Planetarium — Infinity
(Vinyl Magic VM019CD, 1971/1990, CD)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 1995-07-01
Or is it Infinity – Planetarium? Most sources go with Planetarium being the group yet Vinyl Magic seems to have this listed as Infinity. Either way, this group is certainly lucky to have their album rescued from obscurity anyway. Infinity is a concept album based on something – maybe a person's life or the obvious grander concept of infinity. Using sound effects (that may be responsible for making this reissue sound like it was taken from vinyl) and the occasional welcome Mellotron, this is a pretty good album but lacking some sort of consistency. The music is influenced by the earlier classical progressives – The Nice, The Trip, Le Orme – with an organ base, yet the album isn't that memorable and seems dated when compared to the rest of the bands in this vein. A fair album overall, certainly not essential.
