iTunes Review

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.

Customer Reviews

Fully listened. Full Review

Pre-ordered this album the moment I knew David had a new album coming out. Listened to it today and I'm a bit torn. Overall I thought the album was decent, but not Gilmour's best. It felt thin musically at times and sometimes unnatural. Even so, each song had a very unique feel to it, and the album never got boring or repetitive. David put together a musically diverse and lyrically emotion album that succeeds several times, but may falter at others. Overall a decent album, for anybody on the fence about buying the album, if you like David's previous work, this is a good buy. If you're a wandering Pink Floyd fan, check out David's first solo effort before getting to this.

Agree with the first review

"Endless River" is what I listen to on the plane when I want to sleep. "Rattle that Lock" at least gives some hope of R&R. The independent music of Waters & Gilmour is like Lennon without McCartney. Together they produced biting, sardonic music. Apart, it's like eating a Crunchie without a chocolate coating. Tasty but not satisfying.

Not sure still feeling burned from Endless River

There was a time I would buy any Pink Floyd album or solo without hearing a single track. Endless River was such a slap to the face I still feel the burn. I will wait until I hear it. I would hate to find out it was some left over crap that was incomplete and left on the floor, like Endless River! So for now I will give it 3 stars but will update after Sept 18.
