Released on his 60th birthday, David Gilmour's third solo album highlights a somewhat leisurely work rate but should definitively seal his place as the tasteful one in the Pink Floyd.

Harsher critics may point out the similarity between this and more famous Floydian moments (the title track, for instance, is a kind of "Wish You Were Animals") yet what Island... really confirms is that all the BEST post-Syd bits by the far-out foursome came from the mind and fingers of our David. Tasty guitar work? Tick! Plaintive, understated double-tracked vocals? Tick!! Jazzy blues with rather gorgeous melodies? Double tick.

This is all wrapped up in a quiet, quintessentially English vibe, aided and abetted by Robert Wyatt (vocals and cornet), co-production by Phil Manzanera and contributions from David Crosby, Graham Nash and even old mucker, Rick Wright. In lieu of any post-Live 8 Floyd reunion this is more than fine, thanks...
