Remastered re-release of the twelfth full-length studio album by legendary British Art Rock band.
The last Pink Floyd album to feature founding member Roger 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 recording was plagued by conflict; guitarist David Gilmour felt many of the tracks were not worthy of inclusion, but Waters accused him of failing to contribute material himself. Drummer Nick Mason's contributions were mostly limited to sound effects.
Waters planned the album as a soundtrack for the 1982 film adaptation of "The Wall". The album contains unused material from the previous Pink Floyd record, "The Wall" (1979), alongside new material recorded throughout 1982. "The Final Cut" is an anti-war concept album that explores what Waters regards as the betrayal of fallen British servicemen—such as his father—who during the Second World War sacrificed their lives in the spirit of a post-war dream. Waters provided lead vocals for all but one track, and he is credited for all songwriting. The album was accompanied by a short film, also titled "The Final Cut", released in the same year.
"The Final Cut" was a commercial success, reaching number one in the UK, surpassing "The Dark Side Of The Moon" and "The Wall". It was less successful in US, peaking at number six on the Billboard album charts.
With over 1,000,000 units shipped in the United States, the Recording Industry Association of America certified "The Final Cut" Platinum in May 1983. It was given double Platinum certification in 1997. "The Final Cut" has sold over 2 million copies, however, it was the lowest-selling Pink Floyd studio album in the United States and worldwide since "Meddle". 
Remastered from the original analogue tapes 180 g vinyl, issued in a gatefold sleeve. During the original release, "When the Tigers Broke Free" did not appear on this album.
