Undoubtedly one of the best ever. In my opinion, it's Pink Floyd's second best album after Dark Side of the Moon, but it's very close.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond is a superb track and Sid's memory is immortalised for ever in the heartfelt lyrics. All of the tracks on this album are first class. It is a close call for me between this one and Dark Side Of the Moon.

"Shine on, you crazy diamond" is a song made by Gods. If you ever feel unmotivated, sad, insecure, this song is for you. It's so powerful and so intense.
This entire album is amazingly beautiful.

The production, atmospheres, and general vibe of this album is otherworldly and unmatched by the vast majority of other albums by anyone (except the Floyd themselves)

The greatest Pink Floyd album in my opinion. Both Wish You Were Here and Shine On You Crazy Diamond are better than any track on Dark Side to me.

The only album cover I have a shirt of!

There are 2 reasons why this isn't in the top 10 on here:

1) Dark Side of the Moon is an obvious contender for best album of all time.

2) A lot of ppl will only put 1 album from a band on their charts b/c there just isn't enough room.

Add it up. With its 90/100 rating (which is too low honestly), this should be in the top 10 but unfortunately the only band that will get an exemption to the "1 album per band" rule for most ppl is The Beatles. (OKC and Kid A are just so different from each other that no one thinks twice when they see both of them on a chart, it's expected). Also, OKC and Kid A don't compete with each other in decade charts b/c they were released in different decades whereas WYWH has to directly compete with DSOTM (not to mention many, many other 70's classics) on "best of the 70's" charts.

This is why WYWH and Animals will always be underrated. However, The Wall is slightly overrated b/c of overexposure - there's even a movie! That's the power of advertising for you though....

My second favorite Floyd album after Dark Side. Shine on You Crazy Diamond and the title track are great. Don't care to much for the other tracks.
