The main reviewer of this album must be a techno-freak or something, but to the rest of us who like Pink Floyd this is an AWESOME album. I have owned this album for over 6 years and I still love it. Cluster one is a memorable piano/guitar opening which reminds of an elegant car ad. The best song on the album is high hopes, which embraces the atmosphere of the whole album. This album is really one of the only ones I have ever listened to that manages to take me to a different world (it reminds me of green wetlands). Other songs that are very good on it is A great day for freedom, Take it back, and especially Coming back to life. If only I can find more music that are as freshly unique and masterfully crafted!
Shine On You Crazy Diamond is possibly the most dear piece of music of all times for me but it could very well be The Animals and not Wish You Were Here which is my favorite Pink Floyd album overall. It might have to do with the time distortions they have loaded this one with. Pigs On The Wing are such a spiritual boost. Dogs might be my favorite song here and it used to freak me out how many times while listening to this song back in 1977 and 1978 in my mother's place, with large dogs running around the house, I used to look out the window, forgetting I was hearing the music. And no, I did not do any drugs back then. A few days ago while on a business trip in Europe I was fortunate enough to attend a rock festival in Freising, Germany, where next to the Sylvan episode (the most amazing show by a vocalist I could ever imagine) I had experienced the complete Animals tour repertoire done by RPWL.; it was spectacular. It is interesting that 2 of my 7 most favorite present rock bands, RPWL and Mostly Autumn both came to life as Pink Floyd cover bands, and another one Porcupine Tree is also very heavily Pink Floyd influenced. If you love Pink Floyd and are searching for other great bands, please make sure you know all 3. Another great song on the album is Pigs, but that only leaves one other song, Sheep and that was the starting song of Pink Floyd's Animals tour. Basically it is a great album with phenomenal music and great lyrics.
I was wary of this CD as Roger Waters was not part of it.
However, I think this is a great CD. The music is interesting and its haunting nature is a throwback to the Echoes era.
The Wall and Animals have an anger in them that I don't enjoy listening to. So I figured Wish You Were Here would be the last Pink Floyd CD I'd like. I was pleasantly wrong.
