Amused to Death - Simply Stunning,
This review is from: Amused to Death (Audio CD)
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.
