2 stars First: I am a huge Pink Floyd fan, got all their albums and think it's the greatest band that this world ever spit out. But I never was really excited about their soundtracks "More" (worst Pink Floyd release ever, with exception of the fantastic "Nile Song" on it) and "Obscured By Clouds". The record sounds very symplistic and also a bit uninspired, even the guitar work of David Gilmour is as always great, but the whole think lacks in originality and memorable essence, which was always an quintessential trademark of Pink Floyd. Ok, the record has it's moments but boreness is the feeling that overcomes me when I listen it full length. The cover art is the ugliest ever on a Floyd release, so the overall album thumbs down IMO, even it's not bad. For die-hard Floyd fans only, even I am not impressed! Maybe I should watch the movie to make up my mind for this.

Pink Floyd - "Obscured By Clouds" rating: 5/10 points = 52 % on MPV scale = 2/5 stars

point-system: 0 - 3 points = 1 star / 3.5 - 5.5 points = 2 stars / 6 - 7 points = 3 stars / 7.5 - 8.5 points = 4 stars / 9 - 10 points = 5 stars

Collectors/fans only
