YMMV / Animals

Go To


  • Awesome Music:
  • Memetic Mutation: The Battersea Power Station shown on the cover.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • "Dogs", the 17-minute epic that comprises virtually the entire first half of Animals, is a thoroughly chilling composition in every conceivable sense of the word. From the twistedly psychedelic keyboard effects to the raw, brittle acoustic guitar, the prevailing mood of the entire track is utterly dour. The lyrics are a stark and unflinchingly accurate portrayal of the aggressive, egomaniacal businessmen who exploit the people around them to get ahead. One line in particular stands out, describing the eventual fate of those types:
    Just another sad old man,
    All alone, and dying of cancer.
    • "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" opens with a pig snort and a creepy keyboard solo.
    • "Sheep" may also qualify as this. Halfway into the song, there is very eerie Hammond organ, followed by a corrupted version of Psalm 23 which could give you nightmares (though it can come off as more Black Comedy to some, particularly with the line about karate):
    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
    He makes me down to lie
    Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by
    With bright knives he releaseth my soul
    He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
    He converteth me to lamb cutlets
    For lo, he hath great power and great hunger
    When cometh the day we lowly ones
    Through quiet reflection and great dedication
    Master the art of karate
    Lo, we shall rise up
    And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water.

Animated Series

  • All Adult Animation Is South Park: Starts more or less with typical dudebro humor, but if anything it becomes South Park's spiritual antithesis, what with being a generally positive show with little toilet humor and more LGBT characters.
  • Needs More Love: Borders on entirely unsubjective, what with generally positive reviews from those who have seen seasons two and three but the show's extreme obscurity.
  • Ugly Cute: Wallet, a fat pigeon that appears on season 3 which is considered cute by many characters in-universe.

How well does it match the trope?
