I haven't heard it or owned it in quite a while. I think it probably should have been a Roger Waters solo album. Over all it's not bad though and has some good moments.

Love Gilmour's playing on the album but his voice is missing - too much Roger, just like on the Wall.  It changed the sound of the Floyd - from Animals on, Roger's voice and words backed by a very familiar session band.....call me when you need a solo, indeed.  
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Hmmm. Maybe Unpsychedelic Paul would be better.

For the ultimate Final Cut experience though, you need to see the movie. Smile



You really don’t live up to your user name

Ummagumma is one of the coolest trip journeys ever

The final cut is ok but rather mediocre

I feel Gilmour should have sang more. But that's impossible as he just wasn't into the material. "Call me when you need a guitar solo".
It just doesn't sound like a band album.

You can see a thread between Wish You Were Here and Animals as it's still the Pink Floyd band. The same band can be heard on The Wall.
But the thread between The Wall and The Final Cut isn't a thread. It's more rusted barbed wire.
Checking the connections and the band must have really been destroyed trying to get Pink Floyd The Wall Movie up and running.
Your Possible Pasts I like. Two Suns In The Sunset.
But if the band had seemingly ran out of ideas and couldn't collaborate as well.
Then... Well it came out as a Pink Floyd album. And that was that.


I don't think I wholly agree with you... I mean, yeah, there's not much of a similarity between TFC and WYWH or Animals, but I can hear the evolution from The Wal to it, and I can even imagine many of the songs fitting on The Wall, both musically and lyrically. However, I guess I understand your point of view, and I guess there's a very obvious explanation (well, at least two), and that's Richard Wright's absence (as well as the total control Waters took over this album).

Not among my favourites from Floyd, by a long shot, but it's still got some really great songs. Among them, The Hero's Return is particularly frustrating, because it's so short... but I was able to download a single version of it, that includes, parts 1 AND 2 together, making the song long enough to be enjoyable... why it was left out of the album, and why was it not included when the album was reissued with When the Tigers Broke Free included (if only they had also included that whole song, I would have actually bought the album again).

Still love it but find listening to the whole in one sitting to be a slog......it seems Side 2 never changes tone or key.  I still rate it above the Wall due to its high points, just wish Roger had written more than half an albums worth of material.......I swear I hear little bits of the Wall all over Cut.

Maybe worthy of it's own discussion but the worse [email protected] of a PF related product was the censored cover to Pros and Cons Of Hitch Hiking.



I mean...SERIOUSLY ?

Now that I've heard the whole thing I don't regret for a moment getting rid of the LP.

When it was released as a single in the UK, the lyrics were changed from “f**k all that” to “stuff all that”, this to protect the delicate sensibilities of the British yoof.
I recall that the sanitised version even got some airplay on a couple of New York FM stations. For about a week.

I thought that the Wall was a triple album. Must be somekind of subliminal sign.

It is in the middle of my PF studio albums list: a good album. But I agree with many here that it should have been released under Rog's own name since he seems to have trapped his fellow band members in a lockdown.

I think David Gilmour said it succinctly: "F*ck all that we've got to get on with these."
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

I like it a lot -- certainly MUCH better than the next couple of really sh*tty albums that came out after.

Underrated like "Animals" and "Meddle"

I thought that was the end of  it for Pink Floyd when that whatever you want to call it came out. Just Roger whining and droning on and on and on. Didn't even like The Wall but I liked the live Berlin Wall production with other musicians playing. I even have the DVD.
