Animals is underrated, methinks. It's better than Wish You Were Here, which is dragged down by Welcome to the Machine and Have a Cigar.

My parents listened to a lot of Motown, which I'm thankful for. They liked the Beatles a lot, too. Besides that, some 70's rock from my Dad, meh. I got into music big-time on my own, basically. Well, my best friend's brother used to listen to a lot of college radio, so, got early exposure to "alternative" music.......
Yeah, I pretty much got into the really good stuff on my own and through my friends.

Most Steely Dan makes me think of NYC.

Animals is Pink Floyd's crowning acievement. It is the perfect mix of Roger Waters's storytelling and the band's great music.

Wish You Were Here is dragged down the title track. Other than that it is an okay record.

I love Animals, and I know others here think it's their best, but it doesn't beat Wish You Were Here in my book.

Mary, Queen of Arkansas is very meh to me.

Some good tunes on there, though: Blinded by the Light, For You, Spirit in the Night, Lost in the Flood, IHTBASITC, Growin' Up ...

One of the positives of this site has been that it has exposed me to a lot of artists I'd not have heard of....bands like The National, Okkervil River, Kasabian, LCD Soundsystem, hell, this board even got me to listen to Muse.....

Oh, don't get me wrong. The first album is a great debut, but it's got two songs that, IMO, kinda suck - Mary, Queen Of Arkansas and The Angel.

So I guess "mixed bag" isn't the best wording, as it's great except for those two.

E Street Shuffle is classic all the way through, though.

Dark Side of the Moon is the best Pink Floyd album, IMO. Very consistent, and doesn't drag, whereas I think Animals drags a little bit in the three long tracks.

i could make a corny joke about that song title but there's no point.

and i agree, those are all good songs.
