2 stars Even debut solo LP of David Gilmour was far from Pink Floyd music and any progressive music at all, but in fact was better than average guitar blues rock album, second Gilmour solo work is pop-rock mix of whatever you want. Serious list of musicians, few synthesizers and brass section all that done their job in good traditions of 80-s. You will found there few uncharacteristic and out of place Gilmour guitar solos, funky pop-rock dance and very rounded sound. Few PF traces are still appearsv here and there, but in general it is just unsuccessful wish to sell something for pop generation from 80-s.

It's difficult for me to decide, who could be interested in this album, may be just heavy PF maniacs-collectors. Haveng a few good moments, in many places that album is difficult for listening!

P.S. Pink Floyd researchers will find there some characteristic sounds and structures Gilmour will use later in after-Waters Pink Floyd albums.
