Roger Waters solo music, just like David Gilmour's music goes right into my Pink Floyd collection. Relating to Pink Floyd, solos and tributes, as a Floyd fan we have no choice but to obtain all related music. This research becomes a fun hobby and I am finding new songs that I have never heard. To give you another direction, currently I have discovered a past Band called "The Tee Set" and this was found because of Syd Barrett belonging to this Band. I mention this only to offer some help as I can't tell you much more about this album "Amused To Death". I do enjoy this album and it's a must have. Absolutely 5 stars here. Thank you for taking a moment to read this review.

Former Pink Floyd bassist/vocalist/mastermind Roger Waters released his third post-Pink Floyd solo effort Amused to Death in September of 1992. Amused to Death was over five years in the making due to his battle with his ex-bandmates on the rights to the Pink Floyd name. When Amused hit record stores, it was modestly received peaking at #21 on the US album chart and had a huge rock radio hit with What God Wants Part 1. Roger's third solo album's sound was a return to the sound of his estranged former band, Pink Floyd unlike his two 80s works Pros and Cons or Radio K.A.O.S.. There are plenty of moments here (the aforementioned What God Wants(pt.1), the opening Ballad of Bill Hubbard, Three Wishes) that recall the sound of later Floyd works like Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut. Like those works, this is a concept album--the concept (as ever with Waters) being the crappy nature of modern life as depicted on television with the Gulf War and the Tijanamen Square incidents as examples and also the rise of a corporate world. His satire is blunt as usual and the targets of his scorn are obvious. Eagle drummer/vocalist Don Henley duets on Watching TV(which was about the Tijanamen Square incident and the collaboration of Henley and Waters triggered a friendship between the two which is still strong today). Legendary rock guitar legend Jeff Beck(like Clapton on Pros and Cons was a Yardbird) contributed taut, lyrical solos to a number of tracks(Bill Hubbard, What God Wants(pts. 1 and 3), Watching TV, Three Wishes, It's a Miracle and the closing optimistic title cut). The late conductor Michael Kamen contributed some stirring orchestrations on this album as well. Waters' voice was mainly reduced to a weary whisper, positively dripping with contempt due to the strain his vocal cords suffered from all the screaming on The Wall, The Final Cut and Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking. This album is a classic and a welcome return for Roger Waters. Highly recommended!

I hated this album when I first listened to it.
I bought it with Waters' other two albums, The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking and Radio K.A.O.S. and thoroughly enjoyed each of them separately just before I went to bed across two nights. I listened to them in order, which got me ATD last. Well, I didn't really like any song on the album with the exception of The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range. I thought it was boring, and confusing, and really droll.
Guess what? Amused To Death is now my favourite album.
I have every single recording Pink Floyd ever put out, and this tops them all, including the five-star stretch between The Dark Side Of The Moon and The Final Cut. It grew on me slowly as I listened to it over and over, 'giving it a chance' as all the reviewers on this site who liked it tell you to do. And it was SO worth it. Ever have a song that resonates with you musically and lyrically so much that when you sing along to it you can't help but grin and you get that feeling that you can't even sing anymore? Most of this album ends up doing that to you. It's not just that Waters' lyrics are among the best ever written, although they are; the music is actually excellent too. The album's weak point is right where it should be, in the middle, with three 'meh' songs that aren't too bad either. The other ELEVEN tracks are PERFECT. I mean, they're SPOTLESS.
1. The Ballad of Bill Hubbard - very moody, Floydish atmospheric music is the background to a World War veteran's tragic story. Sets the mood perfectly.
2. What God Wants Part One - Catchy to a fault, and so easy to sing along with, this is Roger's newest anthem and is every bit as good as Another Brick In The Wall. Ironic lyrics about how 'God' is used as an excuse by...well, everyone.
3,4.

Contrary to what many say, Roger Waters' solo albums are excellent. Check out this dense, intelligent album.
