Twenty-three years later, Amused to Death speaks to our present moment in ways that could scarcely have been anticipated two decades ago.

“I’m remembering the record from [over] 20 years ago, that most of what I had to say then sadly still pertains today and is maybe even more relevant to our predicament as people in 2015 even than it was in 1992,” says Roger Waters.

Produced by Roger Waters and Patrick Leonard, Amused to Death is a musically ambitious work featuring a stellar lineup of musicians. Guitar legend Jeff Beck figures prominently on the album, bringing his signature virtuosity to eight songs. Guest vocalists include Don Henley (“It’s a Miracle”), Rita Coolidge (“Amused to Death”) and soul singer P.P. Arnold (“Perfect Sense” Parts I and II).

Also contributing were Waters’ longtime collaborators, guitarist Andy Fairweather Low and drummer Graham Broad; percussionistLuis Conte; and Pat Leonard, who played keyboards on several tracks.

The album reunited Waters with composer/arranger Michael Kamen, who supervised orchestral arrangements for The Wall, Waters’ semi-autographical concept album with Pink Floyd. Kamen arranged and conducted the National Philharmonic Orchestra Limited’s contributions to the songs “Too Much Rope” and “What God Wants, Part III.”

  1. Car selfies. Adults sharing Jr. High epiphanies as memes. Time killing quizzes. Time wasting “quizzes”. Dont hate me because I’m beautiful…Like me, over and over and over again. Leave a redundant comment that I’m ‘so pretty’ while looking at a reflection of me looking at my phone of me looking at my phone in the reflection of the mirror in the bathroom. Like my burrito. Dislike there isn’t dislike button because typing why you dislike something requires too many buttons and too much dedicated to truly disliking something and no one likes negative nancies. I tweet, I comment, I post, I blog, therefore I’m relevant.

    Amused to Death 2.0 is Amused to Death 1.0

  2. On here, it’s posted with a release of June 24th, but on Amazon, it has an “original release date” of June 12, 2015, but a release on July 24th…which is it exactly?
