When Waters left the Pink Floyd, as a long time fan of the band, I thought it was the end of an era.
This album, like the following albums of Roger Waters, made me feel that rather than the end it was the beginning of an era, especially of a chain of records made from a true artist, such as Waters and his real, genuine expression still capable to penetrate heart and soul of the listerers who keep their ears clean.
Both as a Waters fan and as a musician, I can tell that this album is technically stunning, emotionally deep and really amazing and I suggest to get (like I did) the following albums as well.
Let's not forget that Roger Waters is not only a truly good bassist, a passionate singer and songwriter, an uncorruptible artist but also a monstruous composer (check Ca Ira).
So yes, 5 stars from me, definitely!
