Mystery
5 stars My favorite Pink Floyd album, Animals manages to separate society into three distinct classes: dogs, pigs, and sheep. The politicians, in correspondence to the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell, are the pigs; the dogs represent the higher up, well-to-do business men who seek gain at other's expenses; and the sheep represent the lower and working classes.

The lyrics are very sarcastic, if not straightforward, in their criticisms of these classes, harshly condemning the businessmen in Dogs especially. The music too is a splendid tapestry of sounds, evoking beauty while simultaneously creating enrapturing atmospheres which seamlessly soar.

The album isn't exactly even in my opinion; Dogs and Pigs are better than Sheep to me, but even still they're all fantastic both on their own and on the album to deliver the concept. It manages to be a grand musical accomplishment while still delivering a timeless message of corruption in a hierarchical society that does not foster companionship and love.

Mystery | 5/5 |
