Refreshingly miserable

Listening to the new Roger Waters album (Is this the life we really want?) at the moment, it's an eclectic mix of simple guitar based songs with some rich synth/orchestral accompaniment and a kind of "Animals" vibe (lot's of contemporary TV/Radio dialogue in the background tracks, including a guest appearance by the Trump!) The main themes are his normal soap-box themes i.e. war, liberty, fighting "the-man", paranoia, fear, capitalism etc. It's good though, I particularly like the track "Deja Vue", a song that proposes an interesting thought experiment, "if I had been God".. I enjoyed the line, "If I had been God, I would have sired many sons and would not have suffered the Romans to kill even one of them"..
