I bought this album just a few weeks ago (6/20/05). With the deluge of junk on the airwaves I have been lost in my 70's collections of albums for the last 25 years. Having visited a few sites related to Pink Floyd I stumbled across a myriad of positive reviews for the album Amused To Death.

I had not heard of it. So I proceeded to buy the album thinking it would probably rate at best to be a C album. I was emphatically wrong. If this album was done under the Pink Floyd moniker it would have hailed as an equal to the Wall and possibly Dark Side. It would have sold milliions of copies. Is it just me, or can you sense the DNA of Pink Floyd in the lyrics, sound, mood and feel of the album. I simply love this album.

I know Gilmore was and is great! But Roger takes no back seat either. Can you imagine this album redone by Pink Floyd. Then again, how do you improve upon Beck's guitar playing. Anyway, enough fantasizing.

If you like Pink Floyd, there is know way you would not like this album. I rate it 5 stars. I might have rated it 4.5, but the option does not exist. If there is any negative, Roger's voice seems to be diminished from the glory days.
