5 stars You know how there are good albums, there are masterpieces and then there are those very rare ones, the perfect ones? Well, this is one of them, a perfect album. PERFECT! You can´t get better than this, I just can't see how that would be possible. By far the most balanced one also, Waters and Gilmour never had so much chemistry (which is a very weird thing to say, as they were about to break up while recording this one). From the epic and atmospheric Shine on you crazy diamond, which has one of the best build ups ever, I loooooooooove that keys intro, so simple and yet so effective; to Waters first step into total negativity and madness that is Welcome to the machine, to the rockier and ironic Have a cigar, to the most beautiful song ever recorded by them Wish you were here. this is perfect from start to finish. Really a good idea to divide Shine on, a smart move. Waters as always shines as a lyricist and the rest of the band plays some of their best stuff. is there something I have not said yet? Ah yes; IT´S PERFECT!
