3 stars I remember me comparing Radio Kaos with A momentary lapse of reason, when the Waters - Pink Floyd battle was even fresh. At this time I was liked both two, but with the time they became not so good for me. Anyway, Radio KAOS has good things. It's not progressive rock, except because the conceptual format of the album, a typical Waters habit, which seems to be a cliche. In this case the conceptual thing is not so rigid as on Pros and Cons or Amused to death, and permits Waters some more variety. The pop stuff is not a great thing, but between the rest there are really good tracks.

Radio waves, The power that be and Sunset strip, tried to be a pop stuff, but is nothing special, a bit mediocre. Me or him is typical Waters ballad, which I like. Is a good track. The other four tracks are in my opinion the best of the album.

Home: A really strong track in which Waters sings with aggressiveness, specially in the chorus which is superb.

Who needs information: A bit poppy but really good for me. The combination of the guitar riffs, the keyboard mattress and a strong bass drum line makes a good song. Again Waters stands out in the chorus with a great performance.

Four minutes: Here a simple keyboard base, with the addition of a female voice and Waters voice, generates a dramatic feeling in this track. Really good.

The tide is turning: Typical Waters number, and the most known of the album. With the addition of a choir in the catchy chorus, the keyboard and the Waters voice makes the major part. A good ending.

Not prog. Some tracks good, some tracks mediocre, Radio Kaos is good but not essential. Three stars.
