The Pink Floyd vinyl reissuing machine rolls around to two of the group’s latter day albums, thus completing the roster. The Final Cut is their 1983 twelfth album, and their last one with Roger Waters. It features lots of Waters’ Falklands-related anti-war anger, giving a bitter bite to many of the songs here. It has been remastered, and is available on vinyl for the first time in decades on Pink Floyd Records.

- The Final Cut by Pink Floyd
8/10 Gregor Omelasz 3rd February 2017
This is more like a Waters solo album than it is a proper Floyd record, but it's the last good record they released under the official name, so I'll be grateful it exists.
It's an ode to his old man which has been a big part of his art in recent years, specifically with new The Wall tour and movie. It hits the right notes for the most part, it misses the elegance of Wright though, who had been fired by this point, he was actually fired during or after The Wall was made, since he was paid as a session player for the subsequent tour (feel free to fact check that one). Although, it was evident he was being phased out as early as Animals, so who knows how much of him would've made it onto the record anyway.
Anyhow, this is probably one of the most unique records in their discography, and ultimately, the end of the line. Amused To Death is a better Waters record though if he's your thing.
