On an Island

While there has been considerable mixed reception to Pink Floyd head honcho David Gilmour's first album in twenty-two years, last year's "On an Island", there is no denying the fact that it is a supremely tasteful, elegantly mature piece of work that merits more than just a passing mention in the annals of Floydian history. The most obvious example of Gilmour's artistry is the smooth-flowing title track, which not only features one of Gilmour's trademark extended fiery guitar solos, but also solid harmony-vocal support from songwriting luminaries Graham Nash and David Crosby. Check out the atmospheric clip here.
