Rocks In The Attic #217: Pink Floyd – ‘The Final Cut’ (1983)

RITA#217I’ve never liked this album, and I don’t think I ever will. It just sounds like Roger Waters recreating some of the more odious sections of The Wall, without any of the musicianship of that album.

If they were going to release albums in this direction, it’s probably a good thing they split up; and I don’t regard the post-Roger Waters Pink Floyd as being anything more than a diluted version of the band – all red wine, cocaine and yuppie dinner parties.

If you have any trouble seeing The Wall as the first Roger Waters solo album, which it sort of is, it’s not even difficult to regard The Final Cut as such. I see Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason’s names on the back of this record, but I can’t hear them coming out of the speakers.
