Il nuovo album di Roger Waters Teletruria. Nella sua fugace relazione con il cinema breve destinato ai circuiti promozionali, Nicolas Roeg realizza un numero ridotto di videoclip. Play Pause. Testo 5. Gli occhi di ogni sconosciuto. Ok, prende crema e zucchero? Alle fermate dei camion e nelle bettole che vendono hamburger Nelle limousine Cadillac, nelle compagnie di persone insignificanti E di persone piegate indietro E forme dormienti, sui gradini del marciapiede.
E ora Da dove mi trovo Sopra questa collina Ho saccheggiato dalla piscina. Mi guardo intorno Cerco i cieli Mi oscuro gli occhi Quindi quasi cieco. I find the major downside to this album to be, like most of Waters material, a lack of musical development. It is literally bombarded with endless lyrics which often take front stage. The music itself has some promise but never fully develops because it plays a minor backing role throughout the whole album. Roger, you've got Eric Clapton!
Why not really use his skill to make something amazing? Instead Clapton fills in short solos between Roger's endless verses. Another problem is trying to figure out what it's about. Apparently it's about a man's mid-life crisis, but there's so much else thrown in and it wanders on so much that the concept is basically lost.
For the rest of you, good but hardly essential. Three stars. While "The pros and cons of Hitchhiking" was nominally Waters first solo album, "The wall" and "The final cut" were of course very much his babies. Even prior to that, along with the other members of Pink Floyd, he had enjoyed a lengthy solo spot on the "Ummagumma" album.
At the time of its release, this album generated a certain amount of controversy and continues to do so , with many considering it politically insensitive, mainly in terms of the lyrics but also the sleeve illustration. Waters of course maintains that they misunderstand the message. The album titles take us in real time from am through to around am, each track having a narrative sub-title. The line up of musicians is impressive to the point of indulgence, including as it does such luminaries as Eric Clapton, Andy Bown and the National Philharmonic Orchestra.
In addition to this, we have a list of "actors" which includes Water playing the part of "a man". At times it is hard to distinguish this album from "The wall", " - Arabs with knives. This is perhaps forgivable, as "The pros and cons.. While there is a certain appeal to the music here, for me it is far too one dimensional. Each song seems to take on the same doomy character, with Waters ranting on remorselessly.
The verbosity of the lyric sheet makes it clear that this is not to be an album with lengthy instrumental breaks, and indeed we find ourselves listening to Waters voice virtually from beginning to end.
Eric Clapton does his best to infuse some interesting guitar work, but for me even this is of dubious merit. Clapton's guitar prowess is beyond question, but his cold bluesy style does not fit well with Waters compositions, which cry out for the warm emotion of David Gilmour's style. Above all though, what the album really needs is a "Money" or "One of these days" to liven things up.
Even something along the lines of "Another brick in the wall" would break the tedium. It is a pity really, as this could have been a good album.
Had Pink Floyd decided to take this Waters creation on and been permitted to develop it democratically, perhaps we would be hailing this as another bright star in their catalogue. As it is, I hesitate to recommend this to anyone other than devoted fans of Waters.
Even then, I would suggest listening to no more than two or three tracks at a time. Roger Waters, for a considerable long time, was the main thinking force behind Pink Floyd and during that time the band sound slowly changed from the trippy, psychedelic, experimental and rather detached space rock they developed in the late 60s and early 70's to a more bluesy, focued and emotionally deep music, which, to this day, does not have a better definition than Pink Floyd music.
After leaving Pink Floyd, Roger took those blues influeces and the lots of unsolved emotional issues even further, which can be sees pretty clearly throughout his first actually second, but does Sounds from the Body even count as a music album? It is also importanto to note that in The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking the guitars are definitely the main instrument, possibly because Eric Clapton is the lead guitarrist that may be also why there are so many blues influences here, but oh well.
It is also important to note that, despite the naysayers dismiss this album in almost as many ways there is, The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking and most of Roger Waters solo albums are quite influential among recent progressive rock and progressive metal acts.
One last thing: many also throw rocks at Roger's solo career because of his singing. OK, I got to admit that Roger Waters is not the best singer there is, but his vocals fit perfectly in the music he presents us, specially when you consider the lyrics. Grade and Final Thoughts Roger Waters's solo albums, along with the whole Pink Floyd discography, are albums that I was raised listening. I literally listened them since I was just some months old, although The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking I only listened recently becase my father lost the album in his collection until recently, so it is really hard for me not to like this kind of music.
