EDITORS’ NOTES

As a guitarist, David Gilmour often conjures magic from simplicity. It’s a method applied to much of his fourth solo album, not just the fret work. Sure, there are moments of grandstanding but what shines through is a winning understatement. Whether it’s the defiant funk of “Today” or the melancholic hush of “A Boat Lies Waiting”, each track is built with measure and precision, complementing the reflection and resolve of lyrics written with novelist wife Polly Samson.

How can people write a review for an album that hasn't even released yet?

It's not quite fair that people are able to write a review for an album that hasn't even released yet. Any and all opinions stated about this album are entirely based off of one single, and if anybody is familiar with David Gilmour, then they know that one singular track is not enough to measure his aptitude and capability. Until the release of this album, none of these reviews are relevant and I am incredibly let down by iTunes for allowing an artist's work to be torn down before even being heard.

David Gilmour - A Living Legend!

As David stated in an interview, “Rattle That Lock” will be a departure from the sound and mood of “On An Island”. I think that very well may be why I am a Gilmour fan, his work is dynamic. I am very excited to hear the new material on this album and already know it will be fantastic. Thank you David for continuing to make beautiful music!

Well worth the wait

Well, it only took us nine years to get a new solo work, but it was well worth the wait. The depth of the lyrics, the slow steady burn of the guitar, and the timelessness of David Gilmour's voice. Excellent job.
