3 stars Named after an educational TV show on Spanish television,PLANETA IMAGINARIO are an awesome new band,formed in 1999 in Barcelona by keyboardist Marc Capel.By the rise of the new millenium the band started gigging in various festivals and their sound transformed from the early psychedelic style to jazzy progressive rock with the addition of new musicians.In 2004 they released their debut ''Que me dices?'' on the Galician Margen Label,which experimented with bands with a somewhat groundbreaking sound.

Featuring a really strong brass section of trumpets,trombones and saxes,PLANETA IMAGINARIO deliver great progressive music with a wide spectrum of influences coming from classic prog and jazz to R.I.O,Canterbury prog and avant-garde music.As said,most of the compositions feature very strong brass section parts similar to those offered by bands like UNIVERS ZERO or ART ZOYD with a dark contemporary feeling.Really imaginative music,followed many times by challenging guitar work in a typical jazz/fusion style and alternating between smooth and slow melodic parts and complicated,frenetic interplays.At the later stuff,you'll recognize sounds with a familiar Canterbury feel,while keyboards often lead the way reminding of bands in the style of NIACIN.Definitely it's not the most original work around,but the succesful combination of brass rock and classic prog will leave most of you quite satisfied.A very good release by a band with a bright future,which comes strongly recommended only for those who are after something different and experimental...3,5 stars are a fair rating for this nice work I think...
