On it for the last 2 days over Spotify.

Nothing from Waters can be fully appreciated over a single session. So far I find it brilliant, will definitly buy the album.

I tuned in part way through a radio interview a few days ago. I thought the musician was really thoughtful and honest and caring while being sharp and funny and not at all hung up on himself. Turned out to be Roger Waters. The music was good too. Not a listener to Pink Floyd but may pick this one up.

Typical Roger Waters reminiscent of the Wall years. A good listen overall.



I can't wait to get it on vinyl.



Why?

Couldn't disagree more.
To me, there is a synergy with all 4 members but let's be honest....Roger Waters is Pink Floyd.
He wrote the lyrics to their big albums.
He set the tone of the music.
I love Gilmour and the rest.
I truly do.
But is there a Gilmour solo album that comes close to RW's ones?
Nope.

Hmmmm, got to say, David's first solo album was pretty darn good.
While not necessarily a concept album, it held it's own in my opinion.

Not sure if one can really compare the two artists solo album wise.......

Damn, you do have me on that one.
I have the album and played "There is no way out of here" always, on my way to school.
lol

Great album.

Shame on me.

I still stand by my statement though.

No other comments here? I thought there are many many PF fans here.

I picked up the cd..listened to it on the way to the Tool concert..not bad, very much a Pink Floyd vibe..more so than Amused To Death.
I will buy a copy on vinyl.

Musically not bad 5/10 :|
vocals - poor over stretched 3/10 :(
Lyrics - The world according to RW (pass the anti depressants), rants of a late teen revolutionary, stretching for rhymes, seems very contrived just non stop moaning. Worst to date. 1/10 :oops:

I would certainly recommend listening before buying. I'm glad I did, I have listened to it all the way through twice and 2 hours I wont get back.


Couldn't agree with you more on all accounts.

Nope.

+1. Waters' stuff is pretty far out there, but the rest of them together kept the sound grounded....as grounded as psychedelia could be. Without Waters, the Floyd sound never takes flight, IMO.

I really wish they could get back together but it's probably too late; the old farts are too mellow in their old age to write anything turned on enough to be interesting.

The album isn't easy listening. Waters makes you work to hear what he's on about.
I didn't find myself wanting to sing along or play air guitar but I did find myself thinking about what he was trying to say. There's a lot going on and repeated listening helps decipher his message.
That said,our boy Roger,really needs to get drunk and laid. Maybe not in that order.

Like many great artists getting on in age, this work is a meandering affair that'll find its place with his core audience.

I think it's not bad - some really nice string compositions that will sound very good late at night. In some aspects, it leaves me feeling like 1/2 of it is missing (namely DG's guitar) - but it works and I do like his voice in the way I like Cohen's voice.

His political views are pile of &&*$#% imo and he seems like a self righteous pr*** - but I don't need to connect with him on such matters.

I cannot disagree, love that album too!

Has Roger done anything that was not a concept album? Was Music from the Body (1970) a concept album?
Saw Radio Kaos performed live at Expo 86 in Vancouver (may be dating myself here....).
Absolutely fantastic, Jim Ladd was there for the live DJ commentary - still listen to him on Sirius.
That show is etched in the cells....Arnold Layne video (film) was played during the intermission.
A different time......A different Roger?
