Prog Reviewer
3 stars SBB was one of the big-time prog acts to come out of communist-era Poland. They backed up one of Poland's biggest pop figures, Czeslaw Niemen (who, by that point, was pursuing a jazz-influenced type of prog rock) in 1972. This album, released at the end of 1978, Welcome finds the band pursuing a more typical brand of prog rock, and they had the benefit of recording in West Germany, so you obviously got a better production than what you usually get east of the Iron Curtain (many Eastern European albums from the communist-era had rather lousy production). But unfortunately, several of the songs go nowhere and I find a bit boring. "Rainbow Man" is actually a pretty decent and catchy song. I hadn't heard any of their other albums, so I can't judge their entire catalog just by this woefully uneven album.
