5 stars What a glorious album, featuring THE best prog rock track, and I am sure everyone would agree.. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", then you get "Welcome To The Machine", "Have A Cigar" (Bravo Sir Harper!!) and "Wish You Were Here" followed by the other parts of the classic "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"

I know there are folk out there who have not heard this album, and I have to say, what you been doing?? get to the record shop straight away and purchase it!

Its gone down in prog folklore that whilst "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" was being recorded, Syd Barrett came into the studio.. and we all know who the track was all about.

Roger Waters has to be praised for writing perfect lyrics about a dear friend that he loved so much, it is one song that will certainly cause your emotions to rocket.

Brilliant stuff!
