2 stars Strange name for a Norwegian band! This work is actually an EP that the band released from a previous demo work which was downloadable and comprised four tracks of which three are featured here. The title refers to the Andalusian soup gazpacho which is always served chilled (and not at 37).

Actually, the music proposed here is rather simplistic, although melodic. It sounds quite eighty-ish to be honest. Vocals are quite monotonous throughout the seven tracks. Under these circumstances, the shortness of this work almost becomes an asset. When the first song ends, I thought: not that bad although the Marillion Mark II could have written this type of music.

Jan Ohme (the singer) has not a passionate voice I'm afraid and after a couple of tracks, some irritation prevails. Too much Hogarth oriented (Ghost, Bravo). And you might know that I am not a fan at all of his monochord tone of voice.

Some popish mood are noticeable as well (Delete Home). One of the best songs available, together with Sea Of Tranquility.

Two stars for this work. It lacks in originality and feeling. Most of the tracks are too similar and on the mellowish side.
