5 stars This was my first album by Roger Waters that I ever listened to. At first I thought it was abit boaring, but as I kept listening to it I realized that it was a very good album. The last few Pink Floyd albums were mostly written by Waters from what I understand, and some of the melodies on this album can be heard on The Wall and The Final Cut. Sometimes the music on here is not great every song, but it's the story and the lyrics that Roger sings that makes the album. One thing that does help the music is Eric Clapton on lead guitar. The songs are named by using real time, and giving titles at the end like 4.30 Am (Apparently They Were Travelling abroad). For me some of the best pieces are 4.41 Am (Sexual Revolution), 4.33 Am (Running Shoes), 4.50 Am (Go Fishing), 5.01 Am (The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking part 10), and 5.06 Am (Every Strangers Eyes). To me this is some of Roger's best, but not his greatest.
