Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd
'Wish You Were Here' is the ninth studio album by Pink Floyd, released in 1975. Several songs critique the music industry, expressing alienation. Notably, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a tribute to Syd Barrett, who left the group in the wake of their debut album 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn'. The record was a commercial success, ranking on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" and "50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums" lists. Band members Gilmour and Wright proclaimed it their favorite Pink Floyd record, and many fans and critics alike regard it as their magnum opus.
