A very good blues band with a HUGE singer. Their first two albums -maybe their first 3- are consistently good. They were playing the same league as the Yardbirds and maybe early Rolling Stones but when music changed after the Beatles 65-66 musical revolution they fell behind and their style was suddenly old overnight.

Most songs by this band seem to have "aged" more than songs by other bands (The Troggs for example also sound old, but still a lot "fresher"). This music seems out of time and ready to be forgotten (if not already by most). However, they do have 2 or 3 great songs, House of the Rising sun in the first place.

One of the seminal british bands of the mid '60's. Never up there with the Stones, Beatles or Kinks but still a very accomplished blues band.

The early Animals is great. Love the sound of the group and also Eric Burdon sings great!

Playing the same game as the Rolling Stones and Beatles, with a little bit more bluesy influences. They just don't do it quite as well. They have their moments (Rising Sun, Misunderstood, etc...) but they have way too much filler, and their post 66 work is awful. Too bad - they have some great tracks.
