Try Anything Once is the first solo album of Progressive Rock musician Alan Parsons, originally released in October 1993 by Arista Records.

Try Anything Once is made up of beautifully mastered songs that carry their own charisma, thanks to the numerous vocalists that contribute throughout the album. No single track rises from among the others, and the final product actually makes this album work. Singers such as David Pack (Ambrosia), Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band), Eric Stewart (10cc), and Jacqui Copland (Duran Duran) present each tune with refreshing differentiation and style.

Unlike the Alan Parsons Project albums there is no overall concept on Try Anything Once, but many of the songs touch on religion and the hope of an afterlife, like Wine From The Water and Turn It Up.

Each song carries its weight with either rich instrumentation or delicate lyrics, and Parsons’ use of puzzling metaphors once again makes for an intriguing collection of songs.

The four instrumentals - Dreamscape, Breakaway, Jigue, and Re-Jigue - add wonderment and a classical savoir faire to the album, with Re-Jigue benefitting from the Philharmonia Orchestra.

An element of wonder and fascination hovers above songs like The Three Of Me and Mr. Time, and the cloudiness and uncertainty of Parsons’ themes create an attraction to his thought-provoking words. Since his message is left for the listener to contemplate, Try Anything Once breeds its own allure and intricacies. The absence of the word "Project" at the end of his name makes no difference, because the music and the atmosphere on this album harbor the same mysterious effects as when it was included.
