3 stars "Biomasa" is the second release of this young spanish group. In this work they show their influence by, and admiration for, our legendary "Soft Machine". The cd consists of 8 instrumental themes, with wide and diverse sound elements: keyboards, guitar, trumpet, flugelhorn, fretless bass, drums, tenor saxophone, trombone, and alto saxophone. This "little machine" is now functionning. As the cd advances, it is to be observed that Planeta Imaginario are mastering their music genre. The themes are often very "canterbury" and complex, and the group have obtained a broad and constant variation of sounds. Sometimes the group seems to stumble in the attempt of overcomplicating the music, and leaves you with the sensation of lacking air, whishing that the music would flow more lightly. The difficulty of music is to know how to unite the complicity and the spontaneous, that all is in it´s rightful place and time. But in general the themes of "Biomasa" are well put together, and especially interesting in the development of the solid compositions and the adept solos: "El francotirador de Washington", "Capture" and "Trastornos opticos del oso bipolar". Particularly the guitar has a pleasant sound, and the great agility of the keybord player is heard when playing fender rhodes piano. All in all the group is displaying a good impulse and high intensity in their music.
