David Gilmour

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
By the time of David Gilmour's solo debut, he had not only established himself several times over as an underrated, powerful guitarist in Pink Floyd, but as a remarkably emotional singer, his soothing approach perfectly suited to such songs as "Wish You Were Here." The self-titled album, recorded with journeyman bassist Rick Wills and Sutherland Brothers drummer Willie Wilson, later to be part of the touring Floyd lineup for its Wall dates, isn't a deathless collection of music in comparison to Gilmour's group heights, but is a reasonably pleasant listen nonetheless. Certainly it's much more approachable than Animals, released earlier that year, eschewing epics for ...

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
By the time of David Gilmour's solo debut, he had not only established himself several times over as an underrated, powerful guitarist in Pink Floyd, but as a remarkably emotional singer, his soothing approach perfectly suited to such songs as "Wish You Were Here." The self-titled album, recorded with journeyman bassist Rick Wills and Sutherland Brothers drummer Willie Wilson, later to be part of the touring Floyd lineup for its Wall dates, isn't a deathless collection of music in comparison to Gilmour's group heights, but is a reasonably pleasant listen nonetheless. Certainly it's much more approachable than Animals, released earlier that year, eschewing epics for relatively shorter, reflective numbers. While Gilmour wrote the vast majority of the songs himself, the most successful number was co-written with Unicorn member Ken Baker: "There's No Way Out of Here," an agreeably dreamy, wistful song featuring an attractive acoustic slide guitar/harmonica hook. That it sounds a bit like a Pink Floyd outtake certainly doesn't hurt, but one figures Roger Waters would have tried for some heavily barbed lyrics to offset the melancholy. Throughout the album Gilmour sounds like he's having some jamming fun with his compatriots in his own particular blues-meets-the Home Counties style, adding keyboard overdubs here and there his efforts are passable, but it's understandable why he's known for his guitar work first and foremost. Numbers of note include "Cry From the Street," with its fully rocked-out conclusion, the sweetly sad "So Far Away," one of his best vocal showcases, and the concluding "I Can't Breathe Anymore," capturing the recurrent Pink Floyd theme of isolation quite well. While one would be hard-pressed to hum a memorable melody outside of "There's No Way Out of Here," it's still a good enough experience for those who enjoy his work.

    Floyd Fans

    It is obvious he rehashed his "Raise my Rent" guitar solo for "The Division Bell" track "What Do You Want From Me".Reguardless of that, Gilmour let everyone know that his musical ability can survive outside of Floyd. I like "There's No Way Out Of Here" most of all because the song makes me think of a movie where you can see yourself sitting around a table in a smoke filled room planning a robbery without the foresight of knowing everyone surrounding you is about to die in a bank job gone wrong. The pure poetry of this album (as well as his work with Floyd) tells tales that anyone can relate or space to. Shoegazers, stoners and everyday fans of Floyd and Gilmour's work will enjoy this album.

    An album that must be owned by all!

    This album is definately the ultimate need for any Floyd fan. It shows that much of Pink Floyd's sound and texture came from David Gilmour. The sessions for this album yeilded a cut demo that would later become the greatest Floyd song that there ever was, ''Comfotably Numb''; and it shows just how great a guitar player Gilmour is.
