parsons Project" I find this particular work of thiers rather a aquried taste, but once you give it a chance it doesn't disappoint.

This album "Tales of Mystery & Imagination." which comprises some of the best known and loved collected works of that dark genius, Mr. Edgar Allan Poe is quite a impressive feat one would agree. Here you have Mr. Poes most notable works - in song and verse. My personal favorites are "To One In Paradise" "The Raven" "(The System of) Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether)

Herein this great album you have Mr. Parsons and Mr. Wolfson, among many others presenting (or would it be more accurate to say "reciting"?) Mr. Poes famous works in song and verse which they do admirably well. Can't believe that this album isn't a school teacher's or English Professors dream, it's a great tool to get young people aquainted with the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. Whether it's your cup of tea or not, at the most one can say this album is "literate" for sure. Many Thanks for reading this review.

About The Alan Parsons Project

Engineer/producer Alan Parsons and his colleague, songwriter and lyricist Eric Woolfson, formed the Alan Parsons Project in 1975. Throughout their career, the Alan Parsons Project recorded concept albums (including adaptations of Poe and Asimov books) with a revolving cast of session musicians. Released in 1982, Eye in the Sky was their greatest success; the title track charted in the Top Ten on the pop charts and the album went platinum. Although they weren't able to repeat that success, the group maintained a devoted cult audience, even after they stopped recording following 1987's Gaudi. ~ TiVo Staff
