5 stars There are many who would argue that this recording excels above that of Dark Side of the Moon. There are many who would argue the opposite. I will take the middle ground on this one, which means that everyone can feel free to disagree. In terms of overall concept and package, Dark Side of the Moon is better. With respect to musical ideas and execution, Wish You Were Here wins hands down. Take your pick. As for me, this is Richard Wright's best keyboard/synthesizer work and Gilmour's best guitar work. As with Dark Side of the Moon, this recording has lots and lots of reviews. Seeing as that is the case, I will not elaborate further on what has already been said numerous times and incredibly well. But, if you are first getting into progressive rock of this era, this is a true "must-have" recording.
