Product Description

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

It was a gift for my son, who is an avid vinyl album collector. Although it took a few weeks to arrive (came from Seattle across country), it arrived safely. There were stickers from radio stations that came with it (added bonus) as well as it was a brand new pressing and not used as noted. He is now enjoying the album.

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 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.

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 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!

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.
