EDITORS’ NOTES

From the record title to the snarled lyrics, Roger Waters is clearly not content. His sumptuous, languorous post-rock mixes through gruff interjections about the state of the world. Waters channels Pink Floyd’s greasy funk in “Smell the Roses” and even their sense of epic grandeur in “The Last Refugee,” given an immaculate buff by producer Nigel Godrich. He’s at his malevolent best playing the exasperated old coot, either taking on God’s mistakes in the stately “Déjà Vu” or cursing up a storm in “Broken Bones.”

A Great Comeback to Roger's Songwriting Career!

Such a great vide to this album. Listening to it leaves a great impression of a great songwriter. This album was done great, wrote well, and an all around great reminder of how good Roger Water's is as a songwriter. This album has a very relaxed vibe that proves to have a dark feeling at some points leaves you excited for the next song. Can't say much is wrong with this album except the feeling of anticipation you get when expecting a Gilmour/Pink Floyd-like guitar solo to come in.
