4 stars 4.5: The fifth album by David Gilmour, the best yet in my opinion and actually being his more commercial successfully in his solo career, as I considered On Island too calm. After hearing the different, but really good On an Island and the disappointing About Face, I was only going to give it a play to the most recommended song of this one, but I instantly fell in love. All the songs are well structured and are really good sung. The keyboard are really good and finally the guitar is not over appearing as in the other records. The lyrics as always are written by Gilmour and in some cases with his wife. Even, it sounds more to the floyd style, without being as excellent of course, and being the second best record of any solo career of any ex member of PF, only after Wet Dream. Every song has something special and even there is a jazz song here. And now I will be waiting for the release of his next album, as he promised he had some material left out of this one and he wanted to do another record. an Excellent addition to any prog list and the second best solo record for any PF Member yet.
