4.0 out of 5 stars
After the Rock Opera....Comes the Rock Novel, 2 Jan 2001
The soundtrack to a very hard-to-find video, White City finds Pete doing what he does best. Reflecting.
Although a lot of the symbolism will mean nothing to anyone outside London (White City is a London housing estate apparently) the images can be applied to anywhere. We all know someone who 'drives to comittees in their German car'...we can all 'look over chequered fields to see the towering web of steel'.
Some fantastic guitar work by Dave Gilmour finishes off this unusual album...I dock the CD one star for not including the extensive sleeve notes provided with the vinyl version I bought oh so many years ago!
This is a sort of Solo Quadrophenia.
