Pink Floyd

The Final Cut
1983 Japanese Original, With Obi & Insert. Beautiful, Clean Copy. Nice Sheen To The Jacket. "The Final Cut Extends The Autobiography Of The Wall, Concentrating On Roger Waters' Pain When His Father Died In World War Ii. Waters Spins This Off Into A Treatise On The Futility Of War, Concentrating On The Falkland Islands, Setting His Blistering Condemnations And Scathing Anger To Impossibly Subdued Music That Demands Full Attention. This Is More Like A Novel Than A Record, Requiring Total Concentration Since Shifts In Dynamics, Orchestration, And Instrumentation Are Used As Effect. This Means That While This Has The Texture Of Classic Pink Floyd, Somewhere Between The Brooding Sections Of The Wall And The Monolithic Menace Of Animals, There Are No Songs Or Hooks To Make These Radio Favorites. The Even Bent Of The Arrangements, Where The Music Is Used As Texture, Not Music, Means That The Final Cut Purposely Alienates All But The Dedicated Listener. Several Of Those Listeners Maintain That This Is Among Pink Floyd's Finest Efforts, And It Certainly Is An Achievement Of Some Kind -- There's Not Only No Other Floyd Album Quite Like It, It Has No Close Comparisons To Anybody Else's Work (Apart From Waters' Own The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking, Yet That Had A Stronger Musical Core). That Doesn't Make This Easier To Embrace, Of Course, And It's Damn Near Impenetrable In Many Respects, But With Its Anger, Emphasis On Lyrics, And Sonic Textures, It's Clear That It's The Album That Waters Intended It To Be." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine.
