5 stars Next to Genesis's The Lamb and King Crimson's In The Court, Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here holds a special place in my heart. How lucky I was to grow up at the sound of these records ! Anyway, this is an absolute masterpiece and I very rarely use this word. If you really want to have an insight in prog rock, well you simply must at least have listened to this album, or better still, buy it. As far as I'm concerned this is Pink Floyd's best. The introduction to Shine on you crazy diamond has perhaps Gilmour's best guitar solo played over a delicate layer of synths. Have you ever tried to sing or whistle a guitar solo ? Well, this is one to remember for more than a lifetime. The use of synthesizers on Welcome to the Machine down to the acoustic guitar on the eponymous title that you can try to play on your guitar at a campfire, all the tracks are to be remembered. And give your kids a favour : make them listen to this album. They'll thank you for it.
