5 stars Gazpacho Tick Tock Whether this is a Prog Rock or an Alternative, Art Rock or Post Rock Album, the point is that the Norwegians created a Masterpiece in music. I have been in the desert recently and due to this experience and listening to Tick Tock I have to say, that they perfectly hit the feeling of this surrounding and I can understand how Antoine Saint-Exuperys´ trip through the desert must have been. Gazpacho can create with their music pictures and emotions - something a lot of bands can´t. They are also able to which seems so simple but they aren´t. Seeing them live a few weeks ago proved that more than 100%. What Robert Johansen (Drums) and Kristian Torp (Bass) produces on their instruments, is si mply awesome. Based on this Thomas Andersen (Keys) can put on his sound carpets, Mikael Kromer (Violin, Mandoline) his traditional touch and Jon Arne Vilbo his silent and sometimes powerful guitar riffs. The variations of Jan Henrik Ohmes Voice simply gives the magic on Tick Tock as he has done it already on "Night". An other Aspect is, that you can´t get into the cosmos of Gazpacho, when you do not take the time the music needs to grow. I.e. "The Walk" with it´s 13 minutes of Prog World Music can touch your soul when you let yourself fall into mysterious of the desert which continues with the 22 minutes suite
