3.5 greatdedex | February 21st 20

Atmospheric art rock stuff. It's just, uuuuuuh, a long journey fusing post-punk, psych shit, jazz rock and ambient. There's no clear standouts, because the album is truly constructed as one long flow. And that makes for an interesting record to analyze: the dude pours all his influences into one album, without letting any genre take over another one. All tracks have multiple influences and can't fit into a specific box. More importantly, it reveals itself after several listens: what seems obnoxious at first turns out to be obvious. However, one can't help but feel underwhelmed, as it takes quite an effort to fully plunge into it. Pedantic mofos might say good records require some effort, yet Wish You Were Here is as immediate as it is timeless. It's difficult, but rewarding to some degree: when it's beautiful, you stop everything you're doing to fully immerse into it. Shame the outcome is not totally on par with the effort made by the listener. Weird album made by a weird dude. 3.5

I'm usually not into music this faint and relaxed, but this album is just such a great atmosphere record. Really easy to get lost in, it almost reminds me of beat tapes like Slauson Malone's "A Quiet Farwell."
