5 stars After imo very succesful album Night I was pretty much excited to hear their next work, so finally here it is. So for starters let me introduce you to GAZPACHO's music, at the begging the marillion-like albums era, which most of them was decent at best, listenable but nothing really special with few standout tracks on each album but I consider Bravo to be most enjoyable. Then a huge surprise after few spins of 2007 release Night, really catchy progressive rock with some post-rock overtones and I must admit this album just doesn't get old at all for me. Getting to the point which is "Tick Tock": First song is something different form the rest of the tracks, reminding me kinda of MUSE, but not in a bad way actually. Mostly bass-driven, energetic and with loud electric guitar. Good way to start an album, but it just gets better as the album progresses. Next we have "The Walk" divided into two parts, my favourite of the album. While being more soft prog rock here they create an interesting atmosphere and still remain catchy in all aspects: vocals, bass, acoustic guitars and some violins at the end of part 1. The title track is divided into 3 parts, most of the time pretty similar to The Walk. Nothing wrong with that of course when songwriting continue to be flawless, my personal favuorite would be part 2. Closing track Winter Is Never is the shortest track, counting at 4.55, with some enjoyable vocal melodies and quite dark feeling brings us to the end. Every music fan should hear this release, as well as its predecessor I consider it as a masterpiecie of progressive music from beginning to the very end. Solid songwriting, tasteful atmospherics, great vocals, all those things just make this album a candidate for this years best. As it is just my subjective opinion, just give this one a try (by that i mean at least few listens) and experience it yourself. Carnivale
