Review by SouthSideoftheSky
2 stars Project nostalgia

The Alan Parsons Project proper seized to be in the early 90's (or rather already in the late 80's as Freudiana is not strictly speaking by "the project"). Alan Parsons then continued under his own name, playing live as well as releasing further studio albums in 1993, 1996, 1999, and the latest (full-length) release to date in 2004. This is now ten years ago already and since then it has been quiet in terms of new material. This single from 2010 being an exception, containing two new tracks.

The A-side is called All Our Yesterdays and is a song that would not have been out of place on one of the project's albums. It is a catchy tune with hit potential that will appeal to fans of Parsons and the project, but it will not impress anyone expecting something adventurous or progressive. As the title implies, it is a backward-looking exercise, celebrating the golden days of the 70's and 80's.

The B-side Alpha Centauri is an instrumental that seems to be based on the blueprint of Sirius from 1982's Eye In The Sky. While it hardly breaks any new ground, it is nice to hear that he's till got it. I like it more than the A-side really, but together the two tracks captures very well two different sides of the project. Needless to say it is impeccably produced.

Even without Eric Woolfson, Parsons has here created something that is very much in the style of The Alan Parsons Project and fans of that band will not be disappointed. There is no sign that this single foreshadows a new album though.
