5 stars Write a review of my favourite album of all time is very difficult, the intention to be objetive to that piece of art is impossible.

In 1977 Pink Floyd get born a lot of ideas, always their music want to express existencial ideas of the human race, the mind, but Animals look through the society and talk about that metaphorically. The music of this album is complex in some parts and ingenious in the others.

In the first part, the side A, there are two songs, one folk and softly: Pigs on the Wing part 1, and later begins the masterpiece, the most important song of the album: Dogs. This song is a lot of emotions, lot of moments and the composition have a particularity, David and Roger sing, one in the first part as lead singer and later the 12 minute, begins the lead voice of Rog, in represent of a dog character. Incredible! Amazing piece of Floyd's music.

Later, in the second part there are three songs, Pigs open the side B with more heavy rock, and the voice of Roger sound more stronger and high. In the middle of the song, the effects of the pig's voices are very interesting. Sheep is the next song and is absolutely complex in moments, the end is epic! David creates wonderful figures in the guitar at the end. The end of the album came with Pigs on the Wing part 2, softly like the first part, but sounds different with the words spoken in the end "A shelter from pigs on the wing.."

This album in the history of Rock is absolutely underrated and this is embarrasing..
