This is one of my favorite PF albums. I love the harmony lead guitars in “Dogs”.
My favorite pf album , that slower mid solo in Dogs is probably my favorite gilmour solo
One of my favorites too and I feel underrated by many too. One of my go to PF albums when I’m in the mood for PF. My copy gets far more play than The Wall.
I was coming to post about how great the guitar on "Dogs" is.
As a lifetime Pink Floyd fan here (Piper through Wall), Animals was always second or third tier for me. Great individual musicianship all around, but the songs are too long and tediously repetitive. Sheep is the track I like best. Not too lengthy, energy drives it from start to finish, and Roger's vocal is among his best performances on any Floyd recording, IMO. If all the tracks were like Sheep, Animals would be a first tier album for me.
Telecaster, I think.
I'm just remembering an old Guitar Player mag David Gilmour feature/interview.
When David was asked what Pink Floyd guitar playing he was most happy with ( hell, all of it!) he cited his playing on " Dogs"
But he has one hell of a ' perfect guitar" legacy.
My favourite line is from - Pigs three different ones ... If you're of an age over here we all know who he was referring to:
You f______ up old hag, ha ha charade you are
But for guitar work I think Sheep is the outstanding track.
I always forget how good Animals is. The Wall has a few stand-out tracks but to me Animals is a much more satisfying listen overall.
They threatened to put out a 5.1 release of Animals for years, but it never happened. I wish they would have.
Look up Roger Waters' 2016 Mexico City concert.
It's not as good as "The Wall" in Berlin but what is?!
We saw John Prine in Hanover, New Hampshire. It was his warmup set for Newport. Roger Waters sat in with him.
First album I bought way back when. Great stuff!
A totally underrated album.
This is probably my favorite PF album also. Not many others seemed to feel that way back in the day. I can remember recommending it to numerous people and nobody else ever seemed to be impressed like I was.
I saw the Roger Waters solo tour supporting Radio KOAS in (probably) 1987, shortly after his departure from Pink Floyd, during the time he was disputing the others’ use of the Pink Floyd name.
Waters put on a great show even then. He played many older tracks including much of the Wall, leaving no doubt “which one’s Pink.”
High energy from start to finish; enthusiastic encores. No hint of the cynicism toward fans and band mates Waters famously displayed on stage in the mid 70s.
After the end of the Floyd golden age Waters and the Gilmour crew were each better when separated from each other.
Saw this concert live in Anaheim,Ca back when. Wow, the memories.
I saw that tour, and then Gilmour's Pink Floyd a couple months later. Waters' show blew Floyd away. It was still cool seeing 3/4 of Pink Floyd on stage and amazing to hear Gilmour playing those songs, but it was basically like a PF cover band with a big effects budget.
This was one of the first bootlegs I ever heard-
Freakin' great album. Depressing... This album for me is the last best Floyd. Really turning into Roger Waters here....
My cousin and I drove to Milwaukee for that concert. It was awesome. They played all of Animals, all of WYWH, and most of DSOTM.
Roger Waters *accidentally* erased the original 3-part guitar harmonies in Dogs. Gilmour had to recreate it. This is according to Gilmour.
