The Alan Parsons Project - Gaudi mp3 album

Gaudi is the tenth album by The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1987. Gaudi refers to Antoni Gaudí, the Catalan Spanish architect, and the opening track references what is probably his best known building, la Sagrada Família. Closer to Heaven" and "Money Talks" were used in an episode of the third season of the TV series Miami Vice, with "Paseo de Gracia" (even though in Catalan -and officially- the exact name is Passeig de Gràcia) appearing in an episode in the show's fifth season.

Even though 1987's Gaudi was inspired by architect Antonio Gaudi, its songs seem to lack the assertiveness or the instrumental endowments that usually occur within the Alan Parsons Project's work. With a leaner, edgier sound that is best represented on "Standing on Higher Ground," the easiness and touch that should have enveloped this album is noticeably absent. While not a complete failure, the album does reveal some passion with the last track, "Paseo de Graciad," a finely orchestrated instrumental done exquisitely in full Parsons style.

Gaudi is the tenth album by The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1987. This was the final Alan Parsons Project studio album. During the writing of what would have been the followup, Eric Woolfson turned the album into the rock opera eventually released as Freudiana in 1990. Alan Parsons continued as a solo artist in 1993 with Try Anything Once, an album which completes the musical evolution that started with this album.
