    Yeah it has a feel of the sun still being out, for me. Starting with the opening lyrics. And 'One For The Vine' and 'Wot Gorilla' especially. It sounds like September for me pretty much throughout....

    Oh how could I forget Seth Swirskey. The master of well crafted, fairly simple but highly melodic and emotive pop. Pretty much anything on either of his first 2 albums.

    Yep, actually I never listen to them. I do love Gilmour's 'On An Island' but later Floyd though good, I'm just not feeling so much, in part likely because I love earlier albums like 'Meddle' so much.
