- Stephen M. Singer "Steve" - Fantastic ultrawide lensI read elsewhere that its optical quality is almost "L lens" quality. It is. The Canon lens is not cheap but it is worth the money. It is well built and has a nice feel. This lens will get a lot of use. There is some purple fringing at the outer edges which is common to many of the ultrawides and can be corrected in post processing. Buy it, use it and enjoy a new perspective.
- Travelsinheels - Best probiotic I've triedI've been taking Fivelac for four months at the suggestion of my doctor and I can't say enough good things about it. Since taking Fivelac, I've noticed a difference in my energy level and overall health. I take two packets a day with water - one in the morning and one in the evening. The flavor and texture are not my favorite, but it isn't awful by any meands and there is no aftertaste. I've taken probiotics in pill form in the past and none of them hold a candle to Fivelac.
- Nate Rayburn - A Progressive/Punk Rock Classic!This is my favorite PF album even though I enjoy listening to "Wish You Were Here" more often and I agree with most critics that "Dark Side..." is their best record just due to how focused and perfect that whole album is.
What grabs me about "Animals" is really how punk rock the lyrics are when you really get down to what they really mean. Roger is far too intelligent to just come out and name names. He's always been the best at not making the songs too personal so that you can fit your life experiences into the songs and relate to them easily. He really takes a shot at all the greedy, slimey yuppies and politicians on this record, IMO, and does it well.
It's also Floyd at their most stripped down. The don't muck it up with too many overdubs, but still make it pretty damn full where it needs to be. I love how it begins and ends sparsely, but Gilmour nails the solos in "Dogs" and he's one of the few guys who can play a solo and you'll be "singing" the solo in your head for the rest of your life.
I'm sure all of the components of the record were due to the way they were blasted by all punk rock kids at the time as well as the lyrical content. I think the songs needed to be a little more rough and less polished due to the subject matter. Roger is comparing humans to animals here. I wish Gilmour had listened to this more before doing his recent solo "effort", but most of all I'd like to see these guys get back in the studio and make an album. Waters still has things to say and Gilmour's voice still holds up along with his guitar playing.
