5 stars The first thing that i love about this album is the comparision of people to animals. The first song, "Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 1" may not be a real standout song but it starts the concept for a great peace of art. Then comes "Dogs" with Gilmour singing those memorable lines. The guitar work along with the lyrics for the song is brilliant. But to me the real great peace is, "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", the way Roger compares people to pigs. To me "Sheep", is my third favorite track. I really do enjoy it though. "Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 2", closes the album, but to me i think it's a great ending to a great album. When i went to see Roger perform the Wall in 2010, during "Run Like Hell", the projections on the wall would refer back to Animals. It would show a dog and say "I Kill", then a pig and say, "I Lead", then it shows a sheep and says, "I Follow". But anyway I would say this is one of my all time favorite albums.
