Looking again at my recent series of Pink Floyd album polls, I saw that these three albums each were left way behind the other two in each of their polls.

More was way behind PATGOD & ASOS, OBC was way behind DSOTM & WYWH, and TFC was way behind Animals & The Wall.

So let's give these three relatively-overlooked albums a second chance, in a poll of their own.

Obscured is my favorite of these three, followed by More, and then The Final Cut even though I admit it has higher artistic substance to it.

Obscured by Clouds is one of my favorites by them anyways - it's a unique crossing point between their early years and their classic period with a heavier than normal edge.

Final Cut and More each have their moments but overall I find both tedious, overdrawn and unnecessary. I consider more a pure film soundtrack - ObC is also a soundtrack but doesn't play like one.

Obscured by Clouds is my favourite Floyd album bar none.

More.  Both as music, and film.  Clouds, second and Cut third.

Close between The Final Cut and More. I give the edge to TFC, though, because of songs like The Memorial Fletcher Home and the title track.
