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...
