''Ammonia Avenue'' is one of the most commercially successful albums of The Alan Parsons Project. It was the second of the group's three most accessible albums, beginning with ''Eye in the Sky'' and ending with ''Vulture Culture''. ''Ammonia Avenue'' was originally intended to be released as a double album with ''Vulture Cultures material forming the second record.

The Phil Spector-influenced million selling smash "Don't Answer Me" was ''Ammonia Avenues lead single. "Prime Time" was a follow up release that fared well in the top 40."Since The Last Goodbye" and "You Don't Believe" were also minor hits. Music videos for "Don't Answer Me" and "Prime Time" were produced in 1984, the former with art and animation by MW Kaluta.

The title of the album was inspired by Eric Woolfson's visit to Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in Billingham, England, where the first thing he saw was a street with miles of pipes, no people, no trees and a sign that said 'Ammonia Avenue'. The album focused on the possible misunderstanding of industrial scientific developments from a public perspective and a lack of understanding of the public from a scientific perspective.
