ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roger Waters returned with his next studio album, a political rocker to be sure- “Is This the Life We Really Want,” on June 02, 2017. As is the norm with this vocalist-musician-composer and former member of Pink Floyd, the album follows a theme, one that concerns WHY children are being murdered in other parts of the world. For some, the subject might be too much and for others, an important effort to be sure. He is joined by an eclectic group of musicians that provide the foundation for him to weave yet another musical-lyrical tapestry for everyone to enjoy. We encourage everyone to seek this album out and consider adding it to their collection. You will be glad you did.
