4 stars Pink Floyd back on track after the tame hit album that was Wish You Were Here. They're back on track because this time it sounds as if they're fully behind what they are doing again.

That is to say at least one member of the band must have been behind it, since this is clearly Roger Waters' game. It's his song writing, his vision, his drive. But the great thing is that Waters' thematic focus is backed-up by the very strong guitar and keyboard work. The two major forces in Pink Floyd's appeal that would disappear almost completely on the next two albums.

Animals is one of those few coherent Pink Floyd albums that flows naturally from start to end without weaker cuts, pointless experimentalism or sloppy filler songs. The first half of Pigs is a bit repetitive maybe but nevertheless it's my personal favourite together with Meddle and Live Gumma. 4.5 stars
