Style: Hard Rock / Melodic Metal
Release date: May 21st 2010

This is the third Pangea album, and one that originally should have followed "Manchild" (1997). Pangea had high hopes for this album and took a chance and made an expensive album just to find out that no label were willing to release the album. And more bad luck followed when the studio where they recorded the album suddenly closed, and they only managed to save the drums, percussions and vocals from back-ups. The band never really recovered from this and laid low and Torben Lysholm (Vocals and guitars) finally left the band in 2004. Jan Engstrøm (Bass) and Tony Olson (Drums and percussions) searched long and hard for a replacement, but found no one and finally called it quits in 2008.

They did however re-group later on in 2008 and decided to finish their third album, the result is "Retrospectular" and musically we are smack down in the 90s hard rock and melodic metal world. Pangea is situated right between two chairs; on one side Extreme and on the other Mr. Big; well played hard rock with plenty of fine guitar work and catchy choruses is the name of the game, and the outcome is a good album and it should appeal to fans of the above mentioned bands.
