"Eve" is a progressive rock album by The Alan Parsons Project. It was released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). Along with "Pyramid", it is widely regarded as a mediocre album between 1977's "I Robot" and the Project's successes of the 1980's. "Eve"'s focus is a woman and her effect on men, and it is notable as the only Project album to feature female lead vocalists (Clare Torry and Lesley Duncan). Alan had worked with Clare on Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon". The opening instrumental "Lucifer" and the poppy "Damned If I Do" were both minor hits.
