3 stars I got this album while I was waiting for "Dark Side of the Moon" to come out. This recording was the first listening experience I had with "Pink Floyd."

I have to say that it didn't impress me a whole lot. Let's face it, after you hear people like Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore play the guitar, David Gilmore just doesn't quite get it. Still, this album does have some tasty stuff on it.

I like the first two songs, "Obscured by Clouds" and "When Your In," but they don't do too much and you are kind of waiting for the songs to end, even though they aren't that long. This record is a sound track to a movie called "The Valley" I think. At any rate, these two songs are powerful and ear pleasing.

I didn't really care for "Absolutely Curtains" much because of the last part.

"Stay," on the other hand, was a very cool tune. It is good and catchy. It sticks with you after you've heard it.

The Floyd use kind of the same format on "Dark Side" as they do here. "Mudmen" is a reprise of "Burning Bridges." This is also a very good tune. Gilmore does play very moody stuff. It is highly enjoyable regardless of speed.

This is a good recording, but I can't say it is essential by any means. I give it 3 stars.
