1 stars Waters must have loved his previous two albums with Pink Floyd (The Wall and the Final Cut), because his music here was all ripped off of those two albums. Melodies rehashed, and often no melodies at all. In fact, other than the fact that this is a concept album, this really has nothing to it. Musically it's more like sleepy folk music than progressive rock. The only song that is fairly interesting is the title track (The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking), which isn't great, but has a nice backing chorus, and lively guitar parts.

If you praise the ground Roger Waters walks on, then you should check this out. If you're a curious Floyd fan check it out. But if you're just a casual lover of prog rock (or music in general), avoid this one. It's boring, bland, poorly sung and proof that Waters can't carry an album by himself (not yet anyways).

Buh | 1/5 |
