2 stars The third album of North-American band PANGAEA "Wellcome to the Theather", shows a strong influence of ASIA first albuns and by consequence of masters of prog rock like YES, E L & Palmer and KING CRIMSON (mainly this two first ) . However, "Wellcome to the Theather" is one album where in spite the quality of musicians, the final result don't express this quality nor in term of creativity and so minus in sounds like a re-creation of the above mentioned bands. In fact I consider a weak album, with a few good moments. The biggest sin of the band is a very repetitive rhythm in almost all tracks and the arrangements based in a trivial chords sequence... leaving aside the sophisticated melodies which is characteristic of a good prog rock music. I detach some few moments: track 4 'Ride It Easy " due the solo duet between guitar and keyboards, track 6 "The Fall Of Rome" ( the main theme reminds me "Cutting it Fine" by ASIA) with a interruption of the repetitive rhythm by a bluesy guitar solo and last track "Nightmare" only because is very different of majority of tracks and recalls KING CRIMSON. My rate is only 2 stars !!!
