Worth it for the opening cut alone. Remember the Chicago Bulls in Jordan’s heyday? They’d introduce the Bulls with the lights turned out (back before every team did that) and this song, “Sirius,” blaring. Even if you weren’t a fan, you couldn’t help but have goose bumps. But you’ve never heard that tune sound like this!
Alan Parsons, who first took up an apprenticeship as a sound engineer at EMI and was later responsible for several Paul McCartney productions and the Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, drew upon his experience in order to further his solo career. While the co-producer Eric Woolfson wrote the songs, Parsons who had an uncanny feeling for sound conjured up a lush mélange of synthetic and natural sounds.
