2 stars I suppose it should be daring to try go "main-stream" for people like Roger Waters, in this case as with others (Roxy Music-"Manifesto", Yes-"Tormento" (I know), ELPs "Love Beach", Zappa's "Sheik Your Booty" and a whole list of attempts in this tenor). So not all are successful, rather the opposite.

"Radio Chaos" barely rises above the level of becoming an obsolete attempt to try to open up the "Radio Waves" . Few songs are notable. The "concept" by the middle of the album fades down to nothingness and silliness.

Musically speaking the "pop" it suggests lacks identity and intelligence (any good "non-mainstream", pop song's requirements) and frankly the humour is "cliched" and forced.

If not for the songs: "Home" excellent composition wise and the emblematic and beautiful "The Tide is Turning", this whole work will really have been obsolete.

Can miss these 2 songs! The rest is as bad as bad "main-stream" music is, which makes it also expendable!

**2 "Lazy-Work" PA stars.
