Planet P Project, known originally as simply Planet P, is the studio brainchild of producer Peter Hauke, and an American expatriate living in Germany, Tony Carey, who had played for a while with Rainbow. Carey wrote all of the songs and played various instruments on the band's 1983 debut album Planet P Project. The music is layered in synthesizers and has a decidedly dated feel to it, while Carey's lyrics tend toward bleak expressions of isolation. The album did spawn a modest radio hit in the thumping "Why Me?," which even made inroads at Top 40. Nothing too special going on here, although Carey does exhibit a good sense of melody on tracks like the propulsive, delusion-of-grandeur tale in "King for a Day" and the dreamy "I Won't Wake Up."

You know I bought this album many years ago for one song,the only one that ever made it on the airways in the USA WHY ME? .Some months later I finally listened to the rest of it and could not believe what I was missing.Then I found out about the 2nd album a double CD called PINK WORLD.Also this was incredible.So to this day not many people know who this group is or how good the music is.WELL THATS TOO BAD FOR THEM.What's even more incredible that of these two excellent albums that only one song made it on air.You know I wonder if anybody knows that on the tape and Cd there are two songs not included on the original vinyl copy? Well now we all do.
