When this album first came out, it was with eagre anticipation that I added it to "Radio KAOS" and "Pros and Cons". "Pros and Cons" was one of my favourite albums and one you really need to "listen" to to get the best out of.
Initially, I was disappointed with "Amused". Then I listened to it again, and then again. Now... it *is* my favourite album. You get more the more you *really* listen - the lyrics, the sounds, everything.
I can't recall which of the new Pink Floyd's albums came out at the same time ("Division Bell" ?) but, while David's a stunning guitarist, the album came nowhere near "Amused to Death", not even the same ball park.
A superb album... just stunning in its depth and complexity.
I recently bought Roger's "In the Flesh", and while it's good to hear new takes on old songs, it served to send me back to "Amused to Death" once again.
To echo other's comments, another album is awaited Roger...

Roger Waters' latter day Pink Floyd or his solo career has never been an "Easy Listen" like "Dark Side" or "Wish You Were Here" were, primarily because the lyrics are altogether more ambitious, frankly bitter and not soothed too much by harmonious passages as those albums were. The main point of Roger Waters from 1977 through 1992 is in the lyrics and although the music accompanying these "heavy" lyrics has often been uplifting, I think it is true to say that if you don't give a s*** about lyrics, then then each album from "Animals" (1977) through this album from 1992 might be a little difficult to digest. But herein lies the point: Roger Waters was and is the ONLY capable lyricist from the Floyd since the days of Syd Barrett. This album is indeed the culmination of Roger Waters' ENTIRE cannon. He said as much in an interview at the time of its release.
The album is a major return to form following the (if we're totallly honest) rather disappointing "Pros & Cons" (1984) and "Radio Kaos (1987). Here we have what I believe is the perfect fourth segment in Waters' Lyrical Masterpieces, namely "Animals" (1977), "The Wall" (1979), "The Final Cut" (1983) and THIS album: "Amused To Death" (1992). Not to say that the first two solo albums didn't have their moments, they DID, but this album achieves an overall excellence worthy of "Wall" and "Final Cut". From the mesmerising first cut "What God Wants....God Gets God Help Us All" it is awe-inspiring stuff. The stadium of football supporters chanting "It All Makes Perfect Sense...Expressed in Dollars And Cents" is about the most incisive lyric Roger has EVER written. But it's not all cynicism.

Everything in the other reviews is absolutely true about this astonishing album,by far waters best and up there with anything he did with floyd.When i first heard this album it moved me like no other record had done before.The division bell and other later floyd albums are not even on the same planet as this masterpiece.They are missing waters direction and lyrics far more than he is missing them.I just feel for roger ,while gilmour and co are making huge sums off the back of rogers lyrics in their live shows ,he has not had the recognition his vision and genius deserve.This record gets better and hits you on a deeper level with every listen.The production is immense the music is awesome(jeff beck outplaying gilmour at his own game)I can't wait for his next longawaited album if it is even half as good as this.A masterpiece.

This is a most remarkable album. It is a momumental piece of work that grows more interesting every time you hear it, so deep are the layers, so convoluted the mix, so fine the production, so classy the edit, so perceptive the words.
I just love the imagination used in the opening and closing sequences, the utter sadness of the old man's tale, bringing pictures leaping into your mind. It really is an album to be heard in its entirety, and I for one never ever tire of it. A genuine masterpiece, and to think that you can own this gem and play it as often as you like to whatever fidelity you like for the cost of a 40 mile train ride.
tom.

Amused to Death is simply a stunning vision of pure passion and commitment to perfection that has become the essence of emotion for Roger Warters. I have followed the works of Floyd since Piper at the Gates and to me the ethos that is Pink Floyd is clearly Roger Waters. Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, The Wall, The Final Cut, Pros and Cons, and Amused to Death are a captivating journey through an evolving psychological maelstrom culminating with the powerful last tracks of Amused and the feeling that is evoked recalling the memory of Bill Hubbard. The soldier has carried that emotion with him for as much as sixty-five or seventy years, Roger Waters releases that power of emotion displaying how private and personal the futility of military conflict really is.
Amused to Death is an experience not to be missed; I rarely listen to individual tracks but set aside sufficient time to listen to the complete album. If you appreciate the passion of the great painters you will surely marvel at the writing of Roger Waters. Yes I really believe that Amused to Death is flawless.
Don't think about buying it - Buy it.
