Waters discusses the 2015 edition of Amused to Death, talking about the release on vinyl, sound manipulations, and its relevance today. When asked if it’s an angry record:
Angry no., Angry feels sort of undirected to me. Is Amused to Death sarcastic? I’ve definitely used sarcasm from time to time in my songwriting career. Probably some of it is sarcastic, and probably some of it pretends to by cynical, but it’s not. There’s nothing cynical about the record at all. I’m often described as a being a cynic, and I’m not.
