On an island with David Gilmour
The first entry in the series, which shall begin now, is this: The new David Gilmour album, On an Island. To a long-time Pink Floyd fan like me (one the greatest moments of my life was seeing them live at Foxboro Stadium, near Boston, in 1995), this is truly something to be happy about. It's not Pink Floyd, to be sure -- most recently, all we've had is that amazing Live8 performance at Hyde Park, London -- but it's distinctly Gilmour. And that's pretty much as good as it gets.
