I love 'Animals' so much I can't even tell you. For one thing, I love the singing, which is not the first thing that usually comes to mind when I think of Pink Floyd. I love how 'stone' echoes eternally. I love the conceit; it's one of the very few concept albums where the idea doesn't intrude on the mysterious beauty of the music. I love the melodies, they are indelible. I love the lyrics, especially 'Dogs.' Whenever I hear that song I think, oh God, my poor father. I LOVE the riff at the end of 'Sheep.' I love every fucking thing about this album, including the tremendous album cover.
I can get behind this, agreed about the cover, it's the only Floyd album I have on vinyl and the gatefold sleeve looks so great.
This poll inspired me to give The Final Cut a go - absolutely hated it (too much shouty/pained Roger) but would be interested in hearing a fan's view. Also listened to the 'More' soundtrack, which was ok.

The two who voted for Momentary Lapse, I'd like to see you in my office after work.
Have we ever polled Roger Waters solo albums?
