"All Rights Removed" is only the second album in 6 years of existence for Airbag and this new effort is in line with the previous one. "All Rights Removed" is an album that may seem short with its 50 minutes (some artists offer us 20 more minutes for the same support), but this format seems to suit Airbag and has the merit of not tiring the listener who would not be totally captivated. The style remains "floydian" with perhaps a guitar slightly on the background on the first 5 tracks.

It is indeed necessary to wait for the sixth track, "Homesick I-III", to enter this universe that Gilmour would not deny. Bjørn Riis lets his guitar fly away and join the stars for a long soli full of feeling. It would be unfair to focus on the ultimate title of the album under the pretext that its duration allows the listener to go far and high, unfair compared to the 9 minutes of "Never Coming Home" where the guitar takes the lion's share. Also unfair to the short "Light Them All Up" whose strange and heavy atmosphere cannot leave anyone indifferent.

Airbag is not only a "Gilmour" guitar, it is also a voice that at times has "Steven Wilson" accents. Is it Bjørn Riis' or Asle Tostrup's? It's hard to know since both musicians are credited with vocals. "All Rights Removed" is typically an addictive album, a quick listening can leave you with a feeling of déjà vu and not hold your attention, but if you let yourself be taken on board, you are not about to go down again.

"All Rights Removed" has nothing to envy to "Identity" in the end: the same sensitivity, the same talent, the same feeling. "Homesick I-III" would itself justify the purchase. Since all the compositions are of a very high level of quality, you know what you have to do...
