Amused to Death is a concept album released in 1992 by former Pink Floyd bassist and songwriter Roger Waters.
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. With Amused to Death, Roger Waters sounded the alarm about a society increasingly and unthinkingly in thrall to its television screens. Twenty-three years later, Amused to Death speaks to our present moment in ways that could scarcely have been anticipated two decades ago. In 2015, television is just one option in an endless array of distractions available to us anytime, anywhere, courtesy of our laptops, tablets and smart phones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view.
Former Pink Floyd bassist/vocalist Roger Waters is a true artist at the apex of his career. He has created what is possibly the most powerful, thought provoking and unsettling music he's ever recorded (Doug Sax).
