Pink Floyd is one of the bands that has brought the most to music ... They are pillars of Progressive Rock, space rock and blues rock. This inescapable group is the author of many musical masterpieces such as "Animal", "Wish You Were Here" or "The Dark Side Of The Moon" (For me, "The Wall" is not an excellent album). But the best of all these albums is "Wish You Were Here". This album is much more ambitious and successful than "The Dark Side Of The Moon", which is a bit overrated. The album is amazing, although it was recorded in difficult conditions for the band, Pink Floyd has managed to do even better than on the previous album, "The Dark Side Of The Moon". The melodies are perfect, the solos of Gilmour are magical and the experimental sounds are really revolutionary for the time. I love this album !!! All the songs are beautiful, this album is one of the greatest classics of all time. Very good job of Pink Floyd !

10/10

Best track: "Shine On You Crazy Diamonds, Pts. 1-5"

French comment :
Whish You Were Here est le meilleur album des Pink Floyd. Oui, je préfère Wish You Were Here à The Dark Side Of The Moon, il est clairement meilleur. Composé de seulement 5 titres, cet album vous fait voyagé dans un monde psychédélique où le blues règne. Je considère cet album comme l'un des meilleurs de tout les temps. 10/10 sans hésiter.
Mention spéciale pour tout les titres, il n'y a pas de déchet.

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

Amazing album. Arguably their greatest album musically. David Gilmour is the man!
