"In some ways, this is even better than The Wall. Waters got a lot of top performers to play on the album, usually behind his singing and speaking of the lyrics .... Guitarist Jeff Beck is heard frequently in the album, with his special virtuosity on eight of the tracks. ... (Waters is) certainly at his cynical best here - and without him Pink Floyd — never mind the general doom and gloom — wouldn't have been the top rock group it is and was." — Audiophile Audition, Jan. 12, 2016.
