This is part of Arista's Heritage series.
Arista celebrated its 30th anniversary by releasing The Heritage Series, spotlighting the most popular artists on the label. The Alan Parsons Project installment in Master Hits is pretty much a straight hits collection, featuring highlights from their stint at the label. While the Parsons Project was at Arista, they achieved the peak of their popularity with such radio hits as "I Robot," "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You," "Games People Play," "Time," "Ammonia Avenue" and the crossover single "Eye in the Sky." All those songs are here, along with some highlights from their albums, providing a nice retrospective of their time with Arista, which just happened to be the peak of their career. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
