I'm not sure the song was ever going to work with a 'lavish' sound - snare drum aside.

Great cover though and I still think that if a band released 'Animals' as new music today then it would still be utterly, utterly astonishing. It's my favourite Pink Floyd album just because it's so goddam nihilistic, desolate and nasty.

I think this is probably the best live version of 'Dogs':

Absolutely bloody mindblowing, even though some of the stage wear is questionable and the backing singers don't work for me. Jon Carin rules.
i very much want to see the rest of this clip.
