Gilmour made only 2 alums: about 6 years separate them. On this one, the keyboards are really modernized, despite there is an omnipresent accessible organ sound. Gilmour's lead vocals are excellent, as always. Some parts are really symphonic (beautiful orchestral arrangements). There are very sustained emotional guitar solos, like on the "Let's get metaphysical" track. "Blue light" almost has a big band rock style, as reveal the trumpet-like sounds, slightly reminding me the horns arrangements of It Bites' "Whole New World". There are some excellent fretless bass parts, and Gilmour's excellent acoustic rhythmic guitar is omnipresent. A couples of songs were written with the help of Pete Townsend. All the songs are very good.
