Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here"

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
1975/1996, Columbia

1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part One)
2. Welcome To the Machine
3. Have a Cigar
4. Wish You Were Here
5. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part Two)

I think Dark Side of the Moon is terribly overrated. I prefer Wish You Were Here much more than that one. I like the more commercial direction. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (both parts) are immediately more listenable and enjoyable than anything off Dark Side. If you listen to any classic rock station you'll hear the three middle tracks off this disc. Definitely a rock classic.

Useless Fact: I'm sure everyone already knows this but all of the songs were inspired by the addictions and mental meltdown of founding member Syd Barrett.
