Limited Edition Japanese Import CD!

Pink Floyd's twelfth studio album, released on March 21, 1983 in the United Kingdom and on April 2 in the United States, comprises unused material from the previous Pink Floyd record, The Wall (1979), alongside new material recorded throughout 1982. This prophetically titled album, prompted by the Falklands conflict of 1982 and released the next year, explores themes of remembrance and the undelivered post-war dream — for which Waters' father had given his life. Completely credited to Waters, it was attributed to 'Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd' and featured Gilmour's vocals on one track.

The Final Cut was the last Pink Floyd album to feature Waters, who departed in 1985. It is also the only Pink Floyd album not to feature founding member and keyboardist Richard Wright, whom Waters fired during the Wall sessions. The album was accompanied by a short film released in the same year. The Final Cut reached number one in the UK and number six in the US, and has sold over 2 million copies.

"This may be art rock's crowning masterpiece, but it is also something more. With The Final Cut, Pink Floyd caps its career in classic form, and leader Roger Waters — for whom the group has long since become little more than a pseudonym — finally steps out from behind the 'Wall' where last we left him. The result is essentially a Roger Waters solo album, and it's a superlative achievement on several levels. Not since Bob Dylan's 'Masters of War' twenty years ago has a popular artist unleashed upon the world political order a moral contempt so corrosively convincing, or a life-loving hatred so bracing and brilliantly sustained. Dismissed in the past as a mere misogynist, a ranting crank, Waters here finds his focus at last, and with it a new humanity. And with the departure of keyboardist Richard Wright and his synthesizers — and the advent of a new 'holophonic' recording technique — the music has taken on deep, mahogany-hued tones, mainly provided by piano, harmonium and real strings. The effect of these internal shifts is all the more exhilarating for being totally unexpected. By comparison, in almost every way, The Wall was only a warm-up." - Kurt Loder, Rolling Stone, April 14, 1983
