Deluxe two CD edition includes a bonus CD that contains the 3D60 version, which, as the name suggests, allows you to listen in glorious three-dimensional sound and comes enhanced with a weblink giving access to Push Entertainment technology, to buy a 15 min Ambient mix from the Metallic Spheres microsite. 2010 release, a collaboration between David Gilmour, the voice and guitar of Pink Floyd, and The Orb, the renowned British Ambient/House collective. Together, they created a two-part sonic mixture in a range of styles combining David's unique guitars and The Orb's crafted sound manipulations.
A good solo album (and only topped by Roger’s Amused To Death) as I am usually very wary of solo albums, this ranks among the better one ever coming out of the Floyd stable. Released a few months before Rick Wright’s Wet Dream, both album probably suffering from Floyd’s Animals’ proximity, these albums can be seen nowadays a bit differently than back then: Obviously Roger Water’s concepts about Floyd’s musical directions was causing a pile of songs that the other two writers couldn’t use on the group’s albums, so they had to do something in order to get them published. Both chose solo albums.
Short unrelated songs that are generally spreading wider than the usual Floyd spectrum, this self-titled debut is an honest one, where it’s obvious Gilmour is not keeping his better material for his solo ventures (some issue often popping up in other groups), as there are no tracks of the calibre of Dogs or Comfortably Numb. Gilmour’s voice used alone, without Wright’s to tone it down, might surprise a bit, but you recognize the man’s vocal chords immediately. Mihalis and Raise My Rent are among the better numbers here. I don't see much relation to Floyd music of that era or others outside of the guitar playing and the singing. That is unless one forgets about Obscured By Clouds.
