The David Gilmour album that you always wished for,
This review is from: About Face (Audio CD)
If you hanker for a solo Gilmour album that still has the influence of Pink Floyd as well as plenty of his own distinctive individuality, then look no further. It's all here in this, his second solo recording from several years back - great melodies; electric and acoustic playing; richness and loneliness. None of the chanting style of singing that bedevils 'Island'. This is pure vintage Gilmour - the album that everyone hoped he would surpass with his third solo effort, but didn't.
I've played 'Island' several times - but I wore out the original vinyl of this record and the re-mastered CD has rarely been out of my top 10 favourites.
Quite simply - if you love Gilmour's style of playing, you will love this. It's everything that Island isn't but should have been.
