The Best of the Alan Parsons Project, Vol. 2 typically picks up where its predecessor left off. With 11 tracks covering seven albums, including Gaudi, Stereotomy, and Vulture Culture, the songs here are a tad weaker than those on the first collection, since some of the albums that these songs originate from were not of this band's finest caliber. The highlights here include both "Prime Time" and "Don't Answer Me" from Ammonia Avenue, and the provocative instrumental "I Robot," the only non-vocal track on the album. All of the selections on this package convey their purpose much better within their former albums, since each song is a link in the album's conceptual chain. Alone, these songs do harbor some substance, like the delicate "Days Are Numbers (The Traveller)" and the rocking "Stereotomy." Since Parsons' real genius shines on his full-length pieces, only a sampling of the Alan Parsons Project's musical flair can be distinguished by their separate selections. Sadly omitted from both volumes is any material from the incredible Tales of Mystery and Imagination album, as well as "Winding Me Up" or "You Lie Down With Dogs" from Eve. Other questionable exclusions include "Breakdown," "If I Could Change Your Mind," and "Mammagamma," which are all worthy candidates for a best-of collection. If The Best of the Alan Parsons Project, Vol. 2 is sought after, then Vol. 1 should be owned as well.
