About this album

Entirely written by Roger Waters, this is the last Pink Floyd album with Waters. It is also one of their most political albums mainly criticising the British role in the Falkland war.
Some say this is Roger Waters solo album with the rest of Pink Floyd as a support band, though the great guitar work of Gilmour is certainly adding to the strength of the album.

For those who loved the psychedelic work of the early PF this record must be a disappointment, there are no long compositions, no sound scapes; its a full blown rock album. with some typical 80s influence such as background quires and saxophone solos…
But… still it is one of their and not only their greatest albums.

    The proper album name - The Final Cut: Roger Waters Reads Boring Political Poems with Barely Any Singing or Remotely Interesting Music Arrangements.

    @Abomination317 Disagree! In my opinion it's the worst Pink Floyd album. Even The endless river is above it

    @junin_016 Well it's certainly better than the two that came after it, and in many ways it is very much a more focussed version of the Wall (that I find captures the mood it was trying to capture far better) and I just hate Wish You Were Here. Not entirely sure why. Could be the horribly uninspired title track, the forgettable other short tracks, or the overlong Shine On...

    It has The Wall kind of feeling to it, but is missing the "Pink Floyd" feel. Very dark and negative, easily my least favorite PF album.

    Not very Pink Floyd-ish? It's literally The Wall 2. (Spot on!)

    Some of the best lyrics on any album in rock. The music is a little lacking compared to other Floyd albums, but this is still a great record.

    The Final Cut>>>> Momentary Lapse of Reason, Division Bell, WIsh You Were Here, The Wall. But it's still not the best of Pink Floyd, primarily because it's a Roger Waters album.
