Background: Released in 1978, Pyramid was the third album by the Alan Parsons Project. The LP reached #26 on the U.S. charts. The album’s only charting single was “What Goes Up,” which reached #87 on the U.S. singles chart.
Even with six different vocalists lending their talents to the album, Pyramid still remains an average bit of material from the Alan Parsons Project. Not only does the album’s theme evolve around the mystique of the pyramid, but it also touches on man’s fascination with superstition and its powers. The instrumental “Voyager” opens things up, and its provocative style sets the tone for the album’s supernatural mood….While not a stellar album, Pyramid completes the task of musically explaining its concept. Its short but slightly compelling nature grows after a few listens, but the album itself isn’t a necessity.
