5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and atmospheric, 11 Oct 2010
This review is from: Metallic Spheres (Audio CD)
An interesting and highly succesful cooperation between the illustrious Pink Floyd guitar hero and the sonic pioneers The Orb. And a true collaboration, not just the Orb plus some Gilmour samples. Instead he plays some truly atmospheric guitarparts which blends effortleesly with The Orb's soundscapes. Really integrated in to the music without hardly any display of his usual blues-scale based leads. Rather reminiscent of Steve Hillage's restrained and spacey playing with System 7.

Two long suite like tracks with varying soundpatterns. Bass/drum like passages organically drifting towards more free flowing ambient parts and some almost new age like quietness. With a common thread in the form of snippets from a remake of Graham Nash's "Chicago".

Essential for fans of the psychedelic side of Pink Floyd and of music that likes to take you on an inner journey.
