2008 digitally remastered and expanded edition of the Alan Parsons classic album that was originally released in 1978. Parsons himself digital remastered all his catalog albums in 2007 using the original master tapes. The difference in sound quality is amazing-each sounds absolutely fantastic. The packaging includes revamped booklets with fresh, elaborated liner notes based on interviews with Parsons and Eric Woolfson as well as rare photos and memorabilia. This edition of Pyramid features seven bonus tracks including early demos, rough mixes and instrumentals. 16 tracks total. Sony/BMG.

But the Egyptian overtones and pyramid motif is just a surface, a tangible stage set, if you will. What this album is really about, lyricaly and intellectualy, is man and his quest for eternal life and coming to grips (or not) with one's own inevitable mortality. Just look at the song titles... "In the lap of the Gods", "Can't take it with you", "The eagle will rise again".
Hammer dulcimers, timpamis, Egyptian flutes and a heavy choir blend with rock instrumentation and the result is one of the greatest recording projects ever captured. Recorded at Alan's home away from home Abbey Road studios, it sounds like is was recorded in and around the pyramids with echo, atmosphere and grandiosity.
Colin Blunstone's sole vocal contribution on "Eagle will rise" is beautiful and sorrowful beyond description.
The instrumental "In the lap of the Gods" is bold, dynamic, exotic, powerful and damn near overwhelming...Wow, test your audio system's abilities with that one my friend.
Pyramid is a complete (theme) album and I prefer to listen to from start to finish when I can.
Even the un-remastered CD sounds incredible.
One of the greatest recordings of all time. A desert island disc without question.

This is a beautiful work. Intelligent and full of mystery. It wears it's many influences on it's sleeve, Beatles, Floyd and Moody Blues to name a few.Published on Nov. 30 2001 by KSG
