Ammonia Avenue is the seventh studio album by British Progressive Rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released via Arista Records in December 1983.

The Alan Parsons Project were active between 1975 and 1990, consisting of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson surrounded by a varying number of session musicians and some relatively consistent band members such as guitarist Ian Bairnson, bassist and vocalist David Paton, drummer Stuart Elliott, and vocalist Lenny Zakatek.

Behind the revolving line-up and the regular sidemen, the true core of the Project was the duo of Parsons and Woolfson. Woolfson was a songwriter by profession, but also a composer and pianist. Almost all songs on the band's albums are credited to Parsons/Woolfson. Bairnson and Elliott would continue to collaborate on Parsons’ solo albums, and contribute significantly to the songwriting.

The Project’s albums while not necessarily concept albums were based on individual themes.

The title Ammonia Avenue was inspired by name of the main ‘street’ in a large chemical industrial plant where there were no trees or people to be seen, merely miles of pipes. The album focused on the possible misunderstanding of industrial scientific developments from a public perspective and a lack of understanding of the public from a scientific perspective.      

Ammonia Avenue is one of the band's biggest-selling albums reaching the Top 10 in numerous countries.

Don’t Answer Me was the lead single, reaching the Top 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Mainstream Rock Tracks charts as well as the fourth position on the Adult contemporary chart.

Prime Time was a follow-up release that fared well in the top 40. Since The Last Goodbye was a minor hit. The promotional video for Don't Answer Me was an animated video, the first of its kind, and was nominated in the first annual MTV awards.

This is a Music On Vinyl 180 Gram Audiophile 2012 Reissue with a Colour Insert with Lyrics and Credits, pressed in Europe.
