3 stars As I have mentioned somewhere I am not a "Pink" fan; I am more like a "Pink" songs fan. With every band and musician in fact; (hanging around with the right crowd, teaches you that you "owe nobody nothing and the other way around").... No obligations or concessions: The expierence as such. If it moves you it is for you; if not; it is not. This David Gilmour self-titled album; was once part of my vinyl collection. Lost; not by intention...(the opposite;actually). When the digital "overblow" came to be; my CD "re-collection" grew in variety and a lot more in quality. And this first David Gilmour solo work was missing.........The kind of records I like: solo works of members out or in the meantime (as this one) of "monster-bands" . Normally they are at least entertaining; because nobody wants to sound like their band . In the case of this work which; by the way will be highly more appreciated in the world of good Rock n´Roll without the prog-tag. But being that this is Progarchives and not some "Rock mag";.David Gilmour´s great solo effort outside Floyd is closer in style to good manufactured songwriting proto-prog based bands. It has language, body (a basically 3 piece unit: Guitar, Bass, Drums), good songwriting as mentioned, no "phlosophical" lyrics, just songs; the "normal" kind.. even love songs. By now we all know he can carry this endeavor with his voice and guitar alone; back then it was not so obvious. When it comes to guitar "trademarking" sounds; this guy stands among "giants" in any field of its forms;.. and the best of all is; it does not sound like the Floyd at the time. Closer in feeling to his later own-version of the Floyd; but without the musical pandemia which they are well known for. So;... overshadowed by one hell of a "wall". This is good music. ..Got it once; lost it; got it again. Now if you keep it forever and ever;.. is up to you! Anyway 3 Stars more towards excellent than mere good.
