Don't answer me

Eric Woolfson, co-founder and frequent lead singer of the Alan Parsons Project, died today at the age of 64. He will be sorely missed: APP was one of my favourite light prog bands of the seventies and early eighties. By 1984, with the release of the album Ammonia Avenue, you would be hard pressed to find prog elements remaining in their work. This album is still of high quality though, with excellent melodies. The single Don't answer me, convincingly sung by the now late Eric Woolfson, stands out as one of their best songs in their long career. Rest in Peace.
Art Rock score: 9/10 (very strong song, one of 650 best songs of all time)
