Gaudi is the tenth and final album by British Progressive Rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released in January 1987 by Arista Records.

Inspired by the life and work of the great Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi, whose obsession with his work ruled out the possibility of a normal family life. Ironically, his greatest work was a cathedral dedicated to the holy family, La Sagrada Familia. The album is inspired by the work/life balance that we all face.

The lengthy and heavily orchestrated La Sagreda Familia kicks off the album in dramatic style. The track is majestic, uplifting and well structured with killer melodies and wonderful vocals by John MilesToo Late is an uptempo song with clear guitar work, strong lead break and great vocals from Lenny Zakatek.

Closer To Heaven is a melancholic Eric Woolfson composition with his gentle airy vocals. The track is driven by keyboards, has a slow building beat, monotone bass line and a wonderful saxophone solo. Standing On Higher Ground is pop radio friendly with a great guitar solo. Money Talks is nice and catchy, has a quirky guitar motif driving it, good vocals again from John Miles.

Inside Looking Out returns to Woolfson's airy vocals and very soft musicianship. It is a real smooth composition, dreamy and ambient with subtle vocals over gentle music; one you can fall asleep to for sure. It even has some interesting dialogue voices over an acoustic layer.

The album closes with Paseo De Gracia, an instrumental to bid the band farewell. As the last APP album Gaudi is a worthwhile closing album for the band.

This is a Music On Vinyl 2013 reissue on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl with a Printed Insert with Lyrics & Credits, pressed in Europe.
