5 stars Best Song: Dogs - Highlights: Pigs On The Wing (Parts 1 & 2); Dogs; Pigs (Three Different Ones); Sheep

My favourite album of all time. Lyric-wise, it's as good as Roger Waters ever got (the period comprising Animals and The Wall is his best, in my opinion). Musically, it's perfect. There are no overlong songs, everything seems to fit perfectly: the music, the artwork, the lyrics, man... thank God Rog didn't let anyone contribute more than what was necessary. Gilmour is as good as he can be, and both Rick and Nick are right where they should be: backing up. About the songs: Pigs On The Wing (Parts 1 & 2) is a beautiful acoustic love song, with some of my favourite pieces of Rock lyrics ever. Dogs is a 17 minute long suite with an acoustic rhythm, lyrics drenched in hatred and sarcasm and cool guitar solos. In the middle it has a break, featuring some sound effects, but this time, unlike on the much-praised "Dark Side Of The Moon", they don't get in the way of the music. Instead, they help creating a mood. Pigs is the irony song, funny, smart and having the best lyrics of the entire album (hey, perhaps the best Floyd lyrics ever). Musically it's a little bit (millimetres here) worse than the others, but its still great. Sheep is a really cool rocker, very angry, very fast, the song that gave this album the nickname of "Punk Floyd". Overall, it's a masterpiece in every level. The best Pink Floyd album and certainly one of the best Rock albums ever.
