The Truth
5 stars This was the greatest thing released by any Floyd member after the original the Waters/Gilmour/Mason/Wright broke up and I'll tell you why: this concept is perfect! Supposedly about aliens arriving at Earth finding us all dead in front of our TVs and they conclude we amused ourselves to death. But all through it there is a monkey randomly switching channels which is a nice addition. Waters is older now and sounds like it! Especially on Perfect Sense Part II where he sounds like he may be drawing his last breath but that fits the already dark topic. What God Wants is catchy but way too atheist for me. Amused To Death is the greatest track just because of the feeling it gives. Starting out on bongos but quickly turning to very heavy music. Excellent stuff from Mr. Waters! A lot of the music sounds the same so if you want variety don't get this! However I very much like it, so four stars!

Edit 2 Months later:

This album is definately more of a masterpiece than I thought when I hit about the 15th listen and began to understand the concept better I saw that this was no ordinary album. It is and probably always will be one of my favorite albums of all time! Sorry to give you some disrespect the first time Rog, you definately made a masterpiece.

The Truth | 5/5 |
