Numbered, limited edition with gatefold jacket
180-gram double LP, 45 RPM
I Robot delves into themes of artificial intelligence and technology
Audiophiles need no introduction to the Alan Parsons Project's I Robot. Engineered by Parsons after he performed the same duties on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, the 1977 record reigns as a disc whose taut bass, crisp highs, clean production, and seemingly limitless dynamic range are matched only by the sensational prog-rock fare helmed by the keyboardist. Not surprisingly, it's been issued multiple times. Can it be improved? Relish Mobile Fidelity's stupendous-sounding 180-gram 45 RPM 2LP set and the question becomes irrelevant.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, and afforded the luxurious groove space of a 45 RPM LP, I Robot comes to life like never before on this numbered limited-edition reissue. Boasting immaculate highs and lows, generous spaciousness, and see-through transparency that takes you into the studio with Parsons and creative partner Eric Woolfson at Abbey Road, this super-clean edition has been lovingly restored by Mobile Fidelity engineers with the intention of demonstrating the full-range capabilities of the world's best stereo systems. Put simply, there's more music, more information, more detail, more nuance, more everything.
