Amused to Death is the third studio album by English musician Roger Waters, released 1 September 1992 on Columbia. A remastered remix by Waters and James Guthrie was released in 2015. Roger Waters started working on Amused to Death in 1987 when he first wrote "Perfect Sense. It was several years before the album was released.

Released September 1, 1992. Amused To Death Tracklist. 1. The Ballad of Bill Hubbard Lyrics. Waters warns of the dangers of infinite entertainment. The album highlights some particularly troubling examples of this effect, such as the ability of people to distance themselves from real life calamity such as war because they are experiencing it as uninvolved spectators, and the subtle ways that the sensationalization of information shapes society’s feelings towards it. Many of the themes present in the album will be familiar to long-time fans of Waters'

The Final Cut, his last album with Pink Floyd, functioned as an explicit sequel to The Wall, but 1992's Amused to Death acts as something of a coda, a work where Waters revisits his obsessions - both musical and lyrical - and ties them together with the masterful touch of a mature artist.

There are few records out there that actually changed my life. This album is one of the few that did. The message, especially in these times, is more important than ever. More and more people seem to be obsessed about that everything has to be entertaining, and that movies, music, books, etc. is only there to simply entertain us. This album (along with other Roger/Pink Floyd albums) prove that just isn't the case. I only have two small criticisms: The music isn't that spectacular (but the presence of Jeff Beck helps), and you have to really, really be paying attention to fully understand the message Roger is trying to get across. But once you do, and you have your mind open, it's simply incredible that he manage to get across so much in just under 73 minutes. Having listened to and understood "Amused to Death", I often get frustrated when people say they don't care about the concept in albums (if they care about albums at all), and that they mostly enjoy the riffs and the catchiness of the songs. Worst of all, many of them (that I've met) really enjoy Pink Floyd. Yet they seem completely oblivious to what "Dark Side of the Moon", "The Wall" and, worst of all, "Amused to Death" is all about. The irony is absolutely stunning. There's so much more to explore and learn in the world of music, and this album most definitely proves it.

Writing this in 2018, the message is a warning we should have listened to. We now have a reality TV host pretending to be president and our lives, our very existence is a bad reality TV show. It amazes me that people recently got all butt hurt because of his Anti-Trump statements at his shows...have you ever listened to him???? Of cuorse he's anti-Trump, He's against fascists. Normally I think celebrities should keep their mouths shut on politics. Roger is educated and wise. . Preach on!

Full Disclosure: I'm not a fan of Roger Waters.There have been times in my life, when a friend happens upon me while I'm playing "my" music, where they inevitably remark, "It sounds like Pink Floyd." [Grins]... Nothing I play sounds like Pink Floyd other than Pink Floyd. Period. And, when it comes to my Pink Floyd collection, 'The Dark Side of the Moon' and ‘Wish You Were Here' remain my favorites. And while it’s true Waters wrote the lyrics and some of the music, the success of both these records bares the value of the group’s collaborative genius rather than Water's musical prowess. [Pausing]… Relax, PF lovers… I totally respect your passion for, and, unflinching love of all things PF. However, given the diversity of my music library… It’s very painful to listen to ‘Amused to Death’ because it’s so damn sophomoric. It’s all Waters. It’s so banal. It hardly qualifies as a classic and frankly, after many listens… A grade school kid could have done [lyrically] better. I mean, Television as Programming… WTF? Talk about cliché! My suggestion: Do what I did. Borrow it from your local library so you can promptly return it. Remind yourself, you will not be able to recoup the time lost after a listen or two. Cerebral, intellectual, inspiring this is not. [Genuflects]… PF fans, forgive me for I have, sinned.

After his out-and-out Masterpieces "The Wall", "The Final Cut" and "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking", I feel that this album is a different beast altogether. There's little melody, few hooks, and very little of the magic he seemed to have limitless access to before. The music is in some way happening on the surface-level all the time, with none of the depth of his earlier masterpieces. If that makes any sense.He always demonstrated that he is a master of creating atmosphere with assorted background noises, radiovoices and telephones ringing, but the song was always in center. Well; welcome to an entire album of mostly atmosphere.So, although I love Roger Waters' self centered stream-of-consiousness musings and ramblings on the afore mentioned albums, I never did get anywhere near the masterpiece-feeling from this one.
