4 stars The music of PINK FLOYD, Roger Waters and David Gilmour has been an intrinsic part of my life. Albums like "Ummagumma", "Dark Side", "The Wall", "Wish You Were Here" and into the solo albums... Waters' "Pros and Cons", "Amused to Death" and into Gilmour's sensational debut album and slightly less filling "About Face" and now comes the 3rd solo album from the aged David Gilmour "On An Island". Joined by an elite class of side musicians including David Crosby, Graham Nash, ex bandsmate Richard Wright, Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt, Andy Newmark and Jools Holland contribute to this flawless and easy flowing album. "On an Island" is a pretty tame album which goes down sweet and softly without any abrupt stops or craziness. The album is littered with Gilmour's soft voice, harmonies and some pretty awesome guitar solos. The album is pretty much laid back and ebbs and flows with a high quality and still contains that certain PINK FLOYD flare. Overall a very solid album and nice to hear Gilmour doing his own thing and not the PINK FLOYD all star band... by the way just for the record those later couple of "PINK FLOYD" albums are not FLOYD kids! Immitation at best with some horrid lyrics and re-used FLOYD stuff. This album is much much better!
