5 stars Pink Floyd's greatest masterpiece

It is very difficult to add something new about an album with such a number of great reviews written before this one. "Wish You Were here" was my first prog LP, I bought it in 1976, listened to it hundred of times and is still in excellent condition. In fact is my favorite album and this feeling didn't change in the last 31 years.

All the tracks are great. In "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", Gilmour and Wright play in such a wonderful way that "perfection" is the only word to describe the song. The title track is brilliant, and sounds as if the guitars were played from the deepest part of the soul and not just with the hands. Every time I listen to the lyrics of this song, I feel a deep emotion very difficult to explain. The other two tracks are really good. In the original vinyl are positioned at the end of side one and beginning of side two and I always look at them as a breathe between perfection and........more perfection!!!!

I know that some people don't like Pink Floyd, and most of them say this is an overrated album. I can't really understand them. For those who don't know Pink Floyd, this is an excellent first approach and a must for every music lover.
