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.

"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

"possibly Pink Floyds peak - How do you follow up one of the most popular and critically acclaimed albums of all time...simplify! This is an almost perfect balance of Gilmour and Waters TBH I think they should have just cut the album after the title track as the rest is largely redundant"
