Album Review
Telepathic Juan
Reviewed 2016-04-28 
In the tradition of classic rock orchestral tribute albums and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s ninth recording, Wish You Were Here, The London Orion Orchestra has issued a new classical version of the LP called Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here Symphonic. The album has Alice Cooper as guest vocalist on a couple of tracks and all the guitar parts are courtesy of Steven McElroy and David Domminney Fowler from The Australian Pink Floyd Show. Overall the album stays very close to the original recordings, especially the guitar arraignments, but it’s the full classical treatment on most of the compositions that makes this new rendition a riveting oddity.

RIYL: Pink Floyd’s Orchestral Tributes

FCC CLEAN!
Recommended Tracks: 1, 3, 4, 5 and 7

1. (5:02) *Wish You Were Here [Vocal] – Very respectful take on the original track. Alice Cooper sings.
2. (0:31) The Orchestra Tunes – Tuning epilogue.
3. (13:19) **Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Pt. I-V – Interesting take, full of traditional orchestral variations. Histrionic.
4. (7:08) **Welcome To The Machine – Trippy symphonic version with Alice Cooper on vocals.
5. (5:14) *Have A Cigar – Quite dramatic and sometimes grippingly excessive.
6. (4:50) Wish You Were Here [Instrumental] – What you expected to hear.
7. (13:03) **Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Pt. VI-IX – Another noteworthy take, full of traditional orchestral variations. Cinematic.
8. (1:24) Eclipse – Bonus Pink Floyd cover (Originally from The Dark Side Of The Moon record). Pleasant ending.
