  • Awesome record. "Dogs" is my second favorite Floyd track after the epic "Echoes". It has some of Gilmour's best guitar work ever. The other songs are amazing too and I like the overall dark atmosphere around this one. It's not my favorite Floyd record though; I still prefer Wish You Were Here, Meddle, Dark Side and their debut but it's still amazing.

  • "Dogs" is in fact my choice for best Floyd song. Great lyrics, great vocals, great lyrics, great guitar... just a stunning piece of music. As good as it is, though, it doesn't overshadow the rest of the record, all of which is excellent. This has long been my favorite Pink Floyd album and it probably makes my top 10 of all time.
  • 'Dogs' and 'Pigs' are close to be called best songs in their career. Except, of course, 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond'., which simply stays number one.
  • J'ai la version de 1994 ^_^
  • 'Worst album by Pink Floyd, nothings happens' We can't be listening to the same album... [2]
  • My humble review of Pink Floyd - Animals (1977):
  • Second best album behind Wish.
