The Alan Parsons Project – Ammonia Avenue
Ammonia Avenue is one of the most commercially successful albums by the British band The Alan Parsons Project and was released on February 7, 1984.
The first single was Don’t Answer Me. Prime Time, the second single, made it into the top 40 in the USA.
Music videos were produced for Don’t Answer Me and Prime Time in 1984, the former with animations by Michael William Kaluta.
Don’t Answer Me was also the first music video ever to be animated throughout.
The title Ammonia Avenue was inspired by Eric Woolfson's visit to Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in Billingham, where the first thing he saw wasn't people or trees, but a street with miles of pipes and a sign saying ammonia Avenue was read.
The album puts its conceptual emphasis on the possible misunderstandings of industrial-scientific developments from the point of view of the general population as well as on the lack of understanding that this is given from the scientific side.
