3 stars Wish you where here of Pink Floyed is a record dedicated to their old comrad and founder of the band Syd Barrett, who was never-ending spacetrip after taking too many hallucinogens in the beginning of the 70's.

The record begins with Shine on You Crazy Daimond, which may be the best songs of Pink Floyed during their Symphonic Rock period wich startet with Dark Side of the Moon. Longstreched high guitartunes are coming out of my stereo - a sound very typical Pink Floyed. A slow and beautiful song ending with a saxophone solo.

The next song - Welcome to the machine - has a machinal sound, almost straight out of a factory. The song is good, but maybe a bit too long. It's all going very slow; good for a relax moment, but if you are not in the need of relaxing a bit booring.

The second side stays in the slow-motion theme. I begin slowly to appreciate the relaxing factor of this record. If my wifes asks for an easy record after work, I can always put this one on. I only don't see the brilliant record some describe. I thought about this record as being a bit better than A dark Side of the Moon, but still I cannot call this one essential for my collection. I prefer the earlier works of Pink Floyed. So, it will be 3,5 stars.
