This was the first ever Floyd album I listened to, and has to be the album I'd take to a deserted album. It just oozes that Pink Floyd aura I know and love. The music, I would define, as Psychedelic: the synthesiser effects is Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Welcome To The Machine add to the over all marvel of this album.

The lyrics, like a lot of Floyd's post-Barret albums, are about Syd, the original frontman of Pink Floyd. Remember when you were young? You Shone like the sun? Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Syd Barret; the Crazy Diamond. This gets fairly repetative in your CD collection, the refrences to Syd, so although the lyrics are inspiring to say the least.
Overall Impression — 10
My favurite song from the album is Wish You Were Here. It is the first song I got guitar tabs for and is still my favurite song to play. I realy love the way that when I listen, I just immediatly switch off, relaxe. I love to listen to Floyd when doing essays or papers and this just gives me the insiration to do this.
