It was Pink Floyd's last studio album to include founding member, bass guitarist and songwriter Roger Waters, and their only album on which he alone is credited for writing and composition. It was also the only Pink Floyd album that does not feature keyboardist Richard Wright. Waters originally planned The Final Cut as a soundtrack album for the 1982 film Pink Floyd – The Wall. With the onset of the Falklands War, he rewrote it as a concept album, exploring what he considered the betrayal of his father, who died serving in the Second World War. Waters sings most of the lyrics; lead guitarist David Gilmour provides lead vocals on only one track. The packaging, also designed by Waters, reflects the album's war theme.
Roger Waters – lead vocals, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, rhythm guitar, synthesizers, tape effects
David Gilmour – lead and rhythm guitars, co-lead vocals on "Not Now John", additional backing vocals
Nick Mason – drums, tape effects
Ray Cooper – percussion
