Pyramid is the third studio album by British Progressive Rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released on Arista Records in June 1978.

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.

At the time Pyramid was conceived, interests in pyramids and so-called pyramid power was all the rage.

Not only does the album's theme evolve around the mystique of the pyramid, but it also touches on man's fascination with superstition and its powers. The instrumental Voyager opens things up, and its provocative style sets the tone for the album's supernatural mood. The bright-sounding What Goes Up is one of the highlights here, as is The Eagle Will Rise Again, sung by Colin Blunstone. The anxiety-ridden Pyramania enhances the album's concept the best. The lesson-learning Can't Take It With You teaches that our souls are our most important asset, in typical Parsons-type charm.

This Music On Vinyl LP is on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl housed in a Gatefold sleeve, released in 2012 and pressed in Europe.
