Animals is a concept album, focusing on the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain, and was a change from the style of the band’s earlier work. The album was developed from a collection of unrelated songs into a concept which describes the apparent social and moral decay of society, likening the human condition to that of animals. Taking inspiration from George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the album depicts the different classes of people as animals with pigs being at the top of the social chain, dropping down to the sheep as the mindless herd following what they are told, with dogs as the business bosses getting fat on the money and power they hold over the other. Although it’s been a long time since 1977, the narrative of the album still resonates today as our social and economic situation mirrors that of the time.

Animals reached No. 2 in the U.K., and No. 3 in the U.S.. Thanks to the album and the band’s back catalog, noted The Guinness Book of British Hit Albums, “Pink Floyd bested Abba for most weeks on chart (in 1977), 108 to 106.”

NME called Animals “one of the most extreme, relentless, harrowing and downright iconoclastic hunks of music to have been made available this side of the sun,” and Melody Maker’s Karl Dallas described it as “(an) uncomfortable taste of reality in a medium that has become in recent years, increasingly soporific.”

I hear you asking what about the pig?

Well, similar to Queen’s ‘Frank’ Robot, this is an exclusively French 1977 original 31″ high by 48″ long [approx] nearly full size Piggie, as seen on the front of the ‘Animals’ LP sleeve, with a 20″ long tray on its back for displaying a goodly quantity of said LPs above the banner ‘PINK FLOYD “animals”‘ as it says on the side of the tray. Being made of plastic, it doesn’t eat much, so you can do away with messy Stys, fields, mucking out, etc. and just enjoy it for what it is. Lovingly shaded in various piggy hues with green for grass between its legs, the ensemble is made from two halves of moulded pink plastic riveted together to form a very sturdy unit indeed. It could even double as a crib, should you so wish to torment your infant. Near life-size, this is a sight to behold, the ultimate Floyd collectables!
