4 stars I guess this album has a theme of remembering now late Syd Barrett, or at least the lyrics of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond part one" and "Wish You Were Here" are in my opinion related with this theme. These are also the best songs on this album for me. "Welcome to The Machine" and "Have A Cigar" are also ok, but not musically very interesting I fear. The good elements of this album make it still very recommendable purchase. The songs are placed on the album in similar manner as on King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic" record, as the big main composition is divided to two sections, and they surround the more casual songs by opening and closing the album. The best personal memory about this album for me relates to an event, when I escaped a stupid party via taxi, and the first track was being played from the nocturnal radio channel - I approved from the driver's request to boost the volume to the top.
