//Pink Floyd – „Wish You Where Here“ – 1975
Finally a first Pink Floyd album! “Wish you were here” (1975) is the ninth studio album of the Londoner band. It’s also David Gilmour and Rick Wright’s favorite one! The first song “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, is a tribute to the ex-founding member Syd Barrett and the genius behind the early works of the band. It’s also an instrumental masterpiece which last nearly 20 minutes! The album, quite sad and cold, is mostly dedicated to the absence of Syd Barrett, due to a too high LSD consumption. This melancholy is also a good way to remember that the band chose the name “Pink Floyd” in reference to two blues musician, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.
Between contemplative and mystical parts punctuated with synthesizer strokes, critiques of the music business (“Welcome to the Machine”) and conventional rock melodies (“Wish you were here”), this album is definitely one of the progressive rock’s highest peaks.
