The master returns........,
This review is from: On An Island [Bonus DVD] (Audio CD)
Now turned 60 years old, having played guitar for a lifetime, David Gilmour is musically timeless. The same basic song structures he has offered in his albums 'Looking Back' and 'David Gilmour' is thankfully present in this album. There still is, and hopefully always will be, that unmistakable Pink Floyd element ever present in his music.
Interspersing verses of what appears to be a kind of musical autobiography, he offers up thoughtful guitar solos that may wail painfully one minute and beckon you softly to share his thoughts the next.
Gilmour's style is unmistakable; he is a musician of the very highest calibre. Have a listen to this long overdue album and enjoy Gilmour being his inimitable self once again.
Gilmour is Gilmour is Gilmour..........
