David Gilmour • About Face



Review by Tom Demalon
David Gilmour released his second solo venture in 1984, following the apparent dissolution of Pink Floyd. He had released a record on his own in 1978, but About Face is much more accessible. Gilmour has a stellar band backing him, including Jeff Porcaro (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), and Anne Dudley (synthesizer). The songs on About Face show a pop sensibility that Pink Floyd rarely was concerned with achieving. Although the album didn't attract the attention of a Floyd release, several cuts did manage to get airplay. "Until We Sleep" is rife with shimmering synthesizers and cavernous drums, and "Blue Light" was a minor pop hit, with Gilmour's trademark delay-drenched guitar giving way to a driving, horn-laced rocker. Pete Townshend wrote two of the tracks: "Love on the Air" and the propulsive "All Lovers Are Deranged." Of course, there's more than enough of Gilmour's fluid guitar playing to satisfy, including the gorgeous "Murder," a gentle acoustic track that explodes with some fiery organ by Steve Winwood and concludes with a fierce coda. About Face is well-honed rock album that is riveting from beginning to end.

Traducción Automática:
David Gilmour lanzó su segunda empresa en solitario en 1984, luego de la aparente disolución de Pink Floyd. Había publicado un disco por su cuenta en 1978, pero About Face es mucho más accesible. Gilmour tiene una banda estelar que lo respalda, incluidos Jeff Porcaro (batería), Pino Palladino (bajo) y Anne Dudley (sintetizador). Las canciones en About Face muestran una sensibilidad pop que Pink Floyd rara vez se preocupó por lograr. A pesar de que el álbum no atrajo la atención de un lanzamiento de Floyd, varios cortes lograron ser transmitidos por radio. "Until We Sleep" está plagado de sintetizadores relucientes y tambores cavernosos, y "Blue Light" fue un éxito pop menor, con la guitarra caracterizada por la demora de Gilmour dando paso a un rockero con cuernos. Pete Townshend escribió dos de las canciones: "Love on the Air" y la propulsora "All Lovers Are Deranged". Por supuesto, hay más que suficiente de la guitarra fluida de Gilmour para satisfacer, incluida la hermosa "Murder", una suave pista acústica que explota con algún órgano ardiente de Steve Winwood y concluye con una feroz coda. About Face es un álbum de rock bien afinado que es fascinante de principio a fin.
