I Robot is the second studio album by English progressive rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released on 1 June 1977 by Arista Records. The album draws conceptually on author Isaac Asimov's science fiction Robot trilogy, exploring philosophical themes regarding artificial intelligence. It was re-released on vinyl and cassette tape in 1984 and on CD 2007.

Mastered By – Alan Parsons, Dave Donnelly. Producer, Engineer, Liner Notes – Alan Parsons. Reissue Producer – Alan Parsons, Jeff Magid. Reissue Producer, Liner Notes, Executive-Producer, Artwork – Eric Woolfson. Originally released in 1977.

Alan Parsons delivered a detailed blueprint for his Project on their 1975 debut, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, but it was on its 1977 follow-up, I Robot, that the outfit reached its true potential.

The album I Robot to some extent looks at the questions and the extent to which as human being we may or may not be pre-programmed and act in a robotic fashion as well as the dangers of uncontrolled development of artificial intelligence. The song ‘Some Other Time’ came about because when Alan asked Paul McCartney to read a line of poetry for the Tales of Mystery album in return for a favor Alan had done him, Paul’s response had been ‘Some other time Alan, some other time’ and this gave Eric an idea for the song  . Few realize that there were originally two vocalists on this song. Extract 3 from The Alan Parsons Project Audio Guide. AP I talk about our choices of singers. Breakdown – The Choir.
