I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

This is an unusual one for GDM. I've tended to steer clear of solo albums from top bands. So guys like Phil Collins, Mark Knopfler, Ringo Starr and David Gilmour have seen little action from me in the past. Eric has picked up the slack, including Sting's debut solo CD 'Dream Of The Blue Turtles' just recently. So with this in mind, I've decided to aim the pen at Pink Floyd main-man David Gilmour and his 2015 offering 'Rattle That Lock'. Now I won't pretend to be an expert on his solo material, though I might be tempted to test his back catalogue if and when time prevails. I'll review this much like a newbie, so we'll see how this pans out.

The Songs
'5 AM' is a dreamy way to get things underway. Understated and melancholy. I could understand maybe one or two tracks of this nature appearing here and there, but not across the entire album. Surely not? In fact, there are only two tracks where the metronome is challenged. The second up title track and the ninth track 'Today'. The rest? Enough to send me to sleep sorry to say. The majority of the album drifts on clouds and is powered by a slower than slow tempo. The mostly ambient piano layered pieces are admittedly lush and pretty, but also so very dull.

In Summary
With Pink Floyd now effectively put out to pasture following last years instrumental CD 'The Endless River', what beckons now for the 69 year old singer/guitarist? Maybe there's one or two more efforts in the wings, but after having heard this, I am in no hurry to explore Gilmour's back catalogue, if this was anything to go by. For Pink Floyd die-hards only I would suggest.

I covered his 1984 album 'About Face'. The above is not a great release.

Picked this up the other week for a couple of quid from the local car boot sale, so someone else didn't rate it too much either. Not great, it does have it's moments though but worth it for 2 pounds.

Ugh, I was planning on getting this but I don't know about that now. I'll wait until somebody puts it up on Youtube now. And record it on cassette tape.

One of my favourite guitarists and a really beautifully atmospheric album full of Gilmour's trademark guitar and some quite lovely compositions. The DTS and 5.1 versions on the Blu-ray, included in the 2 disc box set, are truly stunning as well. Headphones album of the year
