3 stars 'Have A Cigar' - Pink Floyd (Single)

Out of Pink Floyd's 'masterpieces,' I would have to say 'Wish You Were Here' is the one I like the least. I still find it quite enjoyable and better than most albums you're going to find out there, but it just seemed a bit too inconsequential for it's own good. The two 'epic' length tracks where definately the highlights, and the three songs in between had mixed reactions from me. I really like the title track, 'Welcome To The Machine' is decent with it's vocal harmonies, and 'Have A Cigar' is decent too, but not a real favourite.

Here we get 'Have A Cigar' in all of it's glory and a significantly shortened version of 'Shine On' which essentially takes out most of the jamming, which was the highlight of the track. 'Have A Cigar' is a good track when you take into account the commentary it is having on the music industry itself, and 'Shine On' is still an enjoyable trip, but I would rather listen to these on the album itself.
