Eve is the fourth studio album by English rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released on 27 August 1979 by Arista Records. The album's focus is on the strengths and characteristics of women, and the problems they face in the world of men. It had originally been intended to focus on "great women in history", but evolved into a wider concept. It features several songs from a misogynist point of view.

Produced by Alan Parsons Executive Producer – Eric Woolfson Engineer – Alan Parsons Assistant Engineers – Patrick Jauneaud at Super Bear, Dave Siddle at Arco Recorded at Super Bear Studio, Berre-Les-Alpes, France, Orchestra and Choir Recording at Arco Studio, Munich, Germany The Orchestra of the Munich Chamber Opera care of Eberhard Schoener. As many Project aficionados will know, a largely experimental album entitled ‘The Sicilian Defence’ was recorded at the same time as EVE. This work became the subject of a major disagreement with the record company and was shelved.

La temática se centra en aspectos particularmente humanos, como las relaciones afectivas hombre-mujer (If I Could Change Your Mind), las fortalezas y fe ocultas del hombre (Don't Hold Me Back) y la esperanza y el romanticismo, aspectos tradicionalmente ajenos a la temática de la mayoría de las obras de Alan Parsons. Un álbum bastante atípico en comparación al resto de su obra, el cual jamás deja de relucir en sus arreglos y creatividad electrónica (Lucifer, I'd Rather Be a Man)

The album's concept deals with the female's overpowering effect on man. Each song touches on her ability to dissect the male ego, especially through sexual means, originating with Eve's tempting Adam in the beginning of time. Not only does this idea gain strength as the album progresses, but a musical battle of the sexes begins to arise through each song. The gorgeous "You Won't Be There" spotlights man's insecurity. Sung by Dave Townsend, its melodramatic feel sets a perfect tone.
