3 stars Musically, "Amused to Death" continues down the general path Waters has traveled since "The Final Cut" - muttered verses, gigantic choruses prominently featuring female voices, and epic guitar solos (provided in this case by the legendary Jeff Beck). At this point, the formula isn't as fresh as it was back in the early '80s yet is utilized to better effect than "Pros and Cons" and "Radio KAOS."

Thematically, however, the album remains just as fresh today as when it was first conceived. Given the Iraqi conflict, reality television and our worship of celebrity, Waters' condemnation of mass-media and the government is all too relevant these days.
