According to the Random House Dictionary, "stereotomy" is the technique of cutting solids, as stones, to specified forms and dimensions. On their album Stereotomy, The Alan Parsons Project paints a portrait of a man who has been cut into a specific shape according to the demands of society, as he thirsts after the "Limelight" but is consigned to "Urbania" and relies on "Beaujolais" to ease the pain. Most of the album is devoted to long, sweeping instrumental passages which makes the album one of the group's most ambitious records, but not one of their most accessible. ~ Daevid Jehnzen
