amused to Death (1992)

Prog - - Intro -

as Pink floyd’s ma­jor-domo, wa­ters was

the king of the con­cept al­bum – even those al­bums that didn’t have a dis­tinct sto­ry­line were tied to­gether by very strong themes. but his first three solo al­bums all had a clearly de­fined fo­cus, from the Pros and cons of hitch hik­ing’s time-stamped fever dream to ra­dio K.a.o.s.’ ‘para­plegic hacker nearly de­stroys the world’ sto­ry­line. amused to death was rog’s grand com­ment on our end­less ap­petite for mass tele­vi­sual en­ter­tain­ment, spin­ning it out into his usual

top­ics of ire: war, politi­cians and religion.
