4 stars On balance, probably Pink Floyd's most consistent album OVERALL but I think that PARTS of other albums are even better. There are no fillers or silly experimentation here, just 3 great and 2 good tracks. Welcome to the Machine, Have a Cigar and Wish you were Here are superb, their comparative simplicity adding to their effectiveness. Shine On parts 1 and 2 do not inspire in the same way (maybe a tribute to someone I don't rate at all colours my view?) but it's still good. Floyd are not instrumental virtuosos like Genesis or Yes but their compositions are often excellent. Here they don't quite hit the highest heights but the album is still worth buying. Not quite a masterpiece but very close. 4.5 stars and well worth buying.
