4 stars "You there, pigman, haha, charade you are!"

Now, I perhaps might say PINK FLOYD is my favorite band, having memorized most of the lyrics of their discography. "Animals" is perhaps their darkest release, a harsh political and social commentary with lyrics by Roger Waters. From the bursting synthesizers to the pumping guitars -- this album is not to be listened to as background music. This is not only a masterpiece of progressive rock, but perhaps one of the most underrated albums in music.

'Dogs' deals the businessmen: the backstabbers, the ruthless and dangerous. At 17 minutes it is the longest track on the album, however, it gets lost somewhere in the middle. The first five minutes and the last five minutes are the most solid. 'Pigs (Three Different Ones)' is the politicans: the fakes, the charades, the good for nothings. It is possibly the heaviest track on the album, and brings back memories of the PINK FLOYD album "Obscured By Clouds". 'Sheep" deals with the lowest class of society: the people who follow each other, the people who are living their life away.

I recommend this album for, quite frankly, anyone who listens to music at all! This would be a five star album: the message is clear, the music is good, however, it gets lost somewhere in between, and begins to stray.
