4 stars This is not a bad album, it's just that it was made in '87. Radio K.A.O.S is my least favorite album by Roger Waters as a whole, but I don't think it deserves the one star reviews at all or the two star for that matter. When I first started to listen to this album I wasn't very impressed. I thought Roger could do way better and I still think he could have done better. Looking back from Floyds "DSOTM", "WYWH", "Animals", " The Wall", and " The Final Cut" Roger was a great songwriter. Even with " The Pros and Cons" he was stronger on lyrics and music. But the 80's became the decade for all of that terrible pop, and hair metal. Music like the kind Roger wrote was not "mainstream". So I think he was trying to get this one to fit in. It just didn't work. The only song on here that I just can't get into is "Sunset Strip", not that I don't like it. The best to me is "Home". This one seems to stand out above the rest of them. The lyrics and music overall are just better. "The Powers That Be" is another really good track. Despite the bad 80's sound I still would say this is a "prog" album. I would recommend this one to who ever like's the later Roger/ Floyd music. Otherwise try his best, "Amused to Death".
