A lead role in a cage? – David Gilmour – Rattle that Lock

Quelle: amazon.de

Neun Jahre nach „On An Island“ veröffentlichte Pink-Floyd-Gitarrist David Gilmour nun sein neues Solo-Album „Rattle That Lock“. Kurioserweise lagen die Solo-Karrieren der einzelnen Floyd-Mitglieder zur Hochzeit der Band Pink Floyd in den 70ern und frühen 80ern ziemlich brach. David Gilmour veröffentlichte bereits 1978 und 1984 je ein Solo-Album, beiden war aber kein besonders großer kommerzieller Erfolg vergönnt gewesen. Rattle that Lock, loose those chains!

A World of Magnets and Miracles: Pink Floyd – The Division Bell

Ich finde „The Division Bell“ zu unrecht verrissen, ein wundervolles Album, voller Melancholie, die über allem liegt. Nie klang Gilmours Gitarre wehmütiger als auf diesem Album, das krasse Gegenteil des harschen Vorgängeralbums „A Momentary Lapse of Reason“. Besonders erstaunt bin ich immer wieder darüber, wie viele „Echos“ alter Zeiten auf dem Album vertreten sind, seien es Anspielungen im Text, in der Musik, den Geräuschen oder im Booklet.

It’s been seventeen years since The X-Files hit the big screen. Shot at a production budget of around 60 million dollars, the movie did cost 58 million dollars more than an average episode of the show. The movie did well in movie theatres around the world, although it wasn’t THE blockbuster one could have been expected after the show became a cultural phenomenon in the mid-1990’s. Tied in between season five and six, the movie continues the story arc about the planned colonialisation through an alien force. X-Files re-opened

September 10, 2013, marked the twentieth anniversary of The X-Files’ launch as a television show. So, what better date to release the second volume of The X-Files music by Mark Snow? The first volume, released in May 2011, gained high interest within The X-Files’ fan base but also with soundtrack collectors that aren’t huge fans of the show per se. The pressing was limited to 3,000 copies, and the set finally sold out in 2012. Since then, people who missed it were looking around the internet to find a copy of the set. Sometimes it shows up again on Ebay or the Amazon Marketplace, but unfortunately most of time for unreasonable prices. TrustNo1

Talking about The X-Files means talking about Mark Snow. Without his musical input, his haunting themes, and his capability of creating a dark and moody atmosphere, the show would lack one of its most important features. Rectal Palpation
