5 stars The song Wish You Were Here is Pink Floyd's greatest hit(maybe after another brick in the wall). Many People who are not into prog, don't know what they are missing here. one of the greatest gems in rock music ever. The album starts with the heavenly Shine On You Crazy Diamond parts 1-5 which clock at almost 14 minutes. David Gilmour's guitar playing on this one are truly amazing, making him one of the greatest ever. Afterwards we got my favorite track on the album "Welcome to the Machine", very psychedelic and "pink floyd-ish" as we all learn to love. then we got "Have a Cigar" a nice rocking tune with great bass from Roger Waters, not their best but very nice. The next one is "Wish you were Here", just listen and fall in love with it. The grand finale is the second part of Shine On You Crazy Diamond parts 6-9. What a marvelous finish to a great album. No wonder it's on of PA top 10 albums. You can't have a prog collection without this one. Simply great!
