amused to Death (1992)
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.
