Waters, Roger - Radio K.A.O.S. (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-SBMK788594.2
"This was Waters second solo album after leaving Pink Floyd. His first "The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking" was a big disappointment to me and I did not really care for it. "KAOS" would fare a bit better, but still suffers from Rogers rather maudlin writing style and the lack of his former cohort David Gilmour as a musical partner. "KAOS" is a concept album about a wheelchair bound boy who can receive radio waves through his head. The story unfolds through his correspondence with a DJ at KAOS radio station in Los Angeles. Jim Ladd (a DJ in real life) did the voice of the jock on the record. In the end the boy in the chair decides he is going to blow up the world, but then changes his mind. This album is not all that far from the theme of Waters last Pink Floyd album "The Final Cut" in which the globe is neutralized by nuclear war during the "Two Sunsets" finale. I thought Waters got better with each solo album he did which puts this one squarely in the middle. Going back to it after all these years there is a lot of 80's musical cliché's to be found which tends to date the material, but this is still a pretty good album from mister Waters."-Steven Sly
