5 stars My second favorite album of Pink Floyd after "Dark Side of the Moon".The reason why I like most of the "Animals" than "Wish You Were Here" (which to my surprise the album is the band's most quoted here site) is the fact that there are endless passages such as "Shine on you crazy diamond" (do not get me wrong, I like that song). Besides, my third favorite song from the band is here: "Dogs" . This is my favorite epic they've done, and I feel light years ahead of "Shine on .." and a little better than "Echoes". The other songs are not behind, "Pigs (three different ones)"and "Sheeps" are two fantastic songs, the first endowed with a great humor and cynicism and the second a dark, dark song, Wright dominating with yours syinthesizers.The two parts of "Pigs on the Wing" open and close the album.Not are an epic like "Shine on ..."( need to stop talking about this song ...), but send a message positive amid the dark theme of the album (each one of the centerpieces discusses a kind of human being).

Although this is a fantastic album, it was here that we have the first records of authoritarianism in Waters' band, unfortunately,but nothing that takes the shine on this album.

5 stars of course!
