Awaken 6am
2 stars As other reviewers state the word to describe this album is "Dissapointing". As is, could have been a good album recorded by someone else. It`s way under Gilmour quality standard, and light years from the beautiful "On An Island" which was controversial indeed but luckily at 3.53 the highest rating here for a studio album from him. Instead "Rattle..." seems an album comprised on a bunch of songs as if released in a rush due to some contract with recording label , which is not obviously. Other word could be "Uninspired", tempting on vaudeville-esque and jazzy airs, even tango ! while David surely has tons of recent or even old material to make a double album full of top notch music. Also Dissapointing is that both audio CD and DVD 5.1 are just good quality in sound terms. DVD has also some barn-jams and lots of interviews in which most of the time David`s wife polly talks and talks... Conclusion: If he is about to release a solo album every 9 years, this could be an unfair farewell.
