2 stars The single, hard to find now on vinyl, but available on many bootleg compilations, such as Treefull Of Secrets, is an interesting time capsule. Driven by a propulsive, but hardly unique, beat and phase shifting guitar, Radio Waves features Waters at his most (only??) blatant attempt to reach a commercial audience. The drawback is that Waters' voice is hardly the stuff of top 40 radio, and his croaking delivery of the chorus only served to alienate him from any new audience. The 12" version features only an extended intro and a doubled solo, as well as dialog from the "so-called" radio station.

The real highlight is the 'Going To Live In LA' which features an abandoned part of the album's story. Some of the ideas on this track are recycled on the existing songs of the album, but it does have Waters' sense of linear story and a nice up-tempo rock ending more worthy of his abilities.

DantesRing | 2/5 |
