5 stars I'm so glad that this album is rated above Dark Side on this site. I love Dark Side, but this album is just a bit superior in my opinion. The Shine On suite is nothing short of genius, and the best work that Pink Floyd ever created. Wish You Were Here is, of course, a classic song, but my favorite song on the album, besides Shine On, is Have a Cigar. That guitar riff is just so freaking funky and cool. Welcome to the Machine is positively haunting, though maybe just a bit long. The electronic effect noises in the song are just incredible though. I don't know what else to say besides the fact that I think that this is Pink Floyd's best, most polished album, even if it that results in an absence of some of the interesting risk taking that is present in the early Floyd catalog.
