Editors’ Notes

When the Pink Floyd guitarist released his debut solo album in 1978, it was obvious he was frustrated with his Pink Floyd day gig. The songs here are surprisingly reeled in, shorter and more accessible in the short term; they reveal a guitarist/songwriter out to make a name for himself. So it’s not a stretch to say this is a concise version of what Floyd was doing then (it came out between Animals and The Wall). The linchpin is the gently cascading “There’s No Way Out of Here,” a FM radio hit that Gilmour had cowritten in 1976 with a woefully overlooked band he produced called Unicorn. The spare “No Way” tells of what Floyd life might’ve been like then, while “Short and Sweet” showcases Gilmour’s strengths—the ethereal power chords and vocals foreshadow “Run Like Hell” from The Wall. Both “So Far Away” and “I Can’t Breathe Anymore” expose moments of true tenderness—songwriting that transcends time and place—while the straight-up rockers “Cry from the Street” and “Deafinitely” are sturdy example of ’70s prog.

Customer Reviews

Buy It

It sounds just like Dark Side but with a little bit more darkness to it

Another slice of adolescence

I originally bought this from the cut out bin for four bucks when I was 15. I couldn't afford Darkside and certainly couldn't buy the Wall, so this tape and Wish You were Here were my Floyd collection for a bit. This beats everything the reformed Floyd did in the late 80's and is the best thing Gilmour did solo. It rocks, but has that dark edge that makes the Floyd style so appealing.

Must Have

Anyone who Enjoys Pink Floyd Or The Artistry of a masterful musician such as David Gilmour,must have this in their collection.After years of hearing "Theres no way out of here"in limited airplay, knowing it was David Gilmour and almost being Haunted wondering "where did that come from?This album shines from the first track to the last.Another example of the amazing talent of David Gilmour,that most people may not even know exists. Im buying it right now!
