5 stars Oh man! David G is my favorite guitarist in the world. Wish You Were Here is my favorite album. I "get" just how fantastic mid 70s Floyd was. But this folks is a masterpiece too. And forget that the lyrics are the best Waters ever wrote. Just listen to the music. Its complex, yet melodic, original and unique. Its fantastic. All I can say is when I first heard the album in 83 I didn't like it either. But after I "grew up" i couldn't believe the melodic/musical masterpiece that this really is.

I'm not a lyric guy, and the lyrics are not what sell me on this album. But I have to say, these are some of the best, most original, important lyrics, in Rock! The loss of the Post War Dream, is far more profound than anything Waters touched on before.

How Waters crafted some of this harmonically complex music is simply amazing. Look, I know he's a jerk, and in interviews he won't give the rest of their band their due. But he's a genius.

Dudes, give it a few listens, get over your need for Gilmore's guitar (although there are 3 or 4 cool Gilmore workouts on this album) and you'll realize that this is a classic. And "durable" too. I can play this album more than any other PF album without getting "burnt out" on it.

I'm right. If you don't like the album...sorry, you're wrong!
