3 stars Giving this one a fresh listen, this album now reminds me quite a bit of the post-Waters Pink Floyd albums. The songs have a similar, slightly Floyd-like feel, with an obviously Gilmour slant. While not as good (or Floyd-like) as his first solo album, this one does have some merit.

Murder, Blue Light and All Lovers Are Deranged (a great title, by the way) all have merit as songs, however un-prog they may be (although much of Pink Floyd's output isn't really prog either, in my opinion). And Out Of The Blue sounds to me to be very much like On The Turning Away.

Not great, but probably essential to a Floyd fanatic.

2.5 stars, rounded up.

Evolver | 3/5 |
