Roger Waters: Amused To Death

Features a new 5.1 surround remix by James Guthrie

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 smartphones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view.

The 2015 SACD edition of Amused to Death features a new 5.1 surround remix of the album completed by longtime Roger Waters / Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer, James Guthrie. The art has been updated for 2015 by Sean Evans, the creative director of Waters' 2010-2013 "The Wall Live" tour and movie.

Well after the long wait, I finally received and listened to this multi channel Hybrid SACD.

I understand others Love/Hate with this disc. I really liked it and want to listen again.

The mch mix is superb, content/lyrics are cool, Water's voice, not a signing voice more of a talking voice.

I will say if you are into surround listening there is a tremendous amount to listen to, nuances, all over the place, nothing ambient about this disc, love it.

I have spent a lot of money on my listening machine, no regrets with this mix.
