Animals is the tenth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, released in January 1977. A concept album, it provides a scathing critique of the social-political conditions of late 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, but its production was punctuated by the early signs of discord that several years later would culminate in keyboardist Richard Wright leaving the band.

Everyone concerned about the quality ! I'll be honest and straightforward, it is mean, I can not say that bad, at least the audience noise is not as strong as in other bootlegs, although some bootlegs he is, but he does not stop listening to the record, and also some bootlegs recorded so that you would think that the recording is not made of the concert hall and the spectator with mixing console during a concert ! Also very good arrangement of the songs !
