5 stars If someone ever tells you that this is not a good record, he's probably a soulless creature from outer space! Things are really simple my friends, Gazpacho's ''Demon'' is a work of absolute, crystal clear, breath taking beauty. It's not about a specific genre or scene, this band firstly serves art as a whole. It reminds me very much of the aesthetics of a Tornatore film, where art and melancholy are always the main characters. One may wonder: is it prog? Well, don't expect complex parts, weird grooves or solos here. You may find a distant relation with the melodic side of Porcupine tree, Marillion or Radiohead but worry not, Gazpacho is one of a kind. There is a prog mentality, concerning very lengthy compositions and richful, amazing arrangements. Many instruments are used (violins, piano, choirs, accordions, mandolins, whatever!), only to emphasize the poetic tale that's being narrated. Musicianship is excellent, every one plays like drawing, like adding colours and expression to a wonderful painting. Just sit back and enjoy ''Demon''. Four dramatic musical odysseys, guided by Ohme's sentimental voice (a mix of Yorke, Wilson, Mercury and Jeff Buckley) will make you imagine, feel, weep and dream like you are witnessing a perfect theatrical play. You will not be rewarded only if you don't like mid tempo, atmospheric, melodic music. I' m feeling enchanted once again by a Norwegian band, this will definitely be one of my 2-3 favorites for 2014. Waiting to see how many people will recognize Gazpacho's brilliance. Very easy five stars, friends!
