Reports of Roger Waters protests are just more Right-Wing delusion aimed at giving people the vapors. They’re not based in reality. Yes, people have walked out. But it’s not the mass exodus you’d expect from the breathless reporting.
The truth is, “Is This the Life We Really Want?” is not an album for the casual listener. None of Waters’ solo works have been, really. People who show up expecting Pink Floyd are going to be disappointed (you can usually spot them, because they’re always whining about David Gilmour).
