3 stars The most recent album from these Norwegians.

Gazpacho has garnered a pretty large following down in the European continent. I can understand why. Their blend of Radiohead and Marillion is a probably sheer dynamite live. Something a couple of Youtube videos has confirmed. And it is as a live band they have got their good reputation. In this internet sensations age, that is a highly admireable thing.

On this studio album and on studio albums in general, Gazpacho does not really manage to capture and bottle their live spirit. By all means; Missa Atropos is a very good album with some really good songs. Their Radiohead/Marillion sound is really great too.

The problem I have with Missa Atropos is the lack of one or more signature tracks. And I have given this album a lot of time. Both on some walks, in my office and in my home. I cannot really find any great songs here. But the music is by all means great. But missing is one or more great songs. Hence, I am not able to give this album the credit it could have gotten.

A very good album which is missing a vital ingredient.

3.5 stars
