I like it. There are similarities, but it's not as dark and creepy as Run Like Hell.
It's like a pop version.
Yea, I like this cut. And this one:
different, definitely not my fav Gilmour song
I felt a Miami Vice background/driving music kind of vibe.
For 80s Gilmour, I think I'd prefer to listen to the Pink Floyd album "A Momentary Lapse of Reason".
I must be narrow minded but Gilmour without Waters and Waters without Gilmour
Does not work for me
It's funny - my 16 yr old son has suddenly become a huge Pink Floyd fan - and he feels the same way - he doesn't like the post-Waters material as much. It's a sweet and sour relationship - all Gilmour is too sweet, all Waters too sour.
I'm OK with post-Waters Floyd, mainly because that was when I got into Floyd, and Gilmour is one of my top influences.
(Oddly enough, before I got into Floyd people would tell me I sounded like Gilmour - I guess because I was into both blues and prog rock - I would usually respond, "Uh, ok."
Then I heard "Comfortably Numb" for the first time and it was like, "OOOOOOHHH... Got it.")
Musicians often go solo after a band breaks up (though, I do realize he released an album as "Pink Floyd" a few years after this song). There was a time in the late 90s when Rush was in a hiatus and both Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson both released solo albums. Also, the members of the Beatles have released their own solo music after The Beatles broke up. since Dire Straits broke up, Mark Knopfler has gone on to do his own solo music.
Song writing wise, yea, Floyd was the best of both worlds. I do love the hear him play in general, and even cut loose a bit like this. And it's interesting to see musical links. I would have recycled this sound into The Wall as well, it's a great fit.
Gilmour is my favorite guitarist/singer. I have to listen to something by him everyday.
There's something about his tone and voice that removes my stress.
