It is similar to an older model I had which is why I purchased this and hoping it indeed was the same; it is. The phone sound is clear. The intercom system we use often by naming each phone saves steps by not having to go up and down the stairs or outside. Just having the clip on the phone for carrying around is a plus when outside. My driveway is 3/10 of a mile long and the phone still works from the base. The number of calls that can be blocked is great. I've read other reviews about how difficult the phone can be due to all the features. It is not difficult. The manual is very clear.
I use this to connect my tablet to my desktop to my phone. It works seamlessly in all devices and across platforms (Android to Windows 7). It comes with its own adapter.
I, as many other Pink Floyd fans in the beginning, had disdain for this album. Five songs, two under two minutes and three over ten? What IS this? And so, I like everyone else loved Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon, Meddle, etc. Never giving Animals a second thought.
I recently listened to this album out of boredom and was absolutely blown away. From the beginning chord of Pigs on the Wing Pt. 1 to the similar ending chord of Pigs on the Wing Pt. 2, you are in for a treat. The first two songs serve as bookends -- both musically and lyrically. The album itself deals with the shortcomings of capitalism. The Pigs on the Wing tracks serve as the glimmers of hope in the darkness of our world -- the song Dogs talks about how people are selfish and only work for themselves. Pigs (Three Different Ones) has to do with three types of the three social classes to which society is confined to. Finally, you come to Sheep, which deals with people ignoring all the problems of the world and blindly following a leader or leaders. The two bookends, as I said, serve as a beacon of hope in the dark of a man singing a love song to his wife amidst all of this confusion and sadness. If the lyrics didn't do it for you, at least try the music.
Dogs is a 17 minute epic -- not as long as some of the other Floydian epics, but that does not mean a thing. For me, it is the greatest Pink Floyd track. Blistering solos, singing by both Gilmour and Waters, Richard Wight solos in the last half. It's everything that is Floyd. And if you hear the song, you know what I mean -- 'Stone! Stone! Stone!'
Pigs is another big song that opens with one of the most WICKED keyboard sounds I've ever heard in my life. It chills me to the bone. It then follows with Roger Waters singing and one of the most catchy choruses I've ever heard -- 'ha ha, charade you are!' The song is dominated by guitars and keys, it's an amazing track.
Sheep is the final epic on the album. It opens with the sound of sheep bleating and a catchy bass line, ala Money. The bassline dominates the track. However, as before, everyone else shines as well. Gilmour has some of his best guitarwork in this track, especially the last two minutes. The last two minutes are the best on any Pink Floyd album!
Finally you have the Pigs on the Wing twins, which are two purely acoustic songs. Very haunting and catchy melody on these guitars. But also different from the rest of the album -- more hopeful, happy.
So, there you have it. With Animals, you have Pink Floyd's darkest album, musically, and also their most daring lyrics wise. This all calls for a great album, but because it's done by Pink Floyd, it's simply their best album, far outshining both Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here.
