Alan Parsons Project is well known for building their albums around certain socio-demographic themes. Stereotomy (1985) deals with the way in which modern society molds the personality. At the time, Stereotomy was one of the first completely digitally recorded pieces of music, sporting a rare 'DDD' code on its first release.
The album is coherently balanced, its synthesized and orchestrated songs completing each another. The high octane "Where's The Walrus?" is a response to 'Mr. Laser Beam', analogy of Mr. Lee Abrams, an American radio personality. He accused the band having gone 'flat' in their last albums: he asked them 'Where's The Walrus?', meaning 'Where are the classic songs like The Beatles' "I Am The Walrus"?'.
The Music On Vinyl reissue of Stereotomy features the original dual coloured sleeve (except for the translucent coloured plastic outer sleeve).
