Prog Reviewer
2 stars The soundtrack for an abscure movie, Obscured By Clouds is an easily overlooked piece of Floyd history. There's not a whole lot to say about this mediocre album. Despite the psychedelic artwork and song titles, the music is some of Floyd's most straight- forward. "Burning Bridges" and "Childhod's end" are quite god, but the rest of the album is uninspiring. The band does a Ummagumma like "each member gets to write something rather than the group working as a whole" and, once again, it shows. I believe the obscuring clouds were actually marijuana smoke, because this was a real misstep, even if it is just a soundtrack.

Grade: D-
