5 stars Uh oh! This is the second time that Peter Rideout and I agree completely! The concept of this album is as timely now - if not moreso - than it was in 1977. The separation of society into "Pigs" (corporate fat-cats and politicians who "control" everything), "Dogs" (money-obsessed financial types and mid-level managers who do the Pigs' biddings), and "Sheep" (the populace (blue-collar, white-collar, labor) that simply "goes along" with all of it, rarely showing the courage to attempt to change the system) is almost beyond brilliant. And the lyrics reflect that brilliance. But, as Peter notes, it is the music that gives this album its "edge." Gilmour's best work (with the possible exception of The Wall), and Wright's and Mason's best work, all ably "orchestrated" by Waters into a flawless whole. Noe of the most "beautiful" works in prog-rock.
