Best pink floyd album, Animals

Animals is the tenth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd. Released in January 1977, Animals is a concept album that provides a scathing critique of the social-political conditions of 1970s Britain, and presents a marked change in musical style from their earlier work. Animals was recorded at the band's studio, Britannia Row, in London. Production of the album was punctuated by the early signs of discord that several years later would culminate in keyboardist Richard Wright leaving the band. The album's cover image, a pig floating between two chimneys on Battersea Power Station, was designed by bassist and writer Roger Waters, and produced by long-time collaborator Hipgnosis.
The album was released to mixed reviews in the UK, where it reached number two. It was also a success in the US, reaching number three on the Billboard album charts. Although it scored on the American charts for only six months, steady sales have resulted in the album being certified four times platinum by the RIAA. The size of the venues on the band's In the Flesh tour, and an incident where the behaviour of fans prompted Waters to spit at one of them, prompted the bassist to write the band's subsequent studio album, The Wall.

Reunirea trupei Pink Floyd, blocată de chitaristul David Gilmour

Muzicianul britanic Roger Waters a declarat că reunirea legendarei trupe Pink Floyd este puţin probabilă, cel puţin deocamdată, din pricina fostului său coleg David Gilmour, care ar fi "complet dezinteresat" de acest proiect, relatează presa internaţională, potrivit NewsIn.
Altfel, Waters a reconfirmat că va demara un turneu mondial ale cărui concerte vor include exclusiv piesele de pe cunoscutul album "The Wall". Turneul va începe la Toronto, în 15 septembrie.
Considerată cea mai importantă trupă de rock progresiv din istorie, Pink Floyd s-a lansat la sfârşitul anilor '60. Alături de "The Wall", printre cele mai cunoscute albume ale trupei se numără "Wish You Were Here" şi "Dark Side Of The Moon", care a stabilit recorduri de vânzări şi de staţionare pe primul loc al topurilor muzicale.
