THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT / I Robot (1977)

Sci-fi readers will recognise the title of the album. It’s a conceptual work that was originally about Asimov’s Robot Series but was later changed to be less specific. Lyrically it’s still heavily influenced by the author’s writings, but musically it’s Parsons' and Woolfson's special blend of experimentation, prog guitars, futuristic synth, funk and the usual amount of timeless melodies.
