"We're just 2 lost souls swimming in a fishbowl (year after year)."_____Even though Wish You Were Here was hardly what I would've expected to hear from the 70's, psychedelic-rockers, Pink Floyd, as a follow-up album to the mega-successful Dark Side of the Moon, that doesn't mean to say that I didn't like it._____ On the contrary, I was far from being disappointed by this offering, but, all the same, I will say that Wish You Were Here (generously laced with Waters' cynical lyrics) clearly lacked the overall "omph!" and hard-driving edge that Dark Side of the Moon delivered._____ With there being moments that were almost hypnotic in nature, this music-disc was Pink Floyd (in 1975) in a much more mellow and low-keyed frame of mind. And, hey, that's OK!

Your pastor started singing " Another Brick In The Wall" about a ear ago. But get this, the whole congragation that was 30 and over started singing with him! Luv U, Pastor Grant!!!!!!!!

For my money, "Wish You Were Here" is the greatest album Pink Floyd ever made. With all due respect to "Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here" is more tuneful, more hypnotic, more immersive. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," which tells the sad story of founding Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett's mental breakdown, is both beautiful and heartbreaking. Two other songs here, "Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar," are scathing indictments of a music industry that even in the mid-1970s was increasingly driven by corruption and greed. And the title track, co-written by Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and PF bassist Roger Waters, is nothing less than one of the greatest songs in the band's repertoire -- wistful and irresistibly melodic.

Short and sweet, this is one of Pink Floyd's best albums. A perfect example of progressive rock. Highly recommended.

Classic Floyd! The title track is beautiful and the epic split song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is to be experienced! The great part is on a cd you can hear the whole thing without any pauses through the whole album! Too awesome!
