Best Album - Lyrically

This thread is twinned with this one: http://www.pinkfloydonline.com/forums/sh...?tid=12977 so we can see how the two categories compare.

The Wall with Animals as a close second

Snake, history will never know what she did. No one will ever learn the truth. Her story... her debriefing... will endure only in your heart. Everything she did, she did for her country. She sacrificed her life and her honor for her native land. She was a real hero. She was a true patriot. ~ EVA re: The Boss (MGS3)

Animals definitely. Most of the lyrics in Dogs alone are worthy of that title. rocker

I think Pigs (TDO) has the best lyrics, the most bitter with the best imagery. Sheep is my second favourite, though is the most straightforward lyrically, and Dogs is of course great also

I love the lyric in Dogs; you've got to be trusted by the people that you lie to.

Very true with politics these days. rocker

yeah, Dogs has really good lyrics, no doubt, but I'm a sucker for the imagery and the overall bitter sarcasm in Pigs (TDO), and prolly cause it's my favourite Floyd song (with Sheep as my second, Dogs as my third), though Dogs is absolutely fantastic

Yeah. All the songs on Animals have great lyrics really, so to each his own. Cool
