APP "Stereotomy" album

The Alan Parsons Project


This album was originally released by Arista Records in 1986. The word Stereotomy comes from Poe's "The Murders in the Rue Morgue". Eric thought that the word itself had quite a rock 'n' roll sound. I'd have to agree.

The title "Where's The Walrus" was influenced by their old friend Mr. Laser Beam. He was commenting on their previous efforts "Ammonia Avenue" and "Vulture Culture" and accused the band as having gone flat. "Where's the Walrus?" he asked, meaning, where are the classic songs like The Beatles' "I am The Walrus". Where is it? On this album.
