Roger Waters may not have made an album of new material between 1992 and 2017, but he was very active during that quarter-century. He toured regularly, wrote an opera, reunited Pink Floyd for the 2005 charity concert Live 8, and revived The Wall several times, turning the self-absorbed rock opera into a political piece. Is This the Life We Really Want, his fourth song cycle, picks up on this thread, functioning as barbed protest music for the age of Brexit and Trump.

Our take on the latest from Pink Floyds bard of bleak, Is This the Life We Really Want By. Will Hermes. Will Hermes's Most Recent Stories. RS Recommends: Blake Gopniks Andy Warhol. Roger Waters has been exploring the thin line between the personal and the political as far back as the late '60s with Pink Floyd. Starting with the band's 1977 LP Animals , and moving through 1979's The Wall , 1983's The Final Cut and the handful of solo albums he's released since 1984, Waters has focused his attention on album-length concepts covering the dual subjects. It hasn't always been a smooth run. And it's a signpost for his first album of new material in a quarter century, Is This The Life We Really Want . Throughout his career, Waters has woven recurring motifs and echoed lyrics into a kind of conceptual continuity not of a story, but an ongoing dialogue. Is This the Life We Really Want leans heavily on these moments, more than ever before. The Amused to Death monkey is back to switching channels as an occasional segue device between tracks the record opens with ticking clocks and heartbeats These callbacks risk being heavy-handed, but feel like an integral part of the albums dialogue, cluing listeners in as to where contextual threads connect while building on whats come before to exami. They dont take many risks, but Roger Waters presents some of his most focused songs since the mid-70s. On paper, his decision to work with famed producer Nigel Godrich for Is This the Life We Really Want looks like a much-needed injection of new blood. After all, Godrichs signature sound has been a cornerstone in the legacies of Radiohead and Beck. His touch is immediately apparent from the outset, as Is This the Life opens with a ticking clock, bass played in the pulse of a heartbeat, and muffled voices-like Radioheads OK Computer interlude Fitter Happier meets the iconic intro to Pink Floyds The Dark Side of the Moon cut Time
