4 stars I waited a while before I bought this album as I did not really enjoy "On and Island" that much and the mixed reviews also did not encourage me. Then after listening to the title track I got more curious and I bought it spontaneously seeing it in a record store. This one IMO is better than his last solo work (On an Island), his collaboration with the Orb (metallic Spheres), on par with his first solo album and nearly as good (but different although here and there parallels shine through) as the final Pink Floyd album (The Endless River).

Mr Gilmour does not reinvent himself (except maybe on the jazzy track "The Girl in the yellow dress" which is somewhat misplaced on the album) but delivers a slightly melancholic album with great atmosphere and strong melodies. . Highlights for me are the catchy and grooving title track, the powerful " In any tongue" and the atmospheric "Beauty. Anyone who enjoyed the last three Pink Floyd outputs and David Gilmour's solo work will surely not be disappointed.

King Manuel | 4/5 |
