Set to be quite an interesting album indeed! Icon_yippee

Quote:Metallic Spheres is designed to be heard in two parts – 'Metallic Side' (24'48"), and 'Spheres Side' (25'09"). Each track, or side, consists of five movements. The album uniquely utilizes David Gilmour's electric guitar and lap steel guitar, Alex Paterson's sound manipulation, keyboards and turntables, and Youth's bass guitar and keyboards.

Hmm.... Really enjoyed the FFWD record

Hopefully it's not a noodley Gilmour solo fest throughout Grumble

Yeah that crossed my mind too..... I had no problems to Fripp's noodlings on FFWD but dont know if I could take a whole LP of Gilmour in the spotlight..... let's see how it turns out! Smile

Never thought of Gilmour's playing as noodly [Image: scratchchin.gif]

I'm interested to see how this turns out.

David Gilmour's "About Face" album I found dreadful. Proper dreadful.

The first track on the album, Until We Sleep is still one of my favourite songs ever.

Yeh, noodly fits some of his stuff when he's left to his own devices Grin
Some bits sound like lost Primal Scream instrumentals.

I've never heard this album. Listening as I post.
