Figured this would have been done already but I couldn't find nothing. These two Floyd soundtracks sound nothing like each other and are both underrated by many. Choose!

I have a feeling "Obscured" will take this, but I'm voting More.

great songs on both but I think Obscured is a bit more consistent.

As much as I love `Obscured By Clouds', `More' has a very special place in my collection. The last beautiful, shimmering, acid-drenched full-blown psychedelic album the Floyd recorded.

I'm a bit biased, as I've also got a lovely blue/rippled tie-dye Floyd/More t-shirt, though I doubt it fits anymore, I wore it about 15 years ago!

UPDATED - Yes, I still found I have the t-shirt. No, it does not fit me anymore. No, it did not look good.

Obscured is one of my favorite Floyd albums.  It beats out the usual Floyd fan favorites DSOTM and The Wall for me, so putting it up against More is an easy choice. 
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

MORE. How many times in France i was in a bar or cafe and MORE would be played. It's a lost classic. For that, it holds a special place.
 Both are great, though ;-)

'More' for me, no contest.  'More' is a shimmering, hippie daydream for the most part - love Wright's Farfisa work especially.  ObC is my least favourite Floyd album (well, on par with Momentary Lapse....).

Obscured by Clouds (it's right there, in my top ten of all time), no freaking contest. 

EDIT: More is really nice too, though I just wish the band did something about the filler tracks.

Obscured is more of a focused album for me. More feels like a collection of music they made for a movie.I love the music on both albums though

I really love 'More', 'Cirrus Minor' and the 2 instrumental 'Theme' tracks are even amongst my Floyd favorites.

I don't care for Obscured. I rarely get further then track 1 and 2.

Obscured by Clouds, More is a bit too inconsistent and badly recorded.

More has Cymbaline, Obscured By Clouds has a bunch of nice pop songs. The importance of Obscured by Clouds is IMO in the lyrics of Free Four. Together with Echoes it's a prelude to Dark Side and the direction taken by Waters up to The Final Cut. But  I like More more.
