Overview

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.

 BOYCOTT THIS BAND. ROGER WATERS AND NICK MASONS ARE ANTI-SEMITES WHO ARE BOYCOTTING ISRAEL. FIGHT BIGOTRY. Anyone who sides with Waters and Mason should go live in a Muslim country like Afghanistan or even the Palestinian territories - the darling of Waters' - where Christians are being murdered and churches burned. And Mr. Waters should lead the way. Join the Boyles in Afghanistan, prisoners since they were arrested for the crime of hiking in Afghanistan.
