4 stars I know that everything has been said about this album. No need to do a full scan, I'll just give my personal opinion. The intro to "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond" is superb, spatial, great build up to the part sung. The final with his saxophone solo is equally superb. The second title has always left me somewhat cold. I like the mix of modern sounds and acoustic (guitar) but I find that title a bit long and the singing is, I think, disappointing. Same with the title "Have A Cigar" The part sung is a little weak and musically it is good but far from fantastic. "Wish You Were Here" is the pop song of the album. The riff/ intro with the acoustic guitar is amazing, the lyrics are the best of the album with those of Shine on Your Crazy Diamond. Perfect pop song. The last title and second part of "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond" is just as interesting as it's first part, atmospheric as well but more varied. Very good instrumental parts. Great conclusion. Great album and accessible to the most.
