5 stars I've always love Pink Floyd and have growned fond them since i was in middle school. now i'm 19 and love them even why didn't i ever get any of there albums. Well that all changed when i finally got in my opinion one of Pink Floyd's best WISH YOU WERE HERE. Now i love DARK SIDE OF THE MOON and i've heard and love COMFORTABLE NUMB, ECHOES, and ONE OF THESE DAYS but this album has def. shown just how great Pink Floyd are. First off the lyrics of this album are superb as WATERS wrote the lyrics talking about the music world, friendship, and a special lyrical tribute to the FLOYDIAN founding member SYD BARRETT. Second each band member does a surperb job on each track with both part of SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND displaying the smooth soloing of GILMOUR, some tight drums and bass by WATERS and MASON, and WRIGHT just shining on throgh this song especailly part 2. This song does really well with building up from the tiny sounds of music building its way to full band sound of greatness. Definitley a progger's epic favorite and if you haven't heard this song where the heck have you been. Then you have WELCOME TO THE MACHINE very effective song. i haven't had this album long and i may be wrong but unfortnately Mason doesn't play this tune but the rest of the band does very well especially WRIGHT on the keyboards as he does a surperb job using a lot of synth stuff through out the entire song. Next you have one of my favorite FLoyd track HAVE A CIGAR this song is just awesome with a nice boomy rhythmic bass line and a cool synth hook and Gilmour just blowing you away with a very bluesy yet proggy yet just awesome solo that ooooooh man i dunno i love it. Then comes another great acoutic Floyd dedication song WISH YOU WERE HERE this song just brings a tear to your eye with its awesome lyrcis and great acoustic stuff by Gilmour. plus the vocals here are superb as well. So if there is some old prog you wanna get into trust me WISH YOU WERE HERE is a great start as you've got stuff in this album that will definitely take you through a magic journey of pure progginess.
