Album Description & Collectors information:

This is the German release of "Final Cut" the 1983 studio album released by the English rock band Pink Floyd. The album is essentially a Roger Waters solo project, with the other members of the band playing supporting roles. The album is known for its highly political themes, dealing with topics such as war, Thatcherism, and the loss of Waters' father during World War II.

As mentioned, "Final Cut" is highly political, with Waters using the album as a platform to express his dissatisfaction with British politics and society. Many of the songs deal with the aftermath of war and the impact it has on individuals and society as a whole. "The Gunner's Dream" is a poignant tribute to the fallen soldiers of war, while "The Fletcher Memorial Home" is a criticism of political leaders who send others to war while staying safe themselves. "Not Now John" is a scathing attack on Margaret Thatcher and her policies, and "Two Suns in the Sunset" is a meditation on the potential for nuclear apocalypse.

Musically, "Final Cut" is similar to Pink Floyd's previous albums, with its use of synthesizers and David Gilmour's guitar work. However, the album is more subdued than their earlier work, with fewer extended instrumental passages and a greater emphasis on the lyrics. The album's production is also notably different, with Waters taking a more hands-on role and producing a more polished sound than on previous Pink Floyd albums.

"Final Cut" received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising the album's political themes and others criticizing it for being too bleak and lacking in variety. The album was also not as commercially successful as Pink Floyd's previous albums, with some fans finding it too different from the band's earlier work. Despite this, "Final Cut" has developed a cult following over the years, with many fans appreciating its unique sound and political commentary.
