3 stars 'The Final Cut' falls on the wrong side of depressing. Whilst 'The Wall' can be forgiven for it's dark, cynical nature because of it's operatic qualities, this album has no such excuse. It isn't a show. It's simply a very unhappy, dingy, single album. And David Gilmour has a point when he said at the time "If these leftovers weren't good enough for The Wall, why are the good enough now?"

There are some very strong lyrics (as usual) and occasionally emotive music. The concept is war; interesting to experienced listeners but not really something I can relate to. The sound effects are abundant (again, as usual) and add to the storyline, but not the quality. And the singing is often cringe-worthy; it's out of Waters' range. Plus Mason's drumming here seems to be as unenthusiastic as Gilmour's guitar playing. No musician on this album actually seems to care, other than the "Jolly Roger". It's hard to think of what else to say about this album, other than that it is exactly in the same vein as The Wall, just a bit worse.
