The little-known Gazpacho, from Norway, produced the finest album of 2007 with "Night".
The recurring rhythm, which ebbs and flows through the entire album, has the effect of masking the complexities going on here. With each listen I find more and more to like - the true hallmark of any great music.
After more than a year with this, the album is like an old friend. I can always rely on it to give me a little thrill, with a hint of melancholy.

Do yourself a favor and listen loud with the lights off, on a good clear night.

The Night should appeal to many lovers of highly structured beautiful rock music of the Radiohead / Porcupine Tree softer territory. If you have not listened to the music of Gazpacho yet - you might as well start here. I am sure not everyone will agree with me but it seems to me that Firebird (2005) was the first album of their developed Gazpacho style. Both earlier Bravo (2003) and When Earth Let's Go (2004) with previous drummer and bass player were their battlefield of chaos, trial, and error, ending in changes and in development of a very characteristic uniform energy. It seems that major changes took place within the heart of Gazpacho, their brilliant vocalist Jan Henrik Ohme. His vocal became powerful and unique and lyrics of Gazpacho became quite poetic and to me in Night they are the most beautiful and cohesive.

To me the difference between Firebird and Night has something of a day and night in it. Night is dreamier, its beauty placed further away from the clear and embracing the subconscious levels. It is a much stronger album overall and perhaps their strongest to date (I have not listened to Missa Atropos yet). There are many differences between 2008's Night and following it 2009's Tick Tock. I feel like Tick Tock contains more hauntingly beautiful passages of dramatic vocal lines perhaps, but the overall atmosphere of Night is more cohesive and to me more enjoyable. It is a conceptual album in which the typical Gazpacho dream is perhaps better defined. This is their most even album as well, in my eyes. If you are looking for best songs here, that will not be an easy choice and most likely the list would look different for most of us.

These little known Norwegians have created a complete madman with this disk aptly titled 'Night'. Its shocking how little known they are. Night is a concept album beautifully broken down into sonically textured layers that flows evenly into an abyss of light melancholy. The musical arrangements are magical. Every note played has carefully earned it's place in this masterpiece. This is one of my favorite albums in terms of production along with Albums like Tool's Lateralus and Pain of Salvation's Remedy Lane. This is an audiophile's dream come true. The amount of attention to detail paid here is crazy.. A must have for anyone who pays serious attention to his music.

I was looking for new music and found a reference to Gazpacho. I came to Amazon and saw that this album was only $5. Based on the price I felt like there was not much to lose. It's the best $5 I've ever spent on music. Five star reviews are thrown around fairly lightly, but here is an album that absolutely truly deserves five stars. This is a true masterpiece of music. As is often true with music of this type, it takes quite a few listens to really catch on to the rhythms, the lyrics, and the nuances. For those who are patient, this music pays off in a big way. This is one of the best recordings I have ever heard in my 40 years of listening.

The musical styles found throughout the record are amazing - progressive, middle eastern, classical, celtic, gospel. These are all brought together to create music that is stunningly beautiful. Put on the headphones or turn on the stereo, lay back, and listen to each note and each word. It will grab you and not let go. If you love music, of any type, get this record, be patient and you will be rewarded. (And then buy Tick Tock for another experience. Amissa Atropos is also an amazing record although it is missing the different musical styles and intricate rhythms of Night and Tick Tock.) All the best music seems to come out of Europe these days and this band from Norway has just about topped them all.

Gazpacho I'm finding are a band which revel in playing the subtle complexities - you wont find a Dream Theater type technical showcase here. Instead, you get moods and built up melodies against a backdrop of nicely placed intricacies of rhythm and tone. The vocals are probably the quirkiest thing about the material - plaintive and almost delicate, graceing the music that pillows it so well but neither overpower each other - rather they complement and support throughout. Its great music for long car trips, listening parties, goth lovemaking sessions, etc...

Its a great addition to anyone's collection regardless of the genre you are a fan of. I would rank it up there with David Sylvian's "Gone to Earth" in terms of desert island list.
