5 stars This album may be one of Pink Floyds masterpiece (they have lots for me), and is one of my favourites album, if is not my favourite one, from, my favourite band.

Lets analize it song by song and see what happens:

Shine you crazy diamond part one (10/10): The first masterpiece of the album, wich is also the first part of a complete masterpiece. A beautiful song, full of magic and energy.

Welcome to the machine (8.5/10): An interesting song, quite powerfull and also of course psychodelic, is not even there the best song of the album, although I think is the worst of it, and its really great!

Have a Cigar (9/10): A very good song, with really interesting lyrics, its made just to sit down and enjoy, and, last but not least, the perfect end of this album.

Wish you were here (10/10): The other masterpiece of the album, a perfect song, one of the most emotionals I have ever heard in my life, maybe the most one. Gilmours guitar have the hole domain of it, and his voice and lyrics reach a perfection that its really hard to believe.

Shine you crazy diamond part two (10/10): The last masterpiece of the album, and the second part of the first one. Just the end of a masterpiece that leaves a sign in the whole music history.

Finishinf the review its important to add that this album was a dedication to the (unfortunately) now dead genious and creator of Pink Floyd, Syd Barret. A perfect album, what Barret always deserved.

Nash | 5/5 |