Besides, this album does contain very good music in it, so the grade is 4 stars. Waters continues the extreme quiet-loud, whisper-shout dynamics of The Final Cut and reveals that he has lost any remaining song writing skills he once had.
Also his voice has lost all dynamics, tone and melodious qualities. It has become a grating listen, as can be witnessed on the finale of the odious kitsch of Go Fishing. This album has never gotten more then 5 spins over the 25 years since it was released. When listening to it for this review I've been desperately searching for a reason to give it more then 1 stars but I haven't found any.
Even with a mediocre album like Aboutface , Gilmour wins the first round against Waters with ease. I would still dedicate my utmost admiration for Roger's contribution to one of my most beloved band and so many masterpiece songs he has written. This being said, I am unfortunately not really passionate while I am listening to this album. A concept album which is not clear to identify? I have been used to describe my feelings about music on this site just as I feel it.
When an unknown band releases a great album, I grant them for it. When a great band releases a great album, I grant them for it. And when a giant releases a so and so work, I can only express what I feel: some disappointment. Even if in Rodger's case, my admiration was stopped after the great "Animals" album. This album is not bad, but it doesn't offer any passion just like "The Final Cut" - what a title! Unemotional vocals like during the bluesy "Sexual Revolution", non-existing great instrumental parts overall if you would except the good guitar work during the title track.
That's the bill I got here. To be fully honest, I would say that "Every Strangers Eyes" does hold emotion, skills and passion as a good old Floyd song. But this is only one out of many. What has to be granted to Rodger with this album, is that he invented the real time music since the album starts at AM and ends at AM , some forty minutes or so later. The successful 24 hours series might well have borrowed from here!
It is a shame that Clapton is not better used on this work. He ought to have been put more on the front line, in my opinion. The whole music reflected here is just average. I can't really recommend this album.
Nor to Floyd fans, unless they are keen on "The Wall" and the follow up album "The Final Cut" which was just a left over of songs that should have appeared on the original project of a triple album and were rejected by the other band members. Two stars. After finishing The Final Cut , Pink Floyd didn't even bother to tour the album, and Roger went straight into the studio to work on this. At this point, Roger was clearly convinced that, not only was he great than Pink Floyd, but he was so beloved and popular that he could take whatever abstract rant he had in mind, set it to a minimal amount of melodies, and the public would gladly take it and ask for more.
Apparently, Roger somewhat succeeded in that vein, as this album has amassed a sizable cult following to this day. You know what, though?
I don't care. The instinctual reaction of a thousand Roger-holics may be to flame me with accusations of being a simpleton who only likes "catchy pop songs. I also want to specifically point out that I often enjoy it when rock albums have obscure concepts, and I take enjoyment in attempting to uncover not only the superficial concept or the plot but also the deeper, "abstract" meanings behind them.
Furthermore, I've found that it's easier for me than for most others to uncover the meanings of such albums: I understood the plot of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway after just two listens and had a good grasp of the deeper, spiritual ideas within just a few more listens , and I've even glimmered meaning and substance from the majority of Yes' Tales From Topgraphic Oceans.
Apparently, it's a bunch of surrealistic dream sequences with a common theme of marital infidelity, rife with Roger's weird lyrical twists though these are VASTLY inferior to his work in Floyd. At least the concept of The Final Cut , the pain of losing a loved one to war when you know that it won't mean anything in the long run, is something that a great many families can relate to.
But this Well, I guess if you like to cheat on your spouse, but do you think about being attacked by Arabs in the process? And fans of this here album love to go on about how Roger's emotions just poor out all over the place I get a nice emotional twinge in the penultimate track, "Every Stranger's Eyes," but I can't get myself to care about the rest of this album's subject matter at all.
This could be forgivable with strong music, but compared to the ones on this album, the melodies on The Final Cut were Beatles-quality. In addition to liking that album's lyrics and concept a lot, I really liked some of the melodies, and there were a lot of neat twists that I enjoyed.
Here, though, the only significant element in this album's favor is the presence of Eric Clapton, whose gimmick-free but emotionally charged and technically flawless style of playing is totally different from Dave's but sounds just fine to me.
There is a lot of enjoyable guitar work on this album, and the fact that Eric's able to come up with so many good solos, given how little he had to work with in the "meat" of the songs, only speaks to his credit. In any case, if you're a really big Roger fan, you might love this, and if you do, more power to you. But for the rest of us
