This is a heavy album with some heavy language, but I’ve always liked it a lot. It contains powerful, profound truths!
I remember listening to it during one of my 2-hour, late night prayer walks while attending seminary the second time, north of Chicago.
He’s right about QSound too.

Published on Apr 15, 2015
Watch as Roger Waters discusses the 2015 edition of Amused to Death, completed by longtime Roger Waters and Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer, James Guthrie.
About the album:
An unblinking look at an entertainment-obsessed society, Amused to Death addresses issues that have only grown in complexity and urgency over the past two decades. In 2015, television is just one option in an endless array of distractions available to us anytime, anywhere, courtesy of our laptops, tablets and smartphones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view.

Roger Waters: “It was the Greatest Show On Earth … And when they found our shadows grouped ’round the TV sets … This species has AMUSED ITSELF TO DEATH”
Rethinking Matthew 24: “..then the end will come” — after the Pete Townshends “know?” — Millions, if not billions of people, right now, are not compelled to become Christians because of the bitter taste that professing Christians are leaving in their stomachs. People have a right to see the real thing! (I have a heart for Roger too!)
Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!
