On An Island


Officially released one week ago, David Gilmour’s album we’ve all been waiting for (well, I have, since the beginning of the year) is now in stores … and in my headphones.

The sound is excelent, reminds me of Pink Floyd (I cannot forget the roots…), but it has something clearly distinctive. It inspires a state of peace of mind, just like being on an island. The album shows a calm, positive sound and inspires the state of a man who is happy, relaxed and peaceful with his life.

The album has been released on the same day David celebrated 60 years of age. What a nice gift to himself :) Even more, right after the release, the album jumped on 1st position in UK Charts and is already Gold in other European Countries as well.

The album features collaborations with a lot of performers, some of them ex-Pink Floyd (like Richard Wright, who will also join on tours). Still, no credits shown to Roger Waters….

My personal favourite track from this album is This Heaven, which you can get from here. Overall, the whole album is a wonderful listening experience, so I strongly suggest you buy it.

Final Note: Check David Gilmour’s blog for learning more about live experiences of this album.

You can still smell the Pink. This is some kind of beautiful. The prog-rock stylee guitar solos he should have kept in the cupboard though. Undusted.
