4 stars The last of the concept albums. After the Wall the members of Pink Floyd were not happy with each other. By the time the tour for the Wall was over Richard Wright was no longer apart of the band. I can not say this is my favorite, but this one goes with the other big ones. I see where alot of people complain about how Roger Waters writes about war, but I can understand why his father who he never knew dying affects him. For me this album is very good, lyrically and musicallly. "The Post War Dream", is a great song to open up the album. Alot of these songs are abit slow and depressing, not that they are not good. Roger is good at writing dark, gloomy yet great songs. The Hero's Return is abit up beat, but then is turns to another dark song. The true downer of this album is David Gilmour does not have alot of input except for small guitar solos. I don't think that anyone can say this is a bad album though for that reason. "The Fletcher Memorial Home" was the first song I heard from this album. It's a very good song and is one that stands out. "Not Now John" is the one where David finally comes out to sing. This is a very good song that speeds things up in tempo. Roger also shares vocals on this track. Then the closer comes, "Two Suns in the Sunset". This song is a rather sad one I think. This is because it's the last song on the last Pink Floyd album with Roger Waters. I know some people do not care for Roger's last bit of work with Pink Floyd or his solo work, but he's my favorite musician over all. His work is deep, and he tries to make meaning of what he does. The best thing would have been, he looses the power trip and him and the other three get along. The Final Cut was the last of the Pink Floyd concept albums. If you get the cd look on the back and you will see "Dedicated to Eric Fletcher Waters", wich is Roger's father.
