around 80 an older guy said he went to the Animals concert, thought the music was boring but the staging fantastic.  Then the police pig blew up one inflatable and the whole crowd gasped.  He got tickets to The Wall which was my first and only show

Pretty close to a perfect song... actually the whole of ANIMALS is pure perfection.  Thanks RP for playing this particular track.

Sensible policy—if you want a simple outdoor free range lifestyle with no one bothering you and no existential dilemmas—is to leave no witnesses to your excesses.

5th December 1976 - it's the 40th anniversary of the photo-shoot for the Animals album cover. That was a rather hectic 3 days for Hipgnosis!

Yep, I'd concur with that, though I'd add Meddle as a classic before Dark Side - the early psychedelic soft Floyd is severely underrated IMO. The Wall was quite literally self-indulgent, for all that its songs were well crafted. Animals was a cracker on its release and brutally polemical, and for all that some of its targets (such as Mary Whitehouse) are no more, it stands up well to age, I think.

Me, I've a lot of time for sheep, having seen gadzillions on my hillwalkies. Living a simple outdoor free range life, not bothering anyone, and free of existential dilemmas. Ok, so they mostly snuff it under the knife at the end, but as they don't have feelings of mortality it's but a sharp coda to their otherwise sedate lives. If they're roused they can give dogs grief - I've seen sheepdogs getting a bit of their own back now and again when their 'prey' combine.

Surely, the best Pink Floyd album, at least, in the classic formation: creative, unpredictable. Like animals.

Pink Floyd and The Beatles are my two very favourite rock bands.
I remember the feeling I had upon hearing the first sounds from "Animals" (on vinyl I'd purchased at a used record store), especially "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", and thinking "This is gonna be good".

Animals, TDSOTM, and WYWH (and for that matter Meddle, esp. Echoes) — equally wonderful PF albums ... aw heck, so is "The Wall"
But IMHO, PF w/o Waters just isn't very good.
Rogers is the lyrics man specifically, and Gilmour makes the music better.
They need each other ... like Lennon/McCartney, to make the great music.
By themselves, it's only "okay" ... and PF minus RW is campy lyrics and way too many drawn-out guitar solos.

I find both "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" as well as "The Division Bell" barely tolerable, and have no interest in the "new" PF album.
You can listen to the whole new PF album on Spotify to see if you're interested in purchasing it (yes, I still buy CDs).

Oddly enough, Dave Gilmour's first solo album is probably the best of the individual bandmember's efforts, but it still doesn't rank into any of my "fave album" lists. Hmm ... then again, I do like Syd's "The Madcap Laughs" and "Barrett".
It's a mixed bag.

God, I just love the end where Gilmour rips it up.  

What is great is that the lyrics *almost* end on a positive note as the sheep rise up and kill the dogs, then Gilmour's amazing guitar starting at that point sounds so celebratory.  Like a victory in the music.  Only Gilmour could do that.

In my car, on repeat play, is a bootleg of the Oakland 1977 show with Animals as the centerpiece. I saw the show that year somewhere else. 

What great music, and memories. (Yes, I wasn't too stoned to remember it. That would be a waste...)

5. The Final Cut - great Epilogue to The Wall. I'd rank it my second favorite album (right after the 4 listed above, which all tie for #1)

Like most Floyd, the lyrics work on a few levels. Sheep as the meek humans waiting to rise up, mostly waiting too long while following the one in front to an early demise- that's the one I go with, but there are other interpretations. Just love how it ends, though.  I mean for the song, not the sheep/humans. One of my favorites.

''The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.He makes me down to lie. Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul. He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places. He converteth me to lamb cutlets,
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger. When cometh the day we lowly ones, Through quiet reflection, and great dedication,
Master the art of karate. Lo, we shall rise up, And then we'll make the buggers *#@$*#@ eyes water.'
