Profil - For You (1982)
The one and only album from this German band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and percussion.
Profil is a very obscure band and nothing is really known about them. But they released this album on an obscure label and that is all we know.
The music is wholly instrumental.
Which in 1982 was a commercial suicide and I would very surprised if this album sold more than a couple of hundred copies. My guess is that there are some boxes of unsold LPs somewhere on a loft or in a cellar in Germany.
The music is somewhere between Camel, Eloy, SBB, fusion and the krautrock scene.
This thirty-six minutes long album has a good bass and synths sound. That is the best about this album.
There are some decent guitar solos too on this album.
There is not much of any interest on this album. It is not a bad album and it would have got some fans if released today. It is a decent album though which will remain an obscure album until the end of time.
