5 stars Best album by Roger Waters, and for me my favorite album of the 90's. The last by Roger, "Radio Kaos" was good but it was missing some stuff. It contained too much 80's pop sound. Amused to Death doesn't have that sound at all. This is a progressive rock album. The opening song The Ballad of Bill Hubbard is a great instrumental with Jeff Beck playing a slow guitar solo of the slow music. Then the sound of a t.v leads you to " What God Wants, Pt. 1 ", which was a hit song, even though it was banned from radio stations. Still it's a great song. Perfect Sense Pt. 1 & 2 is a moving song sung by Roger and PP Arnold. This album is filled with great songs like The Bravery of being out of Range, What God Wants, Pt. 2 & 3, Watching TV, It's a Miricle, and the best Amused to Death. The Eagles singer Don Henely sings with Roger on Watching TV. Three Wishes is another good song. Rita Coolidge sings with Roger as well on Amused to Death. For anyone who might not like Roger's first two albums and has not listened to this, give it a chance. There are some great, longer songs with much better musical direction. As all ways with Roger Waters the lyrics on here are perfect. It's filled with geast musicians and it's a great concept album.
