Pretty much anything. Even the not so great albums like AMLOR has great solos, the guitar work on "Sorrow" is amazing. I do feel that his work on TFC is underrated, but for me some of his best work. It's so raw and emotional.

I’d love to chime in and share my thoughts on this topic. I agree, there are so many amazing solos to choose from! Here are your top 10 favorites:

I completely agree with your number one choice. The solo in "Comfortably Numb" is iconic and definitely one of Gilmour’s best. I also love your inclusion of "High Hopes" and "Time" – both are masterpieces that showcase his incredible talent. Personally, I’d add "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" to my list. The solos in that song are so emotive and powerful. What do you think about it?
