4 stars A lot more dark angry sounding album then Wish You Were Here. This is where Roger Waters starts to take over and Richard Wright has stopping contributing to song writing until the Division Bell. Still a fantastic album, Dogs and Sheep are brilliant 10/10 tracks absolutely falwless, with great spacy sounds at the climaxs of both songs. Where this album suffers is on Pigs which although is a great song, is over long and gets a bit boring . Although the pig noises are excellent. Dogs has a great barking sounds courtesy of Richard Wright's keyboards a long side some real dog's barking, I also like Gilmours guitar work on this one, very atmospheric in parts.The two quieter pieces Pigs on the Wing parts 1 and 2, serve as a kind of introduction and epilogue to the album, they sound some what ironic in their relative piecefullness and serenity compared to the other three angry epics. I think that this is the last great Floyd album ( I find the Wall much too miserable). The lyrics are based on George Orwell's novel Animal Farm, with the animals being analogies of certain groups of people in society.It is a solid four stars from me, an excellent but slightly flawed album.
