  • A true masterpiece!
  • magnifique!
  • Perfection. This song perfectly describes our society right now and what have we done and what's happening to us. A perfect summary of Neil Postman's "Amusing Ourselves to Death" (Specifically the last chapter). The lyrics are godlike. "They repeated every test/They checked out all the data on their lists/And then the alien anthropologists/Admitted they were still perplexed/But on eliminating every other reason/For our sad demise/They logged the only explanation left/This species has amused itself to death" just wow. Roger Waters is the best lyricist alive in my opinion
  • Best track on the album by far. Always gets me.
  • The entire album is a gem, has the power to touch the fibers of the soul, is perhaps the only artist to sing in English that has this effect on me ..
  • nice discovery!
  • жаль,что он жадный педераст,музыку хорошую пишет
  • For the comment down a little bit: You have to listen to the Ballad of Bill Hubbard (the first song on the album) to know what he is talking about.
  • We bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth. LOL
  • Masterpieces of meditative acid pop-.-.
