4 stars I like this album...I don't love it, but I like it. I do find it to be slightly overrated; due to its massive success, but at the same time I think it deserves all the press and fame it has. Personally I don't consider it to be that groundbreaking either, musically speaking, because if we should talk production wise. then it's not just groundbreaking, it´s a "before and after". Getting back to the music, it seems Floyd got less epic than their previous "Meddle" and the change is for the best, as I don't think they where mature enough to try such epic stuff, they needed of this album to "find themselves" in that sense, which of course would bring the marvelous "Wish you where here" and the dark "Animals" long tunes. Floyd really needed this album, to be able to expand latter on. In a way, this is a transition album, it´s not quite there with "WYWH", but it's a strong step in the right direction.

An absolute classic and a MUST have in any album collection, be it for prog fans, straight rock fans or whatever, this album can not not be in your collection!
