4 stars This album may not be a true prog rock album in alot of peoples eyes but it was composed by one of the greatest progressive songwriters ever. When Roger Waters undertook this project in the late 80's he had no idea that it would take over fifteen years to complete. Etienne Roda-Gil and his wife Nadine approached Waters and asked him to add music two a fifty page long script that would become the opera Ça Ira. Unfortunately both Etienne and Nadine Roda-Gil have passed on since then and aren't here today to see their work come to fruition. I can safely assume that they would be more than pleased with the job Waters has done with this piece. When listening to it you can here the Roger Waters factor creeping through but you also get the sense that this a real, proper opera. Waters has done a magnificent job once again - well worth the wait and well worth anyone's hard earned cash. Now, all we've got to wait for is that new Pink Floyd album ;-).
