Norwegian prog-rockers Gazpacho may well have produced the best album of 2010, for which the lead contender had probably been Spock's Beard X until then.

Gazpacho is not nearly as well know as it deserves to be, having forged a sound of its own without really emulating directly any of its elders. It is usually describes as "atmospheric", which barely does it justice. Its sound is distantly related to the almost-prog efforts of Muse or Radiohead but without taking the pop route. It has the inventiveness of Phideaux without being anchored in the progressive rock of previous eras and sometimes comes very close to the Marillion of Marbles, particularly that of The Invisible Man, yet it does not fall for the temptation of anthemic rock and keeps you surprised and interested. Gazpacho combines deceptively simple atmospherics that trace all the way back to Brian Eno, regular guitar-driven flashes of tension, and massive orchestration used sparingly but very effectively. All supporting the wonderfully flexible voice of Jan Henrik Ohme, at the same time fluid and tense, cold and full of emotion, always expressive.

Missa Atropos is a concept album, following a composer withdrawing from the world, in a lighthouse, in order to compose a mass for the greek goddess Atropos, the eldest Fate, she who decides how one dies. Solitude and emotions both mounting towards the composer's master opus. It is very much a fusion of Gazpacho's two previous albums. Of 2007's

All I can say is "phenominal"! What an incredible CD! This is definately some of the best prog I have heard in some time. In some ways it reminds me of Arena's "Cantagion" CD only the vocals are different but very discriptive. At times it also reminds me of some of Marillion's best stuff. The music has such great beauty and power. It has wonderful artwork that graces the cover and booklet. I highly recommend this for all prog fans. You won't be disappointed.

I don't know what it is. Every single Gazpacho album has left me with, initially, a less than stellar impression. It's quite bewildering how somehting can be so mild and then, like flipping a light switch, it hits me. This is album is glorious. I was mildly disappointed, and then, BAM! Masterpiece! Perhaps its this bands complexity that takes me awhile to digest, I don't know. I can easily pick this album up, any day of the week, any time of day, and listen to it. It's gloomy and powerful. It is, to me, the essence of music. I can't compare this to anything else. Not in the sense that its so much better than anyhting, but in that it is different. Its pure creativity. Thank you Gazpacho. I have already pre-ordered Demon!

I'm very impressed with this band and another great disc of songs. If your looking for quick, easy four minute songs, don't bother. But if your looking for an album you can sit down and listen to from start to finish with your eyes closed, this is it! A great disc if you love prog. I'll have to thank Marillion for turning me on to this band.

I have been playing once and again their album "Tick Tock", which was also rated with five stars by me. And I said in my review of that marvelous album that Gazpacho was a band to be watched. I was glad to try their last work, "Missa Atropos", and I was not disappointed. Quite the contrary, Gazpacho has proved with this output that they are one of the finest bands in the art-prog-rock scenario. Missa Atropos is a long symphonic suite of 13 tracks roughly divided in three parts of melodic and atmospheric rock which serves as a vehicle of quite stunning surrealist lyrics. Other reviewer has already described in detail the story depicted by these lyrics, so I will skip this part. I just want to invite you all to listen carefully to this album in order to share the sweet feeling of melancholy that, from my point of view, the band wants us to appreciate in their music, this is a feeling that speaks to us all about the sadness and incertitude that permeates humanity in current times. Do not miss this one!
