3 stars Things were getting nasty for Pink Floyd in the beginning of the eighties, as tensions began to rise between Waters and the rest of the band, right about the time Richard Wright was kicked out by Waters (or he left the band, depending on what story you want to believe), and the time when Waters wanted to have everything under his control. "The Final Cut" is the last Pink Floyd album with Roger Waters, the rest of the Wall, or the first Roger Waters solo record, depending on your point of view. is a seamless fusion of sympthony, rock, blues and folk guitar, with the haunting poetics and vocals of one of the most egocentric, yet brillant lyricists and artists of our time, Roger Waters.

Final Note: "The Final Cut" is not a very good album. In terms of the songs themselves, most are completely forgettable, the lyrics are very poetic and clever, but that doesn't hide the fact that the surrounding music is, for the most part, incredibly trite. This is an album, not a poetry book. The other thing that gets me about this is Roger Waters voice, he sings the words with almost farcical dramatics that make even the good ongs a pretty trying listening experience. This album is good but not for everyone.

3+3.5+3+3+3.5+3+2.5+4.5+4+4+3.5+3.5 = 3,3

Good, but non-essential

Marquês_Prög | 3/5 |
