Following the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it's more mature and arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group's interplay and David Gilmour's solos in particular. The long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling.
