One of the best albums of all time...

Friday, October 28, 2005
I'm going to go on record here as stating that Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" album is one of the greatest of all time. There are no "throwaway" songs - in fact, there's no low point to the album at all. How can you go wrong with a 5-song album where 40% of the songs are titled "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"?

Each song has its treaures. In "Have a Cigar", the music executive asks the band "Oh by the way... which one's Pink?" And while the title track is a wonderfully mournfeul song, the song(s) "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (about former band frontman Syd Barrett is (are) a true highlight, with soul-wrenching guitar permeating almost 26 minutes of song.

Anyway, if you haven't listened to it, do so.
