Is Radio Kaos total "Kaos"?

I prefer "Amused To Death"

I think that is Roger's best solo work.

Once they were through that, ATD and TDB both are better albums- less pressures of one-upmanship, I think.
I wholeheartedly agree with that. I like to listen to KAOS. In fact I am now. And I like to listen to AMLOR too. But they are my least favourite albums from any of the PF boys.

As for KAOS, I have been listening to it quite a bit lately to gain a new appreciation, which is due to this thread. What I have found is that to me it is a good record. It feels a bit short though. And boring at times. I was listening to the record, and didn't really even notice that I listened to 'Sunset Strip.' But all in all, if I could write something that good, and wacky, I would be very proud of it! :D

It's a little difficult for me to comment on the album since I've never heard it, but the tour is a different story. Excellent! Because the songs are interspersed with Floyd cuts, much of the story line becomes blurred. On the other hand, using Floyd songs punctuates the storyline at very appropriate places during the concerts, i.e. Money, Pigs(3DO), Arnold Layne, etc.
It's also quite important to understand that Roger never, ever created studio music that surpassed his live material (except perhaps DSOTM). So to experience the full impact of Radio Kaos, a fan needs to listen to the RoIO's.

Oh. Looky looky. Someone's running a Kaos torrent in the NPF torrent tracker now.

:lol:

Radio Kaos is underated but not "very" underated.

PACOH is my favorite Waters' album.

You know, on an unrelated note I just realized on the recently-found Ontario KAOS master that one of the effects in the transition from Four Minutes to Home is the same "clock" guitar noise used in later versions of Interstellar Overdrive.

I do STRONGLY reccomend this new Ontario show; it is by FAR the best complete KAOS show in history, with a great performance and unbelievable quality. It's certainly EX+, bordering narrowly on SUP.
