This review is from: The Final Cut: Remastered (Audio CD)
I'd heard that this album was one of the most heartbreaking musical efforts I was ever going to hear but I was still unprepared for what I heard. From the opening mumble "Tell me true tell me why was Jesus crucified?" this album grabs you and won't let go. "One of the Few" up until "The Hero's return" take a little bit of growing - you need to read the lyrics before it really clicks but "The Gunner's Dream" is supurb, beautiful and desperate. You can't really have favourites with this album because it works as a unity, especially towards the end, but the title track is truly wonderful. Every Pink Floyd fan should own this album. Remember how DSOTM affected you if you were feeling a bit down? This is the only Pink Floyd album I own which can do the same thing. It's just got that little bit extra.
