From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars "Animals" came in 1977 after the two exceptional albums "Dark Side of the Moon" and "Wish You Were Here". It showed the band maybe under a lot of stress, but Roger Waters has the most dominance in song writing.

The music is simple, but the emotion evoked in the couple guitar chords and strumming in "Dogs" or the ominous keyboard intro to "Pigs" leave you with a grin. The compositions are tight and nicely structured, with spacey interludes and suggestive, metaphoric vocal passages. The bookend pieces "Pigs on the Wing" are excellent acoustic numbers, perfect intros and conclusion!

Solid Floyd album, and an excellent additon to any progressive music collection. A space rock essential.
