5.0 out of 5 stars What an album! June 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I remember hearing part of this album back in the 80's, from a friend who had the pink LP. I guess I wasn't in the mood to hear it then. Things have changed, and I'm sure glad that I picked this CD up.
Pink World was created by the Planet P Project, but the driving force behind this group is actually Tony Carey, whose prior claim to fame was being the keyboardist for Rainbow. Thank God Carey struck out on his own. Most of the instruments on Pink World are played by Carey. Carey also wrote the lyrics and arrangements for the album. Impressive. And you'll be impressed when you give this CD a listen.
Pink World is a concept album about a boy named Artemis who has psychic powers and eventually becomes a messiah. All of this occurs against the backdrop of the Cold War and nuclear annihilation. While this might sound trite, I assure you it isn't.
The album is laid out with longer tracks separated by very short bursts of music, a tactic that Pink Floyd has used to great effect. This isn't the only similarity of this album to Pink Floyd. Some of the songs have a very definite Floyd sound, such as "A Boy Who Can't Talk," in which Carey certainly affects the pained vocal strains of Roger Waters. This similarity isn't a bad thing, and it isn't overpowering.
Other tracks that stand out are, "To Live Forever," as well as "Pink World" and "Power". The whole album is great, and I can't believe I ignored this as long as I did. I would say run, don't walk, to get this CD. It needs to have a U.S. reissue.
If Mr. Carey reads this review, I live near Boystown, Nebraska. Since you have an album entitled, "The Boystown Tapes", wouldn't this be a great place to hold a concert?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Concept Album June 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1984, multi-talented singer/songwriter/musician Tony Carey released his second album under the group name Planet P Project, "Pink World," a sprawling concept album about a mysterious young boy named Artemus who saves the human race (or, at least, a large chunk of it) from a nuclear holocaust. Comparisons between this album and Pink Floyd's classic epic "The Wall" are inevitable, as "Pink World" has a very Floydian/"Wall" feel to it in both it's sound and structure (and even the acoustic number "A Boy Who Can't Talk" sounds like a total re-working of the acoustic Floyd favorite from "The Wall," "Mother"). But make no mistake, "Pink World" IS a phenomenal album, with an intriguing story, powerful, dramatic music, and outstanding production. Many of the album's songs and soundbites linger in the mind long afterwards, such as "To Live Forever," the title song, "What I See," "Power," "Behind The Barrier," "In The Zone," the instrumental "March Of The Artemites," "One Star Falling," "Baby's At The Door," and the already-mentioned "A Boy Who Can't Talk." This is truly wonderful progressive rock from beginning to end.My only disappointment with the CD edition of "Pink World" is that there's no lyric sheet in the booklet. Some parts of the plot are still a little bit unclear to me, such as the question of just who IS little Artemus, where did he come from, and where does he go to at the album's end? So, a complete set of lyrics would've been *most* appreciated! Still, there's no denying the tremendous acheivement that "Pink World" is. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The best rock opera ever December 5, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Many of the reviewers here have compared "Pink World" to "The Wall" and the work of Yes and The Who. Well, in my opinion, "Pink World" is miles above any of that work. Granted, Pink Floyd and the others put out some great albums, but Tony Carey's work is, for me, much more enjoyable to listen to. The music is tighter, more meaningful. Songs like "The Stranger", "What I See", "A Boy Who Can't Talk", "One Star Falling" and "Baby's at the Door" are unrecognized classics, as far as I am concerned. Maybe it's the imagery or the story of Artemis, the protagonist of the story chronicled in "Pink World". Anyway, a great album--easily worth five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Plain the Best I've Ever Heard. September 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Apologies to Pete Townshend, but this album is the definitive rock opera. The story is somewhat quirky, pulling in images diverse as Orwell's 1984, The Day After (remember that scary nuclear holocaust TV-movie?), and others to create an aural landscape rich in detail. Each song is a fascinating story by itself, but Tony Carey draws them together to form a complex and winding tale that never bores, even after repeated listening.
The musicianship is incredibly nuanced and best compared to the first Boston album in terms of the meticulous arrangements. It's hard to believe that the lion's share of the work here was done by one person. Why isn't Tony Carey world-famous? Don't even get me started....just buy this CD, play it, and you'll be a believer too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding trip to Another World May 9, 2005
By Cole K
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Spellbinding is the best way to describe Pink World and Planet P. The time and effort as well as the number of reviews listed for this largely unknown album is a testament to the overwhelming power of this artwork. Pink World is like one of the stereophonic photographs that most people can't see the hidden image. But for those of us who can, it's so intoxicating you can't stop looking at it.

There are about 5 songs on here that have utterly mezmerized me for 20 years. The Stranger, The Shepherd, Letter from the Shelter, One Star Falling, and Baby's at the Door. I took these five, added in the the many captivating interludes, and combined with my favorite cuts from the original Planet P album and Blue Highway, and this collection has been in my constant rotation since I found it 20 years ago.

Among the beautiful poetry, the insight, the vivid musical landscapes, and the amazingly creative and unique music of Planet P, one thing that stands out to me is the unusual meter drumbeats. Very otherworldly! Where does he get this stuff?! Tony Carey clearly is an alien.

If you are a true believer and haven't heard it, get Blue Highway. It is the "Final Cut" of PW, and clearly Tony's third best album (I have them all).
