I don't agree with this at all. In fact, I would cite Wish You Were Here and "Dogs" from Animals as prime examples of the band working collaboratively together, with more balanced input from each member. The Wall is when it starts becoming much more of a Roger Waters enterprise, with more outside session musicians being used. I prefer the band's earlier stuff to The Wall.

While I find Roger Waters' lyrics overly-negative, I appreciate that he's a better lyric writer than the other band members. A Momentary Lapse of Reason certainly suffers a drop in lyric quality, but I'm someone who focuses on the music, and doesn't pay so much attention to the words being sung.
