Great 21st century album with top song 'We Play The Game',
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Valid Path (Audio CD)
Finally a new album of my hero of modern music times. A Valid Path is a brilliant album. Not everybody will probably like it, but I do. You will find some songs on the album, that are more or less in the old Alan Parsons Project style. One of them is 'We Play The Game' (featuring The Crystal Method; lead vocal: Alan Parsons himself). This should be the single in my opinion. I think it is a much better song than 'More Lost Without You': also good, but not special. Furthermore it is great to hear David Pack back on one of the best songs of the album 'You Can Run'.
Furtermore the album contains 3 make overs of earlier songs: 'Return To Tungaska', with David Gilmour on guitar, is a make over of 'Antarctica' (of the Out Of Order-soundtrack); 'Mammagamma' (of the Eye In The Sky Album) is restyled; 'A Recurring Dream Within A Dream' (of the magical Tales Of Mystery And Imagination) is a modern composite of two works 'A Dream Within A Dream' and 'The Raven'. Alan Parsons has also written with many others great instrumentals such as 'L'Arc en Ciel' and 'Chomolunga'.
Even if you do not recognize the Parsons or APP sounds immediately, try to listen to it several times and then you will come to the conclusion, that it is still the fascinating composer and producer, Alan Parsons. The only difference is, he has now composed and produced music of the 21st century. Hopefully a 5.1 surround sound version will be released as soon as possible! Then I will like the album even more...
