One of the Most Provocative Insightful Anti-War Song

Unlike other antiwar songs Roger Waters uses this anecdote to convey his feelings towards the war in the Middle East. Though many have taken this song out of context and said it was anti-Israeli, listeners of this song need to see it for its content and purpose not for its choice in anecdote. If anything is to be taken from this well-writen epic song, it is the fact that our own point of views cause us to follow and pay a blinds eye to what is going on (things that we have little to no control over), we must then judge what we chose not to see with our moral values and then create our own point of view. Our fears in the unknown is what causes our hatreds, our racism, and our blind approval to the government for the War. We must overcome this and see the human behind each person we kill and dont kill in the Middle East. Throughout Water's musical career, much has been said to show the cons of war (the Wall, the Final Cut, etc.) but this song by far is the most straight-to-it antiwar theme.

Roger has always been Roger

I find it humorous that some people are offended by Roger's political statements on this album. Roger has always been like this. If you gave this a one star because of the political message then you can head right over to Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall and give those albums one star as well. The songs are very good, just tone down the background singers a bit.

Do not allow yourself to lose respect for Roger by buying this set

Very entertaining bit live, but lacking true thought in regards to the issue he's attempting to tackle. Looks like a sheer blatant attempt to bash Bush (not that I'm a Bush fan) but not a very well educated attempt. It was undoubtedly the low point of one of the greatest live performances I have EVER seen (DSOTM Tour 07, Irvine Meadows, CA) Sorry Roger.

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Roger Waters was Pink Floyd's grand conceptualist, the driving force behind such albums as Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. In the wake of Syd Barrett's departure, Waters emerged as a formidable songwriter, but it's this stretch of '70s albums -- each one nearly symphonic in its reach -- that established him as a distinctive, idiosyncratic voice within rock and, following his departure from Floyd in 1985, he continued to create new works in this vein (notably, 1992's Amused...
