3 stars First PF guitarist David Gilmour solo album. Not bad, but nothing in common with progressive rock at all. Could be of interest of two main groups of listeners: PF maniacs ( and they will find there some PF characteristic sounds plus much more gutar sound than in any PF album) and just blues rock lovers.

Album contains mid-tempo guitar based blues rock with many guitar sounds, pleasant in melodies in arrangements. Few instrumentals as well. Almost all songs are better than average, and few are good.

Gilmour blues-rock is coming not from dirty black US-roots, isn't it and classic british blues rock ( in vein of John Mayall). Gilmour is using blues rock structures and sounds, mixing tham with some PF characteristic signs, and all that are cooked as pop-rock dish.

All in all, album is pleasant for listening, but perfectly demonstrates, who is the main person in PF ( for sure, not Gilmour). If you're interested in more Floydian solo work, just take Rick Wright's "Wet Dreams".
