4 stars This record is pretty well recorded. Songs are unequal. Some songs are really accessible (radio waves, sunset strip). Some keyboards are varied and really interesting. I like those beautiful female backing vocals. But the composition are generally bland, except for the 2 last songs. The powers that be sound like the bravery of being out of range. Sunset strip sounds like a pop DIRE STRAITS. When I play this record, it is for the last 2 songs: "Four minutes" and "The Tide Is Turning". You have to hear this beautiful voice of Clare Torry (great gig in the sky), through dramatic floating keyboards sounds, tic tac and radio animator voice! I've been stuck on it for a while! On the "tide is turning", there is a perfect match between clean electric guitar and floating keyboards.

"Amused to Death" is definitely better...!
