4 stars Animals shows us the perfect transition album. On one hand we have the "sound and arregements" like of WYWH and on the other we have the more depressing concept of what the Wall would be. This album presents 5 songs...well, in fact the first and the last song "Pigson the wing" part I and II(the guitar in this songs is almoust the same as in WYWH...) could be count as one song split in two. Howerver this ones only work as an instruduction and as a closer to the album, the so to say "real" songs are the three in between...Dogs, Pigs (three different ones) and Sheep. Dogs is the longest of them all, a sort of epic suite. It has got some of Gilmour best solos. Pigs is ok, nothing spectacular. Sheep is probably the best song, strangly fast for Floyd it also has some nice guitar work. This is the most melodic song of the album.

All in all the album is quite also did great in the sold around 4 million albums in his days!!! Although that is not the most important thing...the important thing is the quality of the music...and the quality is pretty high...As always the art cover is excellent (a trademark in Floyd´s albums)...not a prog classic in my ears, although not that far behind...
