5 stars Beautiful album. Based on George Orwell's book, Animal Farm, the album criticizes the hypocrisy, corruption and conformity of the world, with direct critics to Mary Whitehouse. The criticism combined with the great space rock made by Pink Floyd make this album a truly masterpiece. Pigs on the Wings ? Part 1 (1:25) -> Great acoustic song. Roger Water revealed a few years ago that It was a love song for his girlfriend, but you can interpret the way you want.

Dogs (17:03) -> Amazing song. Amazing guitar work, great synthesizers, nice drum work, perfect bass-line and strong vocals. The lyrics tell the story about the dogs, who are "above" the sheeps, but subordinate to the Pigs. In my opinion, the best track of the album.

Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:25) -> Great song. The instruments in this song follow a line of sound, until the David Gilmour's solo at 9 minutes, but still a great song. Now the lyrics tell the story about the masters of society, the Pigs. Direct critics for Mary Whitehouse, leader of a "moralist movement".

Sheeps (10:25) -> Powerful vocals, and great line of instruments. David Gilmour's solo at the end is amazing. Now the lyrics tell the story about the sheeps. They're the "ordinary people", and blindly accept what the Dogs and the Pigs say.

Pigs on the Wings ? Part 2 (1:23) -> It's an acoustic song, continuing the first one line.

Catalani | 5/5 |
