ROGER WATERS / Amused To Death (1992)

A concept album with a hugely ambitious scope that enables Waters to comment on the entirety of mankind’s accomplishments and follies, as viewed from more than one unique perspective.  Musically it performs a similar function in relation to his illustrious career that fans of his input into Pink Floyd should appreciate on a deeper level.  But it’s not just Floyd 2.0, it’s the poet and musician being intellectually engaging and musically diverse, reaching further afield than ever before into what it is that makes us human.  I'm not ashamed to say that a part of it makes me tearful, and that’s the highest praise I can conceivably give.
