Album Review

John Haight [sonic-recreation.com]

Planet P Project is the eponymous release by Tony Carey's alter-ego. Known primarily for the tracks "First Day Of Summer" and "A Fine, Fine Day" from his "Some Tough City" album that came out a year later, Tony chooses to take a more theatrical bent on current events than most of his contemporaries, using this pseudonym to make the drama all that much more enigmatic. While the track "Why Me?" did get a fair amount of rotation on MTV when it was released, you won't find a cadre of hits here. In fact, this isn't a singles album. It is meant to be heard in sequence from start to finish, telling the story of the long lost, last survivor of planet Earth. His home, being destroyed by the warmongering factions, is light years behind him, as this lone survivor ventures out to make a new world into a paradise (with the help of an "alien?" woman [Adam And Eve]), as he deals with issues of isolationism, alienation and lonliness. Overall, this album is a stupendous achievement in both sound and thought, paving the way for the even more ambitious "Pink World" which would be released a year later.

Album Review

Tom Demalon [allmusic.com]

Still a one-man show, Tony Carey, under the banner of Planet P Project, again teamed with producer Peter Hauke for this 1984 follow-up to the self-titled debut of the prior year. It's a sprawling, ambitious double album with a sketchy plot line revolving around Artimus, a boy who doesn't speak, and a Cold War-inspired Armageddon. Like it's predecessor, the music features a heavy emphasis on synthesizers, although there's also a good dose of guitar, giving it appeal to rock fans. Carey infuses Pink World with solid melodies, and there's plenty to enjoy on tracks like the surging title cut, the brooding ''What I See,'' and the folk-tinged ''A Boy Who Can't Talk.'' And, to his credit, despite the somewhat cumbersome premise, Carey manages to keep it all from getting too pretentious. Pink World is a curiously interesting work that has managed to achieve a certain cult status.

Planet P Project's Biography

Tom Demalon [allmusic.com]

Following a stint playing keyboards for Rainbow in the '70s, Californian Tony Carey relocated to Germany, continuing his musical career as a solo artist. He managed to achieve some chart success in the early '80s with songs like "I Won't Be Home Tonight," "A Fine, Fine Day," and "The First Day of Summer." Carey had also formed a creative union with German producer Peter Hauke under the moniker Planet P Project, with Carey handling all of the writing and most of the instrumental duties. Their eponymous 1983 debut was defined by the synthesizer-laden style of the day with a nod to the progressive rock of the prior decade. With heavy exposure of the accompanying video on MTV, the single "Why Me?" clicked at album rock outlets, climbing into the Top Ten while it also managed to crossover over onto the pop charts. Another track, "Static," also received enough airplay to be a moderate AOR hit. The act's next release was even more ambitious, a double album entitled Pink World, which was released in the fall of 1984. A sprawling concept album, Pink World, was musically a continuation of Planet P Project and touched on similar themes reflecting the Cold War paranoia of the mid-'80s. It failed to achieve the attention of the prior record, although the track "What I See" managed to make a slight impact on radio. With Pink World having been eclipsed by the success of his 1984 solo album Some Tough City, which had scored two Top 40 singles in "A Fine, Fine Day" and "The First Day of Summer," Carey shelved Planet P Project.
