Like The Wall, and other Pink Floyd albums of this short era, if taken piecemeal (like radio play) it's almost annoying. However, if taken in as a whole, as it's meant to be, it's fantastic. It's hard to take songs like these out of context and have them mean the same thing. And yes, of course David Gilmour is incredible on this album. Isn't he always?

This was One of their best (although there is something about all of them i love). David's Solos are beautiful, original and well placed. I believe this albulm is about Syd Barret, and deserves to be the 2nd best albulm of all time (Dark Side of the Moon is No. 1)

Wish You Were Here is in my opinion Pink Floyd's best album. Dave Gilmore's brilliant piercing guitar is all over this album. He adds his slow blues style to band's psycodelic grooves to create a blend that is beautiful and unique. It is bookended by 'Shine On Your Crazy Diamond' which is a spectacular mostly-instrumental piece with flowing movements and great saxaphone work by Dick Parry. The title track is a radio staple. The other tracks are also very good. Wish You Were Here is a tribute to the groups long departed founder Syd Barret.
