4 stars Another great album by the Floyd, and again close to masterpiece standard. The lyrics are biting and at time savage (Mary Whitehouse comes in for special treatment), describing three types of human beings in animal form. The music is excellent and on Sheep, they come closer to rocking than for a long time. I love the way the vocal transforms into a synth on this track by using a vocorder. There are some great guitar solos and fine keyboard work, especially on Dogs. It's angry, bitter stuff, probably the last of their great albums and probably the last before the inner conflict and power battles in the band ruined their collective cohesiveness. But (as noted by the previous reviewer) it's a bit too"in yer face" to merit 5 stars; it doesn't persuade, it bludgeons. Still an essential buy.
