One of my favourite albums 22 Jun 2006
By Floydian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Listening to this album, it is not difficult to tell where Pink Floyd gained some of its unique sound from. Aside from that, there are lots of great songs on here showcasing David's brilliant musicianship. The title track features a truly style-defining guitar solo, whereas tracks like "Then I Close My Eyes" and "Take A Breath" are particularly well-arranged. Other more straight-forward songs like "This Heaven" and "Smile" also add to the album's feeling of overall peace and comfort. The closing track "Where We Start" is a wonderful ode to growing old with a significant other.

This is not Pink Floyd, it's David Gilmour, who is a great musician in his own right and proves here that he does not need any help from his fellow band mates to create a brilliant album of good music, although he did not mind having Richard Wright play on a few of the tracks.

Excellence 15 Sep 2008
By Anthony Michael Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I adore this CD! It is more etherial than any of David's other solos, more like, well, Pink Floyd. If you like Floyd, you will love this. Richard Wright's contributions on keyboards are evident and kudos to the mysterious "Polly Sampson" who wrote a good deal of the lyrics. She is in fact Mrs. David Gilmour. The CD is thematic for a good portion, like Dark Side of the Moon, or Wish You Were Here, but as the title says, from the perspective of being on an island. It isn't hard to imagine that either; just dim the lights, turn off the phone and turn it on.
