4 stars Thank God for Gilmour releasing this album, because if he left this Earth with his final contribution to the musical world being "The Division Bell" it would be a sad ending to a wonderful career indeed. But as it stands, he didn't end with that, and this is really a very good album. It's mellower than anything Mr. Gilmour has ever released before, but at the same time very atmospheric, and musically it's quite good. The overall sound can best be expressed by the title of the album "On an Island", which in itself describes pretty much what this album is all about. Imagine nighttime on an island on a mellow night and that's what you get here. "Castellorizon" is my favorite song here and excellent album opener, which is an instrumental that basically takes all the elements of the album and shoves them into one quite psychedelic and pretty song. The rest of the album is great, though occasionally it might be a bit too mellow for it's own good, but nonetheless, this is the type of album Floyd should have released as their final album. I'd give it a "B".
