4 stars Obscured by clouds is oftent ''obsured'' by all the great albums in the Floyd catalogue, but this is a great album. Of course it is a soudntrack, so it has to be more into moods, atomsphere and time. But isn't what makes great Floydian moments? The album starts with the mood-setting eponymous song, an instrumental one. We can hear some usual work on the guitar from Gilmour, wich is not that bad. The song then fades into ''When You're in'', including a good riff by gilmour backed by some good job from mr Rick Wright on Keyboards. Nick Mason stays true to himslef, with his great use of the cymbals. The mood stays mostly the same the whole album, but hey, that's normal! It's a movie soudntrack! Highlights include ''Wot's...Uh the deal'' and ''Childhood's end'', one of the best song David Gilmour ever wrote. We can compare it to the song ''time'' on Dark Side of the Moon, but with lyrics maybe as beautiful. This album is packed between two masterpieces, Meddle and DSOTM, and really, couldn't be bad. While the most underrated album in the floyd catalogue is definitely Atom Heart Mother, Obscured by Clouds finishes a close second.
