"...experiencing (the album) in both stereo and 5.1 is exciting, each version having a particular appeal. The stereo mix is a chance to finally experience the album at its true potential, imbued with energy and nuance. The 5.1 is akin to pentimento, the high-resolution format and expansive elements revealing the entire widescreen vista of the world which the album creates, the depths of emotional and musical impact. As is characteristic of a Guthrie mix, the 5.1 is not gimmicky but dynamic and immersive, revealing a wealth of detail which existed within the recording even if we were unable to fully discern it until now. The pleasure of it is in finally hearing Animals elevated to those heights which the Golden Era recordings had previously established. The album is no longer an outlier but yet another piece of that classic mosaic, the works which established Pink Floyd as not only one of the most successful bands of the era, but also one of the most creative and impactful." — Julie Skaggs,, Sept. 9, 2022.

The time for the limited deluxe edition release Pink Floyd fans have coveted — Animals in 5.1 surround, stereo and LP — is here. The iconic 1977 Pink Floyd album has been remixed for the first time by longtime producer/engineer James Guthrie. The album was remastered for vinyl by Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.

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."
