The Truth
5 stars Ever since Pink Floyd came into my life it's all been about music that took me away and astounded me, made me inquisitive and inspired my own art and most importantly they taught me to look for music I enjoy, to not be held back by boundaries such as genres and subgenres but to explore wherever my heart led me. And upon hearing this album again, how can Pink Floyd not be the cause?

Wish You Were Here was the second Pink Floyd album I ever bought (one of the first albums I ever bought actually) and it came after I was heavily addicted to and amazed by Dark Side of the Moon. There was a long gap between those two album because I felt that that was the epitome of music, that it couldn't get any better. I was right, nothing I've heard has been better than finally "getting" Dark Side but Wish You Were Here definitely made me more adventurous in the music I bought. I no longer cared about track length or whether the structure of the song was simple and various other amateur details, I just cared about how the music made me feel and Pink Floyd never disappointed. They filled me with emotion I had never felt while listening to music before and it made me proud to find something I truly loved. Pink Floyd made me who I am today.

Now, everything that could possibly be said about this album has already been said (just look at the number of reviews!) and pretty much everyone gets just what this album accomplished, it took music to levels that had never been seen before, not even of Dark Side of the Moon. The music on this record is magical, the lyrics are a thing of beauty and the combined product is an amazing listening experience.

A masterpiece in every possible way, one of the albums that changed my view of music.
