3 stars I would have to agree that this is Roger Waters' best post Pink Floyd solo album. His lyrics are very good, a biting look at commercialism and materialism. The music, for the most part, is very Pink Floydian. And his sound effects, once you get past the crickets that open and close the album, are quite entertaining.

While much of the music takes the same mournful sound that Waters has been using sing "The Final Cut", there is still plenty of good, and upbeat material as well. Especially good are the three What God Wants tracks. One complaint is that the drumming throughout is as simplistic a Mason was on "The Wall".

A plus is Jeff Beck's guitar solos. If anyone makes a good replacement for David Gilmour, it's Beck.

Evolver | 3/5 |
