Back when it first came out it was striking, that revelation, and you realized that a HUGE part of what was known and loved as Pink Floyd came from it's main vocalist and guitarist. This was Gilmour's very first step on the road to his massive success, both artistically and commercially, that eventually reached it's full flower with his "Live in Gdansk" Release.
It was a long haul over a few decades and this first effort did little to burnish Gilmour's name into the public consciousness. It took his battle to retain the Pink Floyd name after Waters' departure and the success of post-Waters Floyd to finally achieve that name recognition.
All that as history now, a listen to this album is still, 30 years later, a revelation. It's all there, everything the taciturn genius is capable of - great melodic development, rich, tasteful, distinctive guitar work, impeccable arrangements and ... that voice, that silky, honey toned voice that's capable of growling with grit as well.
Right from the start, "David Gilmour" has got you hooked and it stays that way right until the last massive chords of "I Can't Breathe Anymore" fade out at the end of it all. As good as Gilmour has become, and the man is an undisputed master, this album still contains some of his best work.Read more ›
The songs on this release are relatively simple, but all contain that distinctive David Gilmour guitar tone that is uniquely his. You can definitely hear some lead guitar riffs that would resurface later on future Pink Floyd albums. (Animals and the Wall).
His voice is also familiar as one of the voices of Pink Floyd, the other being Roger Waters. Gilmour's voice has a soothing quality that always gave Pink Floyd that unique touch.
For some reason I missed this album when it was released in 1978, but "discovered" it just recently.
What a treat! It's a must have for any Pink Floyd/David Gilmour fan.
