The irony gets a little heavy, and — no surprise from a founder of Pink Floyd — so do the lush production tricks and the all but unchanging s-l-o-w tempo. But damned if Roger Waters’ 14-track rumination on some of our choicest social ills doesn’t score some serious points, especially in ”Late Home Tonight,” which, with music that evokes both a kiss at a drive-in and the peace of the wide-open sky, shows us an American pilot soaring toward Libya to bomb children, giddy as an exuberant teen with the sheer joy of flight. Not all the tracks on Amused to Death strike their targets so cleanly, but those that do give this record unusual depth.
