Product Description

Product Description

Pink Floyd 2011 Remasters

Amazon.ca

Although not in the same vein as the deliciously hallucinogenic earlier Floyd works such as Ummagumma and Dark Side of the Moon, Animals is innovative and musically diverse in its own right. Inspired in part by George Orwell's political fable Animal Farm, Roger Waters condemns the avarice and inequalities of capitalism, metaphorically and musically grouping humans as pigs, dogs, and sheep. The pigs are self-righteous hypocrites inflicting their beliefs on everyone else, the dogs greedy money-grabbers, and the sheep witless followers. Dark, cynical, and brilliantly composed, Animals is an ingenious and under-acknowledged album. --Naomi Gesinger

Jeez, where to begin?
Alright, first off let me say that I've been a hardcore Floydian for about 6 years now (hey, I'm still a kid, gimmie a break, eh?)
But after listening to every Floyd album numerous times, I say that THIS one is the absolute best they ever made. The very first time I listened to it, I felt Roger Waters' dark and cynical mood at the time, and the way he was able to channel it into an entire album is truly amazing. Yeah, I know that 5 songs doesn't seem like alot to get from an album, but you've got to remember: this is Pink Floyd, which means that those songs are going to be easily over 10 minutes long (*with the exception of the first and last, which are 1:25 each).
Roger Waters was growing increasingly angry about the current music "sellouts" of the time, and decided to sort people into three groups: Dogs; greedy money-grabbers, Pigs; people who force their beliefs on others, and Sheep; the stupid followers.
"Pigs On The Wing, Parts 1-2" are beautiful songs with just Roger and an acoustic singing softly about 'dogs needing a home', and 'shelter from pigs on the wing'. Both appear at either side of the album. Part one is kind of like a question, and part two is the answer.
"Dogs". Bloody hell, best song the Floyd ever wrote, in my opinion. The soloing, lyrics, and sound effects all make it into such an angry song, but at the same time you feel pity for the dogs that David is singing about.
"Pigs (Three Different Ones)" is a creepy song...in a GOOD way. The keyboard at the beginning gives it an eerie mood, and Rogers' profane lyrics add to the appeal of it (for me anyway, heh).
Finally, "Sheep" ends Rogers' group of animals. I really do love this song as well.

Wow! This album is absolutely awesome. While it is not quite the caliber of DSOTM and WYWH, I believe that this album ranks beside its counterpart The Wall. In fact Animals is somewhat like The Wall, except for the fact that it is much more sophisticated musically. The only reason that I do not give this album 5 stars is the length of the songs. I can understand 10 minutes for Pigs and Sheep, but 17 minutes for Dogs, come on. I am not saying that Dogs is a bad song. In fact, it is probably one of the best on this album. However, it does seem a bit long. PLEASE, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ALBUM IF YOU ARE JUST BEGINNING TO LISTEN TO PINK FLOYD. First, get albums like DSOTM (Darkside of the Moon for those who are confused) and WYWH (Wish you were here)under your belt before graduating to Pink Floyd's darker chapter AKA Animals and The Wall. I guarantee that if this the first PF album that you listen to, it will be the last. PF is much more sophisticated than many modern and retro bands, so please give it a chance. You have to listen to their albums more than once to really enjoy them.
As for the songs on Animals, here is a small summary of each one:
1. Pigs on the Wing: A very good, small intro for the three songs following it. The acoustics here sound a lot like Wish You Were Here, the cover song for the album of the same title. The lyrics here are nice but a little confusing. You will understand them by the end of the album.
2. Dogs: An extremely good song. The guitar here really demonstrates Gilmour coming into his own. This is the beginning of great PF guitar songs that would peak at The Wall's Comfortably Numb.
3. Pigs (Three Different Ones): Great song. However, the pig sounds throughout it are somewhat scary, as they seem to pop out in unlikely places.

Animals, as many other people have said in their reviews, is terribly underrated as an album. Containing many long tracks, Animals is an album focused on current events at the time of it's release. The album contained lyrics that compared animals, such as sheep and pigs, to humans. Animals portrays humans as capitalistic and greedy. Roger Waters wrote the majority of Animals.
A very dark album, Animals only has 5 tracks, but the length of these tracks makes up for the shortage of tracks on it.
"Pigs on the Wing (Parts 1 and 2)" is sung by Roger Waters. It is a very nice song. "Dogs", which is my favourite song on Animals, and one of my favourite all-time Floyd songs, features great guitar riffs, chords, solos, and melodies by David Gilmour. My dog usually barks when he hears the song "Dogs" because of the sounds of the dogs in the background. Then he freaks out barking when he hears the distorted and modified sounds of dogs barking, done by sound effects. "Dogs" is 17 minutes of great music, with Gilmour taking the lead vocals for the majority of the song. Special keyboarding is done in "Dogs" by Rick Wright, who does some more outer-space keyboard sounds. I have to say this again: David Gilmour's guitar is just too good throughout Animals and especially "Dogs". "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" is a very depressing sort of song, with wierd, grim noises but cool sound effects. It's a great 11 minute and a half song that ends with (once again) a sweet David guitar solo. "Sheep", a 10 minute and a half song, is another AWESOME song with (sorry, BUT IT'S TRUE!) great guitar throughout. Pink Floyd is written all over "Sheep".
