4 stars 3.75: The fourth album by David Gilmour, a collaboration with the English electronic group, the orb. It had some success in sells in the UK charting by 3 weeks consecutively. There are few lyrics during the songs, but they are not interesting and are sung in a different way to what we are used to, surprisingly Gilmour didn't do a god job in this one. Musically, it is a really good combination between space rock and electronic music, given a result close to the best records of Krautrock. The guitars as always are really good and add a really good mood to the ambient of the music. The music is varied during the songs, although there are a few boring parts. I think is an excellent addition to any prog collection, and the most close you will ever hear Gilmour in Krautrock music, without being completely a proper krautrock record, of course, but very different to what he was doing all this time.
