  1. Animals

    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 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. The album's cover image, a pig floating between two chimneys on Battersea Power Station, was conceived by bassist and writer Roger Waters, and photographed by long-time collaborators Hipgnosis. The album was released to generally positive reviews in the United Kingdom, where it reached number 2. It was also a success in the United States, reaching number 3 on the Billboard 200, and although it scored on the American charts for only six months, steady sales have resulted in its certification by the RIAA at four times platinum. The size of the venues on the band's In the Flesh tour, and an incident in which Waters spat at a fan, prompted him to conceive the band's subsequent album, The Wall.

Examples of Animals in a Sentence

  1. Michael Shermer:

    It is sad that while science moves ahead in exciting new areas of research, fine-tuning our knowledge of how life originated and evolved, creationists remain mired in medieval debates about angels on the head of a pin and animals in the belly of an Ark.

  2. Stephen Hawking:

    For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imaginations, we learned to talk.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's amazing that pigeons, lobsters, turtles, and even rats don’t get lost on their way, and unlike humans, they don't need either mapquest or Google Maps or GPS to find their way home. This is because they have built-in GPS within themselves. These animals rely on and leverage Earth’s magnetic field for orientation and navigation. The neural source of magnetic sense in pigeons are now found to be the single cells that encode three key positioning factors: the direction of a magnetic field, its intensity, and its polarity (north or south). It's so amazing. Centuries ago, the pigeons were used in India to send messages across hundreds of miles. By understanding how the pigeons process the computing and mapping in the brain, one day that info can probably be used to imorove the spatial orientation in human brains. And some day in future, we may not need a GPS in the car, because that GPS will be within us, built-in and totally internal to guide us at all times.

  4. Chief Executive Donnie Smith:

    We don't know because we don't own those animals.

  5. Robert Ndetei:

    Before construction started in the park the lions were not escaping, so there are indications that the noise and blasting is affecting their movements, if you don’t plan properly, if you don’t do proper environmental impact assessments, then you are doomed to fail and at the Nairobi National Park this could lead to more lions and other animals coming into contact with a growing human presence.
