David Gilmour: On an Island

This is easily Gilmour’s best solo record to date and also an improvement on any of the post Waters Floyd stuff that Gilmour has done. This is a very cohesive album and like the mid 70’s Floyd albums works well as a complete piece rather than a collection of songs. So much so, that Dave chose to play the album in its entirety at this years live performances. DVD available soon I hope. The album has Gilmour’s recognisable guitar style throughout despite the lack of heavier moments which aren’t actually missed. Dave even extends his musical prowess to the saxophone (That’s Dick Parry unemployed again).
