Analogue Productions to Reissue Roger Waters' "Amused to Death"
Analogue Productions will soon reissue on double LP and SACD Roger Waters' epic, didactic Amused to Death, first released in 1992 in a very limited double LP edition. Anyone looking to purchase an original of the very limited first release could not have been amused by the going price of $300+ last time I checked.
The reissue, cut from the master tapes, will be overseen by engineer James Guthrie who was there for the original release. The Q Sound spatial enhancement effects are on the master tape so get ready for stuff appearing in the mix at your next door neighbor's house.
To state the obvious: Waters preoccupations in the lyrics are the most obvious adolescent musings stated with a super heavy lyrical hand, but the music and production counter well the blunt trauma wordplay and the sound is wicked pissa!
