One of Pink Floyd's better albums, if not their best, this is one long extravagant elegy to former bandmate and lead singer Syd Barrett.
Some notable tracks:
"Shine on You Crazy Diamond", a multi-part rock opus that is quintessential Pink Floyd
"Welcome to the Machine", a cynical view of the rock industry ('cause Waters is good at that)
"Wish You Were Here", great lyrics... read more

Description: Wish You Were Here is the ninth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, released in September 1975. Inspired by material they composed while performing across Europe, it was recorded over numerous sessions at London's Abbey Road Studios. The album explores themes of absence, the music business, and former band-mate Syd Barrett's mental decline. Early sessions were a difficult and arduous process but it was Roger Waters' idea to split the centrepiece track "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" in two, and join each half with three new compositions. "Shine On" was a tribute to Barrett, who, in an iron ... (more)

"Dark Side of the Moon boosted Floyd planet-wide; this saw them embracing their past for cathartic inspiration. Huge and eerie in sound, but anguished in mood: They made it in memory of cofounder and acid casualty Syd Barrett. Standout track: “Wish You Were Here”"

"This album manages to vibreate my feelings into new dimensions. I can cry, I can laugh, and I can fly with it. No i'm not high while listening to it, but it's awesome too if you're deeply in love with floyd. but even If you're new to this kinda music, this is a good start for you to dive into your unconciousnes."

Favorite Lyrics (13 music items)

"Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Parts I - IX Written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Richard Wright Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun. Shine on you crazy diamond. Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky. Shine on you crazy diamond. You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze. Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine! You reached for the secret too soon, you"
