2 stars It's been a long time coming --I'm giving up on Gazpacho.

I became a huge fan of this band when I heard Night, just before their just as excellent Tick Tock came out. Unfortunately, their last few releases haven't been on par with either Night, Tick Tock or March of Ghosts. This is a shame because this band was so promising back in the noughties.

If you've heard anything they've done since March of Ghosts, there's nothing new for you here. Maybe one song'll stick with you for a day, maybe you'll be impressed by the choir section. Other than that, give this one a pass.

If you haven't heard Gazpacho before, give this one a pass anyway. This won't make you into a fan: it's plodding, lacks highlights and melodies, the structures are muddy and, as syrupy as the man's vocals are, you might even find yourself wishing he would shut up and let the music do the talking. Try Night or Tick Tock instead.

Demon, Molok and Soyuz were all mediocre releases lacking in musical inspiration. I couldn't help but keep a candle lit for these guys given the promise of their previous albums; however, that candle has been extinguished by Fireworker.
