4 stars This is a very nice album. I think if Gilmour, with Richard Wright and Nick Mason, had released something more like this when they were trying to continue Pink Floyd, the response would have been much better. In fact, this album is far superior to any of Roger Waters' solo output.

The first half of the album is very Floyd-like. With lush orchestrations, and lead by Gilmour's tasteful guitar and soothing vocals, the album often resembles the early nineteen seventies Pink Floyd (their best period). And while not bad, the second have tends to tail away, both in energy and in arrangements, with the songs getting more and more relaxed toward the end. This may be by design, as the album is called On An Island, and Gilmour may be going toward a sense of deepening relaxation as the album goes on.

I like it.
