4 stars 3.75: After hearing the surprisingly really good is this the life we really want, and seeing the high scores it has, i wanted to give it other try to this one (I was avoiding it) only to discover is the same thing he was doing in his previous last albums but in his best version. very pretentious and political, and with antiwar lyrics. Musically I only liked God wants part 1, Bravery of being out of range , watching tv , three wishes and amused to death.Sounds like animals and the wall combined. Really great work in the guitars for some of the songs. I didnt like most of the lyrics, but the second part of the album, has some deep thoughts and interesting things to say. Supposedly the concept is about aliens arriving to the earth and seeing monkeys watching tv amused for the death that is happening. I was surprised with his deteriorated voice even in 1990. The classic style of criticizing anything and trying to convince of thinking in his way as always is presence, classic girls singing at the background. One of the things that i dont like of Waters music is that is so repetitive, makes a good tunes and want to divide it a lot of parts with only different lyrics, the same exact music is recycled, nothing spectacular, and turns to be most repetitive. Jeff beck is the most known participant of the thousand collaborator. Finally, is a good album, it has really good moments but also there are a few mediocre songs, an excellent addition, however I will recommended it most to the people that liked his work.
