    Oh yeah! Nice to revisit these albums after quite some time. Alan Parsons is IMO truly a genius. His recordings are well mixed! Such detail, and what a soundstage! :smile:

    His music does sound especially good on Polk Audio speakers.

    When I first got my first Polks, the Monitor 10's with peerless tweeters, I was listening to Alan Parsons quite often. When I heard Alan on those 10's, my musical journey was kicked in its butt BIG TIME. I had to re-listen to ALL my favorites again.

    There was just something special about that sound.

    Very rare Alan Parsons release. A Valid Path. From what I've been able to learn, released in Europe in CD and Dual Disc format. Playing from Amazon Music right now, really digging it!

    I'm pretty sure I found this album/CD at good will years ago. Or did I discover it existed and ordered it from the WEB? ;):)B)
    Nice speaker dynamics test track here for sure.

    Ugh! Day off today in honor of Veteran's Day, but have to prep for work tomorrow. At least I've got Heart playing. From a 5 CD boxed set. This album has a rendition of Stairway to Heaven on it!

    Picked this up at the HPB sale today, for $2.49. They had a lot of new 180G vinyl in stock @ $13.99 most was on the Wax Time label. I've resisted buying any so far. Anyone have any experience with the Wax Time pressings, good or bad? Thanks.
