Guaranteed goosebumps - everytime.,
This review is from: Wish You Were Here [2011 - Remaster] (2011 - Remaster) (MP3 Download)
This is undoubtedly one of Floyd's greatest pieces.
I don't think too much of Have A Cigar or Welcome To The Machine, although their use of synthesisers was beyond their years and the funky riffs are tasty, however...
Shine On You Crazy Diamond has some of the finest solos one will ever be graced with, at moments it ties knots in your stomach. Apparently Waters mulled over the phrase "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" for a long while before setting it in stone, enjoy this thoroughly revised and tweaked masterpiece about Syd Barrett.
And of course, the title track, Wish You Were Here. Probably Floyd's greatest song. Every single time I listen to this I get tormented by the tingles and goosebumps and throat-lumps that take over me, as if I'd never heard it before, every single time. It's a brilliant piece of music, have a listen.
