A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Album – 6 of 10 – Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here

Wish You Were Here. Back in 1975 when this was released I wasn’t interested, it’s hard to know exactly when  I did listen to this, so there’s not a lot of historical placement or feelings of presence that I can add.

The burning man

This is the 9th Studio Album from Pink Floyd.

5 Tracks, 44:38 minutes long, it’s not something you could get bored of.

I have this on vinyl and I have the  original postcard that came with it. I’ve played this a few times on the vinyl player in the last two years and it is always pleasing and always played at the loud end of the dial.

For me this a less jarring, less jangle and disjointed album of music that seems to fit well together and weaves it’s own story, and of course their concept story and my take-away are at variance, because who reads about that and thinks its a good idea of theirs. So lyrically whilst this has meaning for the band there are a lot of personal insights that this offers up.

This followed on from Dark Side of the the Moon, and was followed by Animals, which is also very good. I think though for me this is the pick. The first album I brought was The Wall, which I still have and I’m not sure if it’s good or not to be honest. Like beer music is quite subjective.

Pink Floyd – Wish you were here, is on my list, because it is a beautifully crafted music journey.

The beer:

Well it’s a Behemoth Freedom Juice. A double IPA,  and 8% ABV beer of 70 IBU things and about 240 calories a serve size.

What was that you were saying? I couldn’t hear you over all this freedom. Enjoy the taste of freedom that’s what we say and what better way than this Double IPA with US Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo and Ekuanot hops

juicy is best used to describe this aroma, and you’ll note a different container, because I was too lazy to wash the trusty clear glass bottle this morning, and a man has to have a standby.

This is a hazy beer, and I like hazy beer, although MrsPdubyah is uncomplimentary.

You’ll note also that I can’t pour from the standby growler, I need to practice more.

That’s malty sweet and hop bitter in a wonderful combination of taste and balance. The bitterness keeps you interested and reminds you that this is a big hitting beer in terms of content and alcohol, the finish in this creeps up and sits there a dull thud at the back.

Welcome to the Machine and cry Freedom!!!!!!

Should I have had the Pdubyah-O-meter out this would have been a cheeky 9 with giant smile.

    Agreed that this is the best Pink Floyd album from that era. Now, I need to go back and listen to it. Sadly, I no longer have anything on vinyl.
