This is a cracking album from Roger Waters. I've only recently discovered it and I'm glad I did. His lyrics are standard Waters fare for this album, which means you'll get generally intelligent stuff, but with some, at times, daft sounding lines. Still, that's a minor gripe. The most impressive thing about this album is how his music is transformed by a change in guitarist. Now, I like David Gilmour. In fact, I think the man's guitar playing is magnificent, but Eric Clapton's lead guitar in the Pros & Cons of Hitch Hiking is stunning and at the same time, completely different from anything you'd associate Floyd or Roger Waters with. There is many a highlight on the album, but the most impressive thing about it is how Waters runs each track into the next so smoothly. Something the Wall failed at and the Final Cut almost had down to a tee had it not been for 'Not Now John'.
If you're a fan of Roger Waters or Floyd I'd recommend this without a shadow of a doubt.
