Camel and Spanish prog fans rejoice. Here is a very impressive modern progressive band from Spain. Pi2 plays a very sophisticated, classy and contemporary brand of symphonic instrumental progressive rock. Most of the seven featured songs are packed FULL with extremely beautiful melodies driven by deftly played acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards (synth, organ and piano) and clarinet. The music is not overly complex but definitely progressive. Fans of lush symphonic prog and mid-tempo instrumental guitar/keyboard melodies will really enjoy this CD. This music was released privately in 1998 but Musea has thankfully just recently released it worldwide (David C./Progarchives).
