Background: Released in 1987, Gaudi was the eleventh and final album by the Alan Parsons Project.
The album reached #57 on the U.S. album chart.
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.
