4 stars I find I listern to 'Animals' more than 'Wish you were here' 'Animals' is a colder album, and more narrow in scope and appeal, but for some morbid reason it appeals to me! The general theme of the album is the likening of different types of people to certain kinds of animals. Sheep, for instance following one another, Dogs taking what they can get, pigs, fat cat types..you get the picture. The album is laced with bitterness and a sense of dissapointment, like much of Floyds music, but it also IMO has some of Dave Gilmours finest guitar work, and some of Roger Waters finest lyrics. This is notable on 'Dogs' a 17 minute epic of doom and despair, with striking dark imagery of being 'broken by trained personel' and 'dragged down by the stone!' The album may be dark, but it makes me smile, and I always feel very satisfied after listerning to it. Perhaps that says more about me than it does the emotional state of the band...

The soloing is excellent. The quality of music consistent throughout, and the production pretty good. Its classic late '70s Floyd, embellished by the classic cover featuring Battersea power station.
