4 stars 4: the last album by Roger Waters until now in 2019, and I think is really his last album because he already said the most probably isn't going to do any other tour. I have to recognize that I am not a big fan of Waters, I think most of the pink floyd fans don't like when he began to turn political and in his previous work he was very repetitive, also I consider him very arrogant person and even he was a genius in Pink Floyd with his creativity in lyrics and concepts and the way he sung, he always needed of the band to make good music, proof of that is all his other records. Thankfully, in this record he amended himself, doing the album most Pink Floyd seemingly of any solo career (I am missing to hear Wrights work). Finally, his lyrics and ideas get combined with really good music. If I have to describe in terms of PF albums, It sounds reminiscent to Dark side of the Moon and the Wall. His voice is not in his best moment, but it is a good effort. The songs that I really enjoyed were: Smell the Roses, Picture that, Bird in a Gale and Part of me died. The other ones are good too but nothing especial. Finally, a really good album, the most similar to the Floyd era, despite its little faults, and excellent addition to any prog collection.
