2 stars This album is indeed the result of the sudden decadence of WATERS as he departures from PINK FLOYD. It was the year of 1983 when PINK FLOYD released "The Final Cut", an unforgettable postwar requiem to Eric Fletcher WATERS and the crucial time for WATERS to overcome not only his father's loss but also the reemerging to new prog music paradoxes for him. After several years of touring, without any surprisingly new record releasing, "Delicate Sound of Thunder" hit the music stores fulfilled with enigmatic new songs and incomprehensible reprises from some other PINK FLOYD records from the past, determining the end of the ROGER WATERS era within the early 70's psychedelic band. And so, he encouraged himself to overcome the scraps of yesterday with his former band and the constant struggle from within by releasing the still inexplicable RADIO K.A.O.S. in 1987 after his solo debut album "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking". This album is a mixture of incontrovertible 80's sounds and the beginning of the end of concept albums in the early 90's upon the Progressive Rock platforms. Anyhow, WATERS taught himself a lesson with this "Radio K.A.O.S." experience and evidenced his wit and creativeness in the years to come in masterpieces such as "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking" and "Amused to Death". Even the great ones stumble a little bit! so give this album the chance to be part of your PINK FLOYD and ROGER WATERS CD collection!
