5 stars Pink Floyd's secound trick

This is Pink Floyd's secound very successful album. I think that it is a little bit weaker than Dark Side of the Moon but it is still a gem of progressive rock. You must only own two Floyd records. The Dark side of the Moon and Wish you were here. After this album Roger Waters took control over the band. Therefore, I like Animals and the Wall not so much like the previous albums. The cover is great, the music for sure and the lyrics as usual. Wish you were here is Pink Floyd's most varied album. You have a great spacy, epic song (Shine on you crazy diamond), another nice Space Rock song (Welcome to the machine), a little bluesy song (Have a cigar) and a folk ballad (Wish you were here).

All in all, this will be an important album in your collection.

Priamus | 5/5 |
