Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars ANIMALS finally sounds great!!! Oct. 3 2011
By r. f. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After many re-issues with no improvement in sound PINK FLOYD's / ANIMALS finally sounds excellent.
James Guthrie and Co. , did a fantastic job remastering 1 of PINK FLOYD's best albums.
They DID turn up the volume on this 2011 remaster and it is louder [but not too loud] than the 1992 and Japanese versions. It is even better than the OH BY THE WAY versions which were mostly a collection of older remasters.
What you hear on this 2011 remaster is more bass , more drums and a lot more clarity from each instrument. Very crisp at the high ends.
These are not the STEVE HOFFMAN kind of too quiet CDs nor are they as loud as LED ZEPPELIN : MOTHERSHIP CDs. They are the perfect balance between those two. No over compression. Just warm and joyful. I wish that JAMES GUTHRIE would remaster even more older CDs for other bands too.
I could apply this same review to the single CDs , The Dark Side Of The Moon , Wish You Were Here , Meddle , The Wall and A Momentary Lapse Of Reason , as well.
AMLoR , was not only remastered but it was re-mixed as well. If you loved The BEATLES remasters volume and sound , you will just love thses CDs.
Other reviewers at Amazon.ca have written just how great the PINK FLOYD : DISCOVERY box set is and going by the sound of these 6 CDs those reviewers are right on!
I know that many others and I will never have to buy these regular PINK FLOYD CDs again. They are that excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars pitchfork media Jan. 17 2008
Format:Audio CD
It begins somewhere for everyone. There's the first song that grabs your attention and seizes the imagination, the first album that demonstrates such overall strength and originality that it becomes something more for most listeners, just as there is the first kiss that awakens the soul and forever changes the vision.
I admit without qualm that it began for me with Animals. My brother was in college, and one day I went through his records and listened to the ones with the coolest covers. Animals fascinated me then as it still fascinates me today. It is the acute anthropomorphic fantasy, possessing a timeless quality that has thrust it into the category of "classic," though it may remain forever in the shadow of its more commercially successful older brother, Dark Side Of The Moon. Consisting of three tracks each longer than ten minutes and two tracks under two minutes, Animals is not for the attention- span- deficient. However, within this impenetrable fortress of radio- unfriendly tracks, we hear Dave Gilmour's guitars at their absolute best, get a full-on dose of Roger Waters' powerful lyrical imagery, and are presented with the worst elements of our own humanity- packaged in the skins of "Sheep," "Dogs" and "Pigs (Three Different Ones)". For those weaned on The Wall and Dark Side, you'll find Animals to be a whole new bag of feed. Where Floyd's two most recognizable albums made their mark with operatic aggression and fear, Animals deals in dirt- under- the- fingernails reality, the common smallness that simultaneously binds and repels us all.

I have a very soft spot for this album. It was the first thing I had ever heard by Pink Floyd and I loved it from the start. I was 17 years old and heard this on the radio. I went and bought the tape and played it daily for a month, annoying the hell out of my grandfather. I have all their other albums now of course, but I feel that this is genuinely the best of them despite the fact that it receives little acclaim as such. I like the harder edge that they have on this album, and would select Sheep as the stand out track on the strength of Gilmour’s guitar in the final section.

Pink Floyd - Animals
Oh my. Roger's mad about something.

Starting with DARKSIDE, Roger Waters began to gradually assume control of Pink Floyd, a reality of life that would culminate in their last Waters album, FINAL CUT. DARK SIDE and WISH YOU WERE HERE was at the beginning of this process.

ANIMALS, however, is where you could tell who had set the controls for the heart of the sun, and it sure as hell wasn't Gilmour, Mason, or Wright. Waters not only took control lyrically, but decided the whole album would be a concept record about the dividing people up in three classes as animals: pigs, the ruling class, sheep, people who do whatever they are told and have no backbone, and dogs, who are cutthroat and only in it for themselves, often subservient to dogs. Then there's the two brief recordings of "Pigs on the Wing", which is only two halves of the same song.

This is commonly thought of as Pink Floyd's `Punk album'. While as far as the music goes this definitely is not punk, the attitude and the lyrical anger definitely coincide with what was going on in the punk movement during the late 1970s. And make no doubt - Roger's angry. Real angry.

Going back to the longer song format, oddly enough after the great success of Dark Side and WISHING YOU WERE HERE, there were no real potentials for a single. The three main songs that formed the bulk of the album were LONG. "Dogs" is a 17 minute epic, and Roger just rails against the coatthroat nature of the doglike nature of people. This is one of Pink Floyd's best epics, both musically and lyrically, with several amazing instrumental passages. He likewise has some anger-fueled commentary about the sheep and pigs as well, and in the pigs track has a backward track section that is a parody of Psalms 23.

Animals is a 5 Star Record, but I did not find much of a difference in the sound between the 1992 remastered CD & 2011 remastered edition (they could have cranked up the volume). Read more
