1 stars Lucifer is a woman?

Alan Parsons fourth album is a very weak one with only one good track, the opening instrumental Lucifer. The rest of the songs are so lacklustre, generic and middle-of-the-road that I find it difficult to find words to describe them in detail. The worst songs from the previous Pyramid album give you a very good idea of what the majority of the songs here sound like. Some are Disco-ish Pop tunes, others are Rock 'N' Roll numbers and yet others are mildly symphonic ballads. But nothing here comes even remotely close to Prog.

The concept this time - as we all know there is always a concept behind the Project's albums - is women, or rather perhaps the relation between men and women. 'Eve' obviously refers to that famous character in The Bible which according to that particular story was the very first woman ever. I'm not really sure whether this album is a bit sexist or not? Anyway, if Parsons and Woolfson wanted to make the point that women are evil, then they really succeeded to make an album that is from hell! I would say that Eve is the low-point of the entire career of the Alan Parsons Project.

Thankfully, the Project would go on to make a much better album with their next one, Turn Of The Cards. Eve is for completionists only.
