Band Name The Alan Parsons Project. Released date June 1978. 1. Voyager 3. The Eagle Will Rise Again. 5. Can't Take It with You. 6. In the Lap of the Gods. 8. Hyper-Gamma-Spaces.

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. The bright-sounding "What Goes Up" is one of the highlights here, as is "The Eagle Will Rise Again," sung by Colin Blunstone.
