From Keatownrodriguez 10/22/2018 21:06
I'm gonna start off with saying, this album is not for everyone, 20 minute songs with mostly echoing guitars take up a little less than half this album, but I encourage you to read up on the history of this album, then come back and give it a listen, hopefully it blows you away just like it did for me. With that being said, this album blows me away every time i put it on. The haunting guitars that symbolize Syd Berret, the crushing anti music industry lyrics, and the melancholy verses just about missing a friend. Pink Floyd is one of the greats for a reason, and I believe this is the best album that they ever put out.

Another masterpiece from the band, a worthy successor to the group's magnum opus Dark Side Of The Moon

Wish You Were Here Is a really great album. Shine On You Crazy Diamond sucks you right in and you can just sit back and listen. its followed by Welcome To the Machine, a great song but a little dragged out in my opinion, then followed by two perfect Floyd songs. Have A Cigar and Wish You Were Here, I Think these are some of the first songs you can show someone if they are looking to get in to Floyd, It shows more of there heavy side, and how good of a soloist Gilmour, also shows some of Rogers more cynical lyrics. on the opposite side, Wish You Were Here shows there softer side, the acoustic prowess of Gilmour, And the brilliant lyrics of Roger Waters. after wish you were here, the album segues into Shine On You Crazy Diamond "Bookending" the album. though it does sort of drag in the end

This is another brilliant album from Pink Floyd. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (both parts) and Wish You Were Here is easily 100/100 but (maby because of the greatness of those three tracks) the remaining two songs feels more like fillers, brilliant fillers though.
