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. 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. 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.
