3 stars This album composes the soundtrack for the film "La Valée" which I did not see (in fact the movie was never released commercially in Brazil), consequently my evaluation refers only to the songs individually not knowing how they fit to the moving actions.

Well, this work is crushed among some of the most important and remarkable PF's works and so it is sometimes forgotten and also it sounds strange due to a certain poppish bias quite different from previous current album like "Atom Heart Mother" or "Meddle" or even the yet to come "Dark Side of the Moon".

There are really some interesting songs like the soft 'Wot's uh the deal' (a hit here in Brazil, with its vocals Beatles-mode), the instrumental tracks and also the folky 'Free four'. Vocals and guitar in 'Stay' are the most Floydesque points of the album. I should recommend "Obscured by Clouds" for a prog newbie needing a low-impact work.

Rating: good, but non-essential. Total: 3 stars.
