Beautiful but a bit middle of the road for me. Check out Dave's first solo album ('David Gilmour').....it's not brilliant but it has a bit more balls. Great guitar work in this but it's very similar to the rest of the album.......lacks light & shade. Soporific maybe but a good soundtrack to a hot bath.
I don't understand why anyone would think this is about Syd. It was Roger that was always writing everything with Syd in mind. And if it weren't for David coming in, and turning the 'ship' (Floyd) to a different course, band woulda died with Syd's freakout. In light of the Gilmour-direction, Syd's music has no substance
