3 stars Well, deffinitly a good album. Wish you were here is a good song, as is Shine on you Crazy Diamond. My problem with this cd is how boring some of it is. And I like long songs with allot of instrumentals to. But with the first eight minutes of the first Shine On, nothing worthwhile happens, at all. That's eight minutes of useless music. When the verse hits, the song becomes very good until the closing passage where we get more boring Pink Floyd noodling. Also Have a Cigar, is just sort of, there. No opinion. Welcome to the Machine is a good song, but nothing speacial. So overall, a good listen. Very good lyrical moments and melodies, but I've said it once and I'll say it again, Pink Floyd does not have the talent with there instruments to pull off long instrumental moments in songs. They should have stuck to what they were good at, writing melodies and than singing them with the instruments as a back up to the voice. In Floyd the guitar/drums/bass should never steal the show.
