About the album The Final Cut by Pink Floyd

album The Final Cut by Pink FloydEntirely written by Roger Waters, this is the last Pink Floyd album with Waters. It is also one of their most political albums mainly criticising the British role in the Falkland war.Some say this is Roger Waters solo album with the rest of Pink Floyd as a support band, though the great guitar work of Gilmour is certainly adding to the strength of the album.For those who loved the psychedelic work of the early PF this record must be a disappointment, there are no long compositions, no sound scapes; its a full blown rock album. with some typical 80s influence such as background quires and saxophone solos...But.. still it is one of their and not only their greatest albums.COMPOSER: WatersYEAR: 1983LABEL: Harvest EMITIME: 43'27PRODUCER: Waters, Guthrie, KamenCOVER: Waters, Christie, DodgersCOUNTRY: UKGENRE: progressive rockRoger Waters lead vocals, bass guitar, synthesizer, sound effects, acoustic guitar, artworkDavid Gilmour guitars, lead vocals on "Not Now John"Nick Mason drums, percussion, sound effects (with holophonics)Michael Kamen piano harmonium, conducting and arranging of the National Philharmonic OrchestraAndy Bown Hammond organ, Ray Cooper percussionAndy Newmark drums on Two Suns in the Sunset, Raphael Ravenscroft tenor sax
