Description & Features+

Amused to Death is a solid album both conceptually and musically, showcasing Waters as an artist who, like his work with Pink Floyd, conveys his thoughts and ideals with pinpoint accuracy so that they are engraved within his audience's mind. With this album, Waters touches heavily on the dangers of capitalism, the insensitivity of the human race, the ridiculousness of war, and the onslaught of mindless entertainment that encroaches on mankind on a day-to-day basis. Fitting all these aspects into 14 songs is a task in itself, but accomplishing this task alongside music that is forceful and appealing is extremely difficult, and still Waters succeeds in doing this throughout the duration of the album. "The Ballad of Bill Hubbard" is a moving spoken intro from Alf Razzell, a former member of Britain's Royal Fusiliers. A stab at the false sense of security that lies within religion is dealt with on the powerful "What God Wants, Pt. 1," and the cowardice of the world's leaders is addressed in "The Bravery of Being Out of Range," one of the albums most blatant tracks. Guest guitarist Jeff Beck rises to the occasion on a number of songs here, and both Rita Coolidge and Don Henley fill in behind and beside Waters on a couple of the longer tunes. Ending with the title track, a song that sums up the whole of the album with it's subtle yet hard-hitting demeanor, Waters proves that he can still reveal his conceptual ideas with pristine clarity, only on Amused to Death, the music is as equally entertaining and effective. ~ Mike DeGagne, All Music Guide

Ratings & Reviews+

Roger Waters - Amused to Death is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kicking Rock from an aged Rocker This conceptual album is right on the money for the times we live in today. Pay very close attention to the lyrics of every song on this album and you will find that Waters was 15 years ahead of time when he wrote and performed this masterpiece. Having had the opportunity to see many of the songs from this particular record performed live a few years back I find myself revisiting this record often and I know why I am as the events described in this record are right in time with the events of today. This has been a favorite of mine since the release of this masterpiece in 1992. Do yourself a favor and get this masterpiece for yourself you will not be disappointed this record TRULY ROCKS!!
