4 stars While a pleasant listen, this album needs careful, attentive listening to be truly appreciated--which, then, becomes its downfall: When not listened to carefully, this album can become very boring, the lead singer's voice very tedious and whiney. So: if you have the time, sit down, put on the headphones and enjoy a very well put together album; If you aren't going to be able to concentrate and give it your fullest attention, better to avoid it and wait for time when you can. All songs are good, though the Tick Tock trilogy is my favorite (if you can listen to it in its entirety). Nice subtle effects and shifts in sound and mood, even if the vocals get a little monotonous. Not the highs of "Night," but not the lows either. Tough for me to rate. 3.5 stars would be most accurate.

2015 edit: This album was my introduction to Gazpacho. It has grown quite a bit on me over the years. As slow and delicate is the progress through this album, I do find myself listening start to finish and thoroughly enjoying the subtle surprises as they reveal themselves. Therefore, I am reconsidering my rating and elevating Tick Tock to four stars. It is one of the two Gazpacho albums I have formed a great attachment for and appreciation of.
