Review

Review Text Pink Floyd followed the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it's arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group's interplay and David Gilmour's solos in particular. And while it's short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Product Details

The year was 1975 and Dark Side of the Moon had just found British space rockers Pink Floyd crossing over into the mainstream thanks to such classic tracks as "Time" and "Money." Though expectations for their follow-up were near stratospheric and seemingly impossible to meet head on, history has been kind to Wish You Were Here, and many fans feel that it more than lives up to the promise delivered on their 1973 breakthrough. Now fans can take a critical look at Wish You Were Here with this release featuring highlights, rare archival interviews with the band, and the illuminating insight of numerous musicians, critics, and musicologists. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
