An interesting band name for a great band. Pangea have this distinctive American-Prog sound. A sound we rarely hear anymore.
The album was produced by Robert Berry, so that’s also a great plus. Robert Berry played with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer of ELP on an album called To the Power of Three, by their band 3. He also replaced Steve Hackett in GTR. He also has a prolific solo career.
So the production of the album is brilliantly executed.
This is a band that goes into many mood changes and tempo changes throughout. Although a pain for a drummer, the results are always impressive. And they are too, on this album.
The sound is interesting and unique from beginning to end. The White Shaman being perhaps the most interesting song. It relies heavily on traditional North American Indian music (in the drums especially) without actually sounding like an Indian song.
A very good album (beautiful artwork, too) which flows well throughout.
