5/5 on the grounds that a) it's brilliant and b) it is not KAOS Part II

Added a subwoofer to my Sonos system over the weekend and thought I'd listen to Amused To Death.

Always ranked as one of my favourites and I have to say its probably been well over ten years since I'd properly just sat and listened to it all the way through.

It's still a weighty old thing and no mistaking its a Roger Waters album....and I still absolutely adore it.

Going OT I know, but I have to ask: How do you rate the sub-woofer - is it worth it?

I would rate this a four. It has its ups and downs. I think Waters might be a bit to on the nose sometimes, and it can easy become a bit comical in its over use of sound effects. But yeah, it has some very strong songs. But not my favorite Waters album.

This album is such a brilliant album.
Released almost 25 years ago. Remember seeing it in the record store on its release day and I was shocked that it was there, did not know that he was gonna release it.
Played it from day one every day for many months in a row and I was pissed that he did not tour, the greedy bastard ( he lost money on the Radio KAOS tour in the US so he cancelled his European KAOS tour).

There are only two really crap songs on it, they should be buried deep into a big black hole.
Can you guess which two songs are crap?
