5 stars Forget all the hype for Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, and Symphony X, this album is a real shinner for 2007. I'm going out on a limb and voting for Night as the best album of the year.

Until I saw a review for this album on Prog Archives, I had never heard of Gazpacho, but I was willing to check them out and get the album Night. Gazpacho is very unique, and really can't be compared to any other band. The vocals are incredibly differant from any toehr style of singing heard in prog or any other types of music. They are warm and soft, about meduim range, and they slide around in a very pleasent way. There is not virtuosity in the guitars or keyboards, just great composition of songs. There aren't any super-fast keyboard solo's or alot of thrown in shredding on guitar, just 5 extremely well put together songs that have alot of creativity and style. The violin in a few of the songs sounds so beautiful when the background music slowly fades until it is barely audible and then a violin meledy is layered on top.

The production values and the engineering on this album are fantastic, some of the best I've ever heard.

This is truely the best album I've heard from this year. It deserves every one of those 5 stars. I highly recommend it for any fans of softer music.
