Pink Floyd - The Final Cut




The Pink Floyd catalog, back on vinyl, 180-gram pressing

Pink Floyd's anti-war chart topper, released in 1983

Pink Floyd is completing the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd studio albums on vinyl with the release of The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse of Reason remastered and reissued in January 2017. These albums have not been available on vinyl for well over two decades.

Pink Floyd is one of the most iconic bands of the rock 'n' roll era. The band has two entries in the Top 20 Best Selling Albums of All Time list, matching the Eagles and the Beatles for two albums in the list. Their best-known album, Dark Side of the Moon, spent 741 consecutive weeks (14+ years) in the Billboard 200 Album charts. Their devoted fan base includes millions. And that's not even half of their achievements.

Over the past year, Pink Floyd Records has released the entire studio collection as stereo remastered versions on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl. All are mastered from the original analog studio tapes with album artwork faithfully reproduced.

Released originally in 1983, The Final Cut was another global chart-topper for Pink Floyd. During the Falklands War and the era of Thatcherism, this anti-war concept album explored the themes of fallen servicemen, the loss of loved ones and political betrayal.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason, Pink Floyd's 13th studio album, was released in 1987 and demonstrated a significant change in style for the band with more experimental use of drum machines and samples. The album also saw the return of graphic artist Storm Thorgerson who designed the now-iconic cover.
